Default Tesla cap value

I have a cap labeled "Tesla TF202 1u5 50v"

I've been searching and I'm having difficulty finding what crossover HZ this value would be.

Does "1u5" mean 1.5 uf?

(I'm replacing a woofer in a 2-way sealed box and I want to salvage the tweeter and use the existing cap.)

Default Thanks, sreten

I had some older sealed speakers on the shelf. They are Sony ss-3033. They are 6.5-7" woofers. The cap is on the woofer but it looks like it's wired to go to the tweeter. The speaker boxes are marked as 8ohm impedance.

Looking at some 6db crossover charts...it looks like this means the the crossover point is around 800-1000hz.

Does this sound right? That seems low range for a relatively old Sony tweeter.
