dna Posted March 18, 2020 Report Share Posted March 18, 2020 I have a pair of 58s speakers, one tweeter is dead and when the tweeter from the other speaker is connected to the first there is no sound. I was told this could be a capacitor, or I'm thinking one of those mysterious coils in the cross over. The capacitors are axial electrolytic. They have the values as follows: All are 50V bi-polar, all are mfd. 4, 8, 24, 40, 100 I don't know if it's true but I was told that when running capacitors in series the value of each increases the capacitance factor by it's rating. For example 3 mfd wired in series with another 3mfd gives you 6mfd. I'm assuming that so long as the voltage is the same for each capacitor that factor doesn't change. If this is true I could put a few together to get the proper capacitance yes? Maybe some one here knows where I can get the correct capacitors, all the ones I find on the internet are not the same size physically (does that make a difference?) but as I just need 2 of each some sellers on E-bay offer one of the ones cited but you got to buy a whole lot of them. I have tried Amazon, E-bay, and Google too. Of course, I get hits for everything but the thing I asked for.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
