How to wire M2020 capacitor switch
Hi Ray,
I really don't want to know about another type. Just knowing about one is enough to keep one up at night!

The three caps are marked:
"Dayton MPT 3.0uF 250V 5% AUDIO GRADE." ...2.0uF....1.0uF.

No wiring diagram accompanied the kit. I found the FaceBook page of David Dicks' Common Sense Audio and I sent him a message asking for wiring instruction, but his response is yet to come to hand.

I have no particular affinity for this switch. When I tested for continuity and found myself confused, I figured I would wire up the caps using a more 'simple' switching configuration. I am not versed in electronics as you guys- even the wiring diagram you guys gave me has me 'studying' it. I need something like an 'Idiot's Guide.' Anyway, if I recall correctly from my independent study of basic electronics, the caps have no positive or negative side, and I should have no issue in wiring simple switching for them and putting them between the woofer's positive and the tweeter's positive. Right? I appreciate the help, guys.
