RE: Vishay and Wima DC Link Caps in H.E. speaker Crossovers

Well Fred,
It looks like I get to be first on this Forum to try out WIMA 4 lead DC LINKS on an ALTEC system, or maybe any High Efficiency system, since no one responded, as to having any experience doing this.

It should be WIMAs with four lead outs, not any VISHAYS, which are audibly inferior.

I would not use the 4 lead WIMA DC LINK caps alone, but rather, bypass each of the crossover's cap locations, with multiple lower value (typically under 1 uF ) - small uF value film caps with 0.01 uF being the smallest. No single cap " does it all ", especially midrange through the high end.
