Default Euro to American translation

I am building a Troels design using my much abused Scan 15W/8530
and newly acquired 2905/9500s (Thanks Jason!). Here's the design:

W1501

I would appreciate a little help translating from euros to dollars on the
crossover parts. Here we go...

EURO: LUFTSPULE 0.47 MH R=0.36 , which I translate to mean air core
inductor.

DOLLAR: PE Air Core

EURO: ROLLENKERNSPULE 3.30 MH R=0.37, which I'm guessing means
iron core inductor.

DOLLAR: PE Iron core

EURO: FOLIENKONDENS. AUDYN CAP MKP QS 3.30 MF/ 630 V 5%
AXIAL. I'm REALLY guessing now.

DOLLAR: PE cap

EURO: FOLIENKONDENS. M K T 22.0 MF / 160 V 5% AXIAL

DOLLAR: PE Cap

EURO: METALLOXIDWIDERSTAND 8.20 OHM 10 WATT 2%

DOLLAR: Madisound

Anybody see anything they don't like?

This one refers to a special design inductor, not your run-of-the-mill ferrite-core. It's sort of a cross between air-core and ferrite-core. Looks like this:

If I were you and couldn't find that exact inductor I think I'd settle for a low inductance Hepta-Liptz type air-core replacement rather than a classic ferrite-core. Solen has such coils but high values are quite expensive I'm afraid, it may be worth importing the European part after all.

Your guessing is right, Folienskondens(ator) simply means film type capacitor such as standard Solen caps. If you can't get a 22uF Dayton cap better use a Solen, they have that value. It's more expensive but worth it if you are only getting a few units.

lol I don't speak German but I agree it has to be a metal oxide resistor. Most of these are 5% tolerance though, 2% is more common in wire wound resistors such as Mills. I don't think using a 5% tolerance would make a difference though.

Herm,

Willitwork knows his components.

All the parts mentioned are Intertechnik production items, just download their catalogue.
(i speak plenty German and used all those parts in my diy loudspeaker years)

Thanks Guys for the help!

I checked on that perfect lay Hepa-Litz at Solen, and you
were right about the price. Hell, I didn't even pay $80
a piece for the tweeters! I'll check on getting the exact part
from Intertechnik.
