Capacitor markings

A quick googling of capacitor markings indicates it's likely a 33uF capacitor. Try putting the crossover schematic together and posting an image. Would be easier to tell that way if that's in the ballpark. You can use XSim as a quick way to draw the schematic. Remember to use the ground symbol at the negative amp terminal so you don't have to draw all the ground return connections.

Thank you all for the enlightening explanations! Now, I can start looking for an "affordable" 33uF 100V 5% cap. I don't think I will be able to post the schematic of the crossover but I have attached the pic. of the actual piece.

Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom,

If it's in parallel with the woofer it's probably good enough. It's the tweeter caps that would be more usefully substituted.

My usual recommendation for cheap, high value is the Mundorf MKP line. If you feel the tweeter is particularly agressive, Clarity ESA would be even better. If you need air and fairy dust, Mundorf Supreme's. Another thing to replace before a woofer cap is the tweeter resistors. :) Try the Mills ($5-$7)

Best,

Erik
