Redesigned my crossover and took out the duelund which has to be replaced by a new capacitor of a lower value. So before spending a fortune on capacitor-looks (only) I figured to compare some of the caps that I had laying around but now via measurements. I also do comparative AB relay switched listening tests but these are not included in this run.
Got a reasonably priced Capacitance/ESR/D/Q meter (PeakTech 2170, calibrated before the measurements), that would at least be good for comparative measurements since I could not find sufficient specs/data on the net (Only a lot of statements like "Very low ESR, Lower ESR" etc)

I was surprised by duelund......
