The Metz 60CT-4 flash head does not have a capacitor (a condenser as Metz puts it). The capacitor is in the power pack.
The Metz 45CL-4 insists on using its own capacitor.
The Quantum Turbo contains only the voltage step-up circuitry, no capacitor.
There is a way to have the Metz 60CT-4 power pack to bypass the capacitor, thus can be used with the Metz 45CL-4 or any other flash unit with high voltage input. This is how the Metz 60CT-4 power pack can power the Mecatwin 60-40, which has its own capacitor.
