Default Where's the best place to get a capacitor?

Trying to fix a crossover.

6.8uf, 100v, 10%. It says hanlan on it. It is an axiom audio crossover. "bulging" so I want to replace it, no tweeter sound (and they work in other speakers).

I don't know where to buy this. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Look at Parts Express? They almost certainly have a polypropylene film cap in that value, and 100V or higher.

The leads don't effect the performance. It's the values that matter.

Yes. It works fine in other speakers.
