  • WTB: 10uF NPE caps

    I need six 10uF 100V +/-10% NPE caps for crossovers. PE is out of this cap until mid April. Can't find them anywhere else. Anyone have a few they're willing to sell?

    Do you really need electrolytics? At values that low, even most budget-minded builders find the cost of poly caps (such as the one in the link, which is currently in stock at PE) to be pretty manageable. While they cost 6 times more than the PE's NPEs, getting six of the Audyn's would only have an extra cost a little over 20 dollars. The polys would also perform better and have tighter tolerances. If you need them to be NPEs for other reasons, then never mind.

      If you parallel a 4.0uF and a 5.6uF, you'd be close enough (npes typ. will run a bit higher than not, anyway).
      A 3.3 and a 6.8 would prob. be a tad over 10.0uF. (sc)

        Just look for bi-polar capacitors, such as nichicon uvp1j100med...
        edit: Unless of course you absolutely need axial leads.
