RE: DC LINK capacitors in Speaker Crossovers

Most people are about two to three decades behind, in capacitors for audio. ( See next paragraph ). The DC LINK cap will filter AC and DC, just like any film cap on the list you referred to.

There are a new wave of HIGH performing industrial-use film caps, often meant for pulse duties, that I have used in amplifier power supplies the last 30 months, with wonderful results.

I am just asking if anyone has used one type ( DC LINKS ) in speaker crossovers. When you read the specs on them, they exhibit low ESR, and have high peak current capabilities, which are good characteristics in a film cap, that needs to do audio.

With my post, I am trying to find out, who in the audio universe, has taken the time, had the imagination, to experiment with same, and WHAT are their impressions, results.

Thank for asking, lets see who has done what with DC LINKS ! Will I be the first on my block ????
