Looking for a pair of 8.2 uF caps for tweeter crossover
« on: October 08, 2022, 08:50:01 PM »
I'm looking to upgrade the Sonicaps in my speakers.  Tried the Sonicap Platinum and ready to find something different.  If you've got a pair in a drawer, send me a PM.  :thumb:

I don't have anything off hand but the Sonicaps haven't been my favorite. Lots of things to try. I even think 940C are an upgrade with GR speakers. You can parallel caps to get more C if you need.

I'm going to try some Miflex copper .1 bypass to see if they make a difference.  Danny R. thinks the Sonicap Platinum is the best, but my ears aren't his ears.  We'll see, and I'll report back.   Dave suggested another option.  What's NOT an option is to spend $6-700 on a single pair of crossover caps.
