Am I correct in understanding that the basic DS principles could be summed up as follows?

HV >> Capacitor >> Inductor >> Stepdown Coil >> Output

I tried that and it's possible to charge the AV plug capacitor in the same way as connecting physically to the output of the car's ignition coil. I used a receiving plate to charge the AV plug cap. It works.
