Dayton Audio PMPC-3.0 3.0uF 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 Loudspeaker 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-3.0 3.0uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor
Dayton Audio PMPC-3.0 3.0uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Added Lost ZingI selected the Dayton Precision Audio capacitor to replace the 3.0 uF electrolytic in my vintage Frazier Monte Carlo speakers. These are close tolerance caps, making them ideal for speaker crossover applications. These audio grade capacitors restored the silky smooth high's these speakers are capable of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Speaker CapsI have used these before. I just bought the 3.0 as an exact replacement for one in some Klipsch kg4's that I just bought. Keeping them sounding excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome price for a high performance cap!Used this on a pair of HiVi TN28 tweeters that are mounted on top of my speaker enclosures (for supertweeter duty). Sound light, with just the right amount of breathiness to the overall mix. Great buy.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain caps with boutique performnce, as toutedExcellent value for money - transparent and VERY closely matched. I used a pair of these ganged up to make 6uF in series with a Morel MDT29 (obviously bypassed with a coil) as a high-pass and they're really very nice indeed. I assume the rest of the range is of similar quality, well worth spending a few bucks to upgrade all of your crossovers apart from the very highest-end ones. A difference you can actually hear...

Dayton Audio PMPC-3.0 3.0uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor

I need a capacitor that will give me 7 Khz High Pass Crossover and UP... Does this one will do it ? If YES, which inductor value I need for a 8 ohms driver 40w ? Can I just modify your current Part # 266-474 with this cap instead ? Thanks !
