Dayton Audio DMPC-20 20uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor
Dayton Audio DMPC-20 20uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Realistic Mach One speakers (40-4024/A)Bought a complete set of Dayton capacitors to match the values of the old stock caps. At 38 years old, my brother's Mach Ones sounded muddy, dull and lifeless and was in serious need of a recapping. Once installed and tested, these speakers shocked me with how well they opened up and sang! Fantastic music detail. I wondered if the clarity was ever this good! I'm sure some may disagree but I believe they are now near or at audiophile quality. Dayton Audio capacitors truly do deliver more bang for the buck. I'm willing to bet that the naysayers of Mach Ones have never heard them with fresh caps to know what they really can do! You'd never know these speakers were close to 40 years old. I can't stress enough the importance of recapping the crossovers in any vintage speakers. Updated capacitors can make a difference of night and day.For Realistic Mach One 40-4024 and 40-4024A applications, this particular Dayton Audio 20uF cap used for the woofer should be piggybacked with a 2.0uF cap in order to get the 22uF value of the original (big thanks to Parts Express customer service for the advice!) as Dayton doesn't appear to make single 22uF caps.Recommend using silver solder (electronics grade) for good connections.Thank you Parts Express!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality ProductI used Dayton Caps to replace the old foil caps in a tube amplifier I got at the Flea Market. I was not able to listen to the amp before the caps were replaced so I have no reference for comparison but the amplifier sounds nice with these caps in it. I am very pleased with the quality and the selection! Thanks again PE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade your crossoverI designed five of these (different values) into each of my new crossovers. They are superior to NP electrolytics in accuracy, stability, and distortion. They are priced right, and are reasonably compact. They did everything I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to Buy American without Looking Like a NutI used these caps with my woofers, to go with the coils in a second-order low-pass crossover. I was pleased with the result (a much more definitive bass) but I was also pleased with the price. At just under $6/cap, this product is 7 times more expensive than its electrolytics equivalent, but what's $7 - especially when there is no equivalence between electrolytics and polypropylene? Furthermore, Dayton's caps are a mere fraction of the cost of buying Danish. This isn't even Dayton's top cap. It's just that, on low-pass crossovers, the cap is not critical, so you can make an excellent upgrade that won't break the bank. This is one of those times where buying American makes good sense.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great in my Mach one crossoversWorked great to recap my 30 yr old RS Mach one speakers. Sound great now. Bass response is tight Midrange and tweeters are clear. Nice increase in spacial aspects of the sound.
