Default madisound surplus 10uf caps

Has anybody had any experience with the 10uf tyee caps from Madisound, priced at 60 cents each?

If so, can anybody speak to their sound, or flavor if you will when used in a crossover? I've read good things about them, but cant seem to find anybody that has critiqued their sonic qualities..

Thanks for mentioning the sale. I just ordered 100 of them. At that price there is nothing to compare them against.

Hi,

The Madisound Speaker Store

10uF film caps for the price of a nonpolar electrolytic ?

10uF 100V Non-Polarized Capacitor | 027-340

Next stupid question ....

The surplus 2.7uF caps are nice too.

rgds, sreten.

The dissipation factor quoted by one of the reviewers is quite high (0.23 even if it's in %) for a real polypropylene, the product is likely a polyester. Too good to be true. IMHO.

Still,it's better choice than BP/NP electrolytics.

They are a steal.. I don't know how they have had them stocked for so long.. I only plan to use them in parallel circuits such as zobels and in low pass filters, but would be interesting to know if anybody has used them in series with a driver. Guess it would be amusing if somehow they sounded really good..

I picked up 12 of them to play around with.. I see they are also clearancing out their ClarityCap SA caps for close to the price of the PX line; picked up some of those too. They sometimes have really good buyouts. They used to have some nice GE poly caps. They recently had the nice Aura NS3 aluminum drivers for $12.50, and a couple other super cheap Auras, including the NS6 for cheaper than Parts Express' buyout. Great deals, I try to check their site often.

When ordering, I asked the guy if he has ever heard any feedback as to the sound quality of the cheapo tyee 10uf caps and he said something about when you work at the candy store you don't hafta mess with stuff like that..lol.. I like Madisound a lot, but I have found that you don't ask their opinion if you are building something non-traditional or cheap..

I got mine a few days ago, here's the graph of the dissipation vs frequency (20Hz-100kHz) using an ESI 2150
