Before it's put on a slow boat from China

Started by amdx September 22, 2015
I need a 2.7uf 63V non-polarized capacitor for a speaker crossover.
  It is a radial lead 10mm x 22mm cap.
Ebay has them from China. (slow boat)
I've checked Digi-Key, Mouser, Allied, and Newark.
I've also checked several speaker part sellers.
I have found an axial lead cap, for $0.50 plus $6.95 shipping.
But I'd prefer a radial lead.

Have any other sources?



Refoamed a set of Pioneer HPM 700 speakers, also put two OEM tweeters
in them. I thought I was done, listening test showed no output from one 
tweeter, found bulging cap in crossover. Argh!

You might try ebay at this number. It is 100 volts but going up in voltage should be ok. There are others if you don't mind higher voltage. 321699248915

Yes, I see I have other options, I was hoping to install a cap that looks like the original 1982, 10mm x 22mm capacitor. I may not get what I want. Thanks, Mikek

Maybe very careful surgery of the old cap, stuff the new one inside the hollowed out old one to get the old "look"? Ed

The Rubycon 35V rated caps must be pretty good :-)
