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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For KLH 20 CrossoverI recently used these to rebuild a pair of crossovers in my KLH model 20s. Two of these in parallel to equal 8uf. After only twenty hours of use I can hear major difference between these and the 47 year old original capacitors that had fallen way out of spec. Open and airy highs and solid, no longer veiled mids. Expect these to only continue to impress as time passes. Thanks for another quality product P.E!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Audio PMPC 4.0uF CapBecause my bi-amps were past warranty and beyond repair costs levels that I wanted to spend. I removed the amps from my near-field monitors and made my active speakers passive with crossovers that I made using the Dayton Audio Precision Caps. Also, installing a Zoebel network using the formulas and parts from Parts Express, I made my very nice monitors even better sounding than before. The response is virtually flat all the way across, but with much better articulation and the bass seems to have extended itself into the sub-range. I am very surprised how well this project turned out.

Dayton Audio PMPC-4.0 4.0uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor

Can I use two 4.0u capacitors wired in parallel to replace one 8.0u in my speaker crossover. Will it function properly?

Asked by: Kioti
Yes you can wire two of these together to double the value.

I understand these metallized polypropylene capacitors improve the sound of high-fidelity speaker systems. But how well do they work in pro audio speakers? Would these caps improve the sound of PA and/or stage-monitor systems? Please advise, thank you.

Asked by: Galleonmaster
Caps will create the same differences/changes in any type of speaker system. Poly caps are popular in pro audio speakers because they can handle more power.

Replacing caps in old 1959 Pilot cab w 4 speakers-- 4uf 50V cap & 20uf/25V. will using ones w right uf but higher V affect anything?

Asked by: cinderbaron
The voltage does not matter, that is just how much power the cap itself can handle. As long as the values are the same, the voltage can be anything.
