Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: "I tried the Wima DC Link caps in my electronics and did not like them at all"


I could see what you are saying - and hearing - with a DC LINK all alone.

I always use a DC LINK as the " main cap", one in a bundle of caps, to get a certain total wanted uF value. Across it ( bypassing the DC LINK ), I put carefully selected additional film caps, much smaller in uF values, to voice the circuit, particularly if its a Single Ended circuit, until it sounds correct by ear. This is precisely how one gets a wideband-sounding single ended circuit.

Usually, one would add four to seven additional film caps, specific values, high in quality, all done by ear, as part of a bundle.

IMHO, no one cap, on its own, used alone, can do what a carefully selected bundle does, to play wideband, correct sounding, etc in a SE amplifier circuit. Same would apply to a speaker crossover.
