Dayton Audio PMPC-15 15uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor

Dayton Audio is once again leading the charge at bringing high quality, high value products to the speaker building community. Their new line of 1% tolerance capacitors gives you the ability to construct high-precision crossovers, which can eliminate "stereo wandering" and solidify the imaging and soundstage of your speaker systems. Commercial manufacturers know of this problem and buy thousands of capacitors so they can hand-match them for their products-- now you can effectively do the same, because every capacitor is matched! These capacitors share the same excellent build quality, long-term reliability, and sonic clarity of the standard Dayton Audio metallized polypropylene capacitors. Well-known in the industry as the brand of choice for use in loudspeaker crossovers, they offer the performance of boutique capacitors at a fraction of the price. Let the excellent reputation of Dayton Audio and their Precision Capacitors help you build the best speakers that you possibly can.

Dayton Audio PMPC-15 15uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor
Dayton Audio PMPC-15 15uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A definate upgrade from NP EL CapsFor the price you don't expect Daytons to be the "best" MPP caps out there, but they are noticeably better (smoother, less coloration, more detail) than the Bennic Electrolytics I replaced in a bunch of B&W VM1s (not that the OEM caps sounded bad by any means, but these MPPs do project a more natural sound quality. Vocals pop with more realism, metallic chimes etc: transient attack more detailed with more realism to the ring). If you're thinking about MPP caps but don't want to break the bank, these have good natural/pleasing sound quality and are definitely superior to NP electrolytics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capacitor revived aging speakersI have used Dayton Audio Precision Caps twice now. Once on a pair of 1979 ESS PS6-D "bookshelf" (ha ha ) loudspeakers and now on a pair of EPI 180's. Both came out great but my latest project on the 180's was really a labor of curiosity and love. The 180's had a bad rap for imaging and I wondered if all the people writing about them had ever fully restored them. I bought the 15uf and 1.5uf caps and wired them in parallel to make 16.5 to most closely match the 16uf originally rated. I also bought mills resistors and 1/4 terminal disconnects. I had to crimp them a little to go on the smaller EPI male disconnects but the 1/4 were good as I used 14 gauge wiring and one of the disconnects required stuffing two of the wires into the disconnect. Finally I purchased some Accousta-stuff to round out the "remodel" and the sound definitely opened up with a great deal of clarity in the mid-range, better imaging, more bass, and more highs out of the inverted tweeters. With high end caps you can spend a lot of money. I just didn't want to sink a hundred bucks (or more) in caps alone for this set of speakers and I didn't have the money for 50 dollars caps anyway. These caps worked great. I believe the high tolerance really helps match the stereo speakers and adds to the speakers' ability to image and produce a more detailed sound field. The quality of the crossover components are better than new, now, and the 180's overall are performing better than new, in my opinion. Finally I also added banana-plug binding posts to round out the modernization.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Caps - Very 'Open' Sound QualityCapacitors with precision tolerences are never cheap. After using the majority of esoteric capacitors on the market over many years, the sound quality of the Dayton Precision Caps was very surprising. Plus I saved money!Give them a try on your next project. You will not be disapointed.
