Default Aleph ELKO capacitors

Dear all,
I found ELKO capacitors (bipolars) 220mF/63V. Can I use them in my ALEPH 5??? I'm asking this because on capacitros is written that they are using for speakers networks.
Thank you,
Regards,

I think you mean 220 uF? I'm pretty sure you can use them since the rails are +-34V, so max voltage that could happen anytime (even in failure) is 68V. Real voltage will be smaller of course.

Cheers, Hannes

Thank's Hannes,
Yes I was thinking 220uF. I forgot to mention that capacitors are from VISATON and they are "designed" to work in speakers networks, that is my concern. Now I'm using YAGEO standard electrolityc capacitors bypassed with 470nF MKP and somewhere on forum I've read that using bipolar capacitors make some improvements to overall sound.
Thank's

Don't worry about that.

In the pearl group buy the 10uF coupling caps were Mundorfs, which are parts specifically for crossover networks. Usually that only means high voltage rating and axial case.

Cheers, Hannes
