TK not a technical question but a subjectional question
Yes, I understand it's a subjective question. Like I said, there's no downside to this from any perspective - it will work and sound fine.
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
Paralleled pairs of 0.47 μF. K40s will be fine. "Smearing" may be an issue, when a big cap. is bypassed by a smaller part and the dielectrics are different.
Guess why I advocate bypassing large valued metalized polypropylene signal caps. with 10% 716P series "orange drops". ;> )
There is no negative "subjectional" impact from this that I have ever heard.
However, if you are looking for negative opinions I am sure there are many who will play with claims of "parallel ghosting" causing "smearing" and such.
I have recently tried different types of small bypass caps in my speaker crossovers, and they do sound different. But paralleling K40Y-9s is what I frequently do, as I have a load of 470nF.
