There are no set rules for what type or amount of by-pass works best. I start at about 1% of the cap being by-passed of the best type cap I have available and apply whatever logic makes sense after that. I would suspect that the difference between a Digakey/Panasonic PP and an X-Russian military teflon as a crossover component by-pass is marginal at best.
