um...i gotto go into town tommorrow and i figured since i'll be there it would be the best time to buy some caps for my tweets...what caps do i have to buy???
I dont think that all the caps are the same...the tweets are 50wrms...i have two of them...and i have one 70wrms tweet...
i thing they are all 4 or 8 ohms...im sure that the 50wrms ones are 4ohms but the other i dont know because the label was torn off...

what caps do i have to get???

You did not give enough info to answer that quesiton.

Need to know:

1) The impedance of your tweeter

2) The crossover frequency you are using

3) The "order" of crossover you are using. Is this a cap only (1st order highpass)? Or are you replacing something in an existing passive network?


Once you find out those 3 things, here is a calculator that will tell you what you need: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/crosscalc.asp
