Default Help identifying cap type

Hello,

I removed this cap from a Kenwood KVS-310 3 way xover. It shorted when the midrange went. Its a 10uf 100v cap that appears to be made by Hanlan? I'm not familiar with this type of cap. Need to know its type... its rather large compared to other 10uf 100v caps I've found. More importantly... where can I buy one? If someone could possibly link me to one, that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

It looks to me as a bipolar electrolytic. If it is in series with the speaker unit
you should replace it with 10uf poly cap. of some kind and if paralel just any bipolar good for 100v or more

thank you. I'm not quite sure... I think its series? one end is connected directly to - and the other connects to a large resistor and another cap eventually going to the speaker +... not sure... hope this pic may help...

Without having tried it myself, this looks ok for the purpose, just replace it in the other speaker too.

Just use MKP types anyway. In series it will be a potential improvement, and in paralel it won`t make any difference. Just make shure that it is good for 100v or more, and that you do the same in both speakers.

Farnell or any of your local component pushers can help you with the capacitors. It is very common.

Here, you go, in canadian funds too

Solen Electronique Inc.

Bonus; This is a 250v cap, it shouldn't pop like your electrolytic which seems to have expanded from heat far enough that the plastic wrapping snapped.

Awesome! Thanks everyone! It was glued against a large ceramic resistor. So that was definitely the heat source. ;-)
