Dayton Audio PMPC-10 10uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor
Dayton Audio PMPC-10 10uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton 1% CapsI used these recently in a pair of Genesis II's that I refurbished. There was a great increase in the clarity of the highs after the old electrolytics were replaced. Not only are they reasonably priced, they perform very well. I've got them in a couple of different speakers now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works greatI used these when I rebuilt the x-overs for my EPI 100w speakers and they work like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommendedMy speakers are 6 years old(not really that old) and I replaced the original manufactures bipolar electrolytics with these and other similar Dayton Polypro caps. I am now really hearing my speakers for the first time. Wish I had done this earlier. I knocked the features down 1 because the leads could be a bit longer and that would help for difficult placement in an existing crossover board. Excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SoundI built my cross-over using these dayton caps. They are very crisp and could handle the wattage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big upgrade for your vintage or DIY speakersI replaced the old dried out caps in my EPI 100s with these Dayton caps. What a difference! The Daytons opened up the high end significantly. For the price of these caps, you can't go wrong.

I am replacing a 10uf 250v cap in a crossover.  Some other folks have replaced this with the Dayton of the same value, others have used a Audyn 10uF 400v.   Does the voltage make any difference?  Anyone know how they compare sound wise?

Asked by: Rmac587
The voltage in this case will make no difference. As long as the value is the same and the voltage is as high or higher you will be fine.
