You Know You’re a Crazy A’phile When….

33mfd-clarity.jpgYou start buying capacitors for your speaker crossovers that are as large as a baseball and weigh a half-pound each!

These ClarityCap SA’s are for the midrange circuit of my Usher Dancer’s.

It’s the type of thing Alon might put in his Magico’s. (Actually, this part is a bit low-end for the Magico!)

  1. Changing caps in an already well tuned x-over is not a simple matter of substituting a similar value of “better quality” cap for the original. Even though a meter will tell you that the two caps have the same capacitance, other parameters will typically cause the filter to misalign. This can cause significant deviation from the intended frequency response of the speaker. Same is true with inductors. Unless you know something about passive filter design and have measurement equipment, you are highly unlikely to improve the sound of the speaker.
