thank you guys!
Please, could you explane to me a thing?: does the tweeter receive more power from the amplifier by using a 3,3uF capacitor or by using a 4,7uF capacitor?
Thank you for your patience!
Best regards

ARGHHHH!!!
It's incredible...I've visited all the elecrtonic shops in my town...and I found only 3.9 uF Mundorf capacitors.
The Mundorf were the only polypropylene capacitors I found...so I bought them, with all my anger and my disappointment!
So guys, in your opinion...there will be all these differences between 3.3uF and 3.9uF in the tweeters sound?
What do you say?...please, let me know your opinion!...I trust only you!
Regards

Well, you are moving the crossover point down by 20% or so, so you will only see noticeable increase of output for about an octave. But if you just have a small dip that's bothering you, it may be enough. At least you are not much more likely to fry the tweeter with that small change.

So try them, you already have them. This is diy, after all. You might try both parallelled on one speaker just to see what it sounds like with a greater change, as a reference, a way to get a feel for things. This is how we learn to correlate the theory with the effect.

Play with it. Alligator clips are your friend.
