  • Caps doubt

    i'm designing 3ways loudspekaer and the choice of caps is between jantzen standard z cap or claritycap esa.
    do you tried them?
    what are your impressions ?

    I've used plenty from the Jantzen range and have always been really happy with them, standard caps included.

    I haven't tried any clarity caps - but realistically, there isn't anyone out there that could actually consistently identify either of these two brands using equivalent caps in blind listening tests. Go with whichever one is cheaper/easier for you to obtain.

      I have always used Dayton caps in my builds, and been very happy with them. Recently I tried an A/B test with Dayton in one setup, and Clarity Cap CSA in the other. The difference to me was totally apparent. The Clarity's were smoother and more detailed.

          Yeah big difference between Dayton standard caps and Jantzen/CSA - but between Jantzen & CSA in equivalent form - I would challenge anyone to pick them!!
