(This is related to the crossover not the home speakers so please dont move thread)
I picked up a pair or Mirage OM-9's for one heck of a deal but one of the High frequency channels does not work.
I pulled and metered the drivers and they checked out, and the Wire
to the crossovers checked out.
I believe I narrowed it down to this component which I believe is a Metallized Polyester Film Capacitor rated at 1uF/5%/100V.
Problem is I cannot find a replacement that doesnt have some other letters like CBB, CBB2 or is not the same size.
I was told I could replace it with a regular Metallized Polypropylene Cap (Parts Express said so) like the Solen or Dayton Caps.
I am confused though because on the crossovers there are other 'normal' caps too and they did this for a reason and I am afraid the change may negatively alter the sound characteristics.
So my questions are....
#1 is this a Metallized Polyester Film Capacitor
#2 is it rated at 1uF/5%/100V
#3 can I replace it with a Metalized Polypropylene Foil Crossover Capacitor (will replace other one in other crossover too)
#4 what do you think will happen with sound
Also here are pics of said component and crossover
