Looking for a place to buy new capacitors for some Model Fives.

I would usually go to Parts express, but I think when I last checked a few days ago 1 or 2 of the values were out of stock from the Dayton line. Is there another website that carries the Dayton 5% grade caps other than PE.com? Thanks!

 

Edited: Its the 16uF capacitor that I cannot find in Dayton. I found it in the Solen brand, would it be acceptable to mix and match manufactures? Or should I get a 15uf 1% Dayton instead? I planned on going with 5% Daytons... I doubt mixing 1% and 5% Daytons would pose any difference other than accuracy of uF rating ( no perceived sound difference )

You could parallel a 1uF and 15uF Dayton. Or get the Solen. Doesn’t matter IMHO

There is absolutely no problem with mixing those manufacturers and tolerances, and as Kent mentioned, you can always parallel capacitors to make the desired value.

You could also use non-polar electrolytic (NPE) caps for the larger values. It is isn't easy to fit larger caps on the KLH 5 crossover board.
