Default Need help on EQ circuit

Hi ! i would like to build the eight band sub eq from here http://sound.westhost.com/project84.htm
Right now i am sourcing for parts. May i know what type of resistors i should buy ? I am also confused on what capacitors C29, C38 and C39 are ? Can they be aluminium electrolytic ?

The power supply for this http://sound.westhost.com/project05.htm
recommends i use wall warts. However i would like to use a transformer. May i know how to connect the transformer to this circuit instead of the wall wart ?

1% metal film will be fine.

They are DC blocking/AC coupling capacitors. Aluminum electrolytic will work, but film type are preferred.

That all depends on the transformer. Does it have single or dual secondaries? If it has dual secondaries and the voltage is appropriate, I would use an external bridge rectifier and leave D1, D2, D4 and D6 out of the circuit.

Thankz theAnonymous1. I have bought the resistors and the other parts. I found a transformer which is 15-0-15 10VA and a wall wart for about the same price. Which should i go for ? Btw i have trouble finding the LM7815 and LM7915. If i were to omit these will it explode ?

The LM7815 and LM7915 are the voltage regulators. These are the heart of the circuit and building it would be pointless without them.

I WOULD say get the 15-0-15 transformer and a bridge recitifier, but if your not even familiar with what a voltage regulator is/does , then I suggest you stick to the original circuit and parts..
