Default Group buy of Xicon 50V polystyrene?

Anyone interested in 5% Xicon polystyrenes? I need


I would probably be interested in some other values in this range (<10nF). My goal is just to hit the ~$13/100 price point at Mouser.

Possibly I could be talked into matching some of these for interested people, since I will likely be doing matching for my own purposes.

If interested, just post the value and quantity you want (let's say multiples of 10). My one request is I'd like to avoid any holy wars about how good or bad these are.

To keep the thread alive, I'll ask what you use them for?

The really small ones are destined to become miller compensation caps, the others I'm going to try out in some active xovers. Going to try out the basic circuit posted by Grey with BJTs and JFETs, see how it sounds. 18dB/octave using three caps, two resistors, and one active device seems promising.

Hi. I will be needing about 10 -10nf, if they are small enough in size to fit my xover board. Radial would be best.
Also 10-100nf. Best, Greg R.
