Dayton Audio PMPC-6.8 6.8uF 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-6.8 6.8uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor
Dayton Audio PMPC-6.8 6.8uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clearer, cleaner sound!These replaced some electrolytic capacitors that had aged. The sound is clearer, cleaner and the imaging became more accurate. These are physically larger than the replacements mostly because of the working voltage rating. If there was lower voltage rating offered, the sizing may become closer to the electrolytic type. Be sure to check your physical spacing before buying so you can be sure they will work! I was able to fit them on the crossover boards with some minor modifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work!I used these in my very first home built speakers. Because I'm new at this,,, I can't comment on how they sound compared to others. I do however know that they didn't blow up when I wired them wrong the first time around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic audio capacitor!Superb results!! I used the Dayton PNPC-6.8 6.8uf @250V to rebuild my pair of EV Wolvrene CR-35 crossovers (3500Hz). They measured on the button with my Fluke capacitor checker. I sure was plesantly suprised with the excellent results!!As a fellow customer, I strongly recommend this product to you all!!Outa' sight!!

Dayton Audio PMPC-6.8 6.8uF 250V Precision Audio Capacitor

Is this a good replacement cap for: 6.8 MF 10% 100v ? Also, is 1% tolerance better than 10%?

Asked by: Fleir
Yes this will work fine as a replacement for that cap. A 1% tolerance simply means the cap will measure closer to is published spec than a 10%, but you will not hear a difference between the two tolerances alone.

I am replacing a capacitor that is 6,8mF 63V. Can I use this one? I don´t know if it is ok to change one that is 63V with one that is 250V.

Asked by: leosgonewild
As long as it is a non polarized cap this will work fine. The voltage only indicates the power handling of the cap itself.
