I bought them 6 years ago. I think they were from partsconnexion. I'll confirm when I get home.

There is next to no room in the box. But, I think I've figured out how to do that now.

There are specs here, saying that DC saturation is "up to" 20A at 5% 60 Hz -- whatever that means....

I have used these in my CLC supplies primarily based on steenoe's comments.

Bob,
Have you noticed any of the benefits Steen mentioned?

CLC vs. CRC
I’m using the Erse coils in low end of the big JBL crossovers at the Diy Audio event, I like them there, ( air core in the mid range and top end).

but I know your asking about them in CLC power supplies.
After reading I’m now adding .47 ohms in series with the inductors in my power amp’s CLC filters to avoid resonance and ringing. So yes size them to not saturate but some series resistance is helpful.

I have a pass f5 and replaced crc with Hammond 159zl. Not a big difference, but I also have a lot of capacitance in the amp (200,000uf). I would say chokes are a nice to have, not necessarily a must have.

I added C and L to a friend’s F5, and ripple went down from 50ish mV to around 3mV. Incredible top end, if the rest of your chain is up to it....

My aim is for below 5mV PS ripple in general.

Yes. I never went back to CRC. I have been very happy with the PSUs.

I'm doing an amp now that I may use a CRC only because I have absolutely no room for an inductor - at least I haven't figured it out yet.

Not on a FW, but I changed out CRC for CLC in the L'amp CCS version and it was an improvement. Smoother sound.

You used the erse with steel core? Great! That gives me some confidence to implement. Thanks!
