Dayton Audio PMPC-12 12uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor
Dayton Audio PMPC-12 12uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These worked perfect for my vintage Polk rebuildsI wanted to rebuild the x-over on three pairs of Vintage Polk speakers, SDA SRS 2.3TL, SDA SRS 2.3 and RTA 11T. There was much pressure to use More expensive caps on the highs on my forum. I did not have enough to do that so I decided these had to be better than the stock caps Polk used. I did the 2.3TL first with all 1% and right away I noticed a big improvement over stock and the more they burned in the better they sounded. So I did the other two pairs with these on the highs and regular Dayton's on the lows, what an improvement, I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking to improve speaker sound. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Caps are Equel to Sonicap and others!!I wish I tried Dayton caps years ago. I have been upgrading speaker crossovers for many years, and would spend $20-30.00 per cap. I did a side by side comparrison to a well known high end cap. the only differnace was that the Dayton cap produced more, cleaner, and the bass was better controlled. Needless to say I will be using the Dayton caps and pass the savings onto my customers. I highly recommend these caps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They are capsI couldn't tell you if these are good or great. They work, the KLH Model six speakers I used them in sound good and switch nicely. Next time I think I'll spend less. When I build or Mod my electric guitars, there is a never ending supply of high dollar caps to choose from for the tone circiut. My favorites are the cheap green .022 caps from Radio Shack. I'm sure the cheaper caps will work well too.
