    caps for my tweets

    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???



    Bought from: IS_250, nismos14, chaunb3400, tweet02, dadon, IonSQL, lslugz, dye4metal, RetroAudioinc

    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
