Dayton Audio PMPC-8.2 8.2uF 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dayton Polypro CapsI bought five different size caps to recap my AR91 speakers. I chose the precision caps for the smaller values BUT there was no need as the 5% tolerance caps were all within 1%. I was amazed. My speakers sound great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great crossover capsThese caps preform extremely well, surprising strong clear audio for speaker crossovers. Wouldn't use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and ServiceI am an extreme novice when it comes to electronics. I wanted to repair my crossovers on a set of Advent Speakers and had it not been for the help and support of Parts Express, this would have never happened. They stepped me through the process with great Customer Service and supplied me with schematics and the best parts available. They sent the parts and the Speakers sound better than ever. Thanks so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for X-overs for the pricePlease remember when using any cap that it needs a little time to break-in and might sound bad for the first hour or so. Being 1% cap works great in X-overs too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good performance for the priceI have a set of Marantz Imperail 8's. I noticed that they sounded flat and not a whole lot was being seperated anymore. I looked into crossovers and found out that the capacitors from my 30+ year old speakers were more than likely dead. I purchased these and WOW what a difference. The seperation is much more clear 100% better than before. For the price of these you can't go wrong!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A well made cap that works...I use these caps often to restore vintage speakers. They are reliable and durable - you can solder and de-solder them several times over and the leads remain strong. The sound of caps in general is an issue unto itself, but let it just suffice say that I much prefer these caps to the other inexpensive caps such as the Jantzens (too dull) and even the Solen metallized (too bright) capacitors. Bottom line: Great cap for very little money.
