Default Crossover Guru's I Need Help

(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

Yes it's a film cap and yes you can replace it with another type and no it won't degrade the sound. Poly metal is actually an "upgrade".
