The Jantzen Audio Amber Z-Cap is a super high-end pure copper foil capacitor.
Specifically designed for the tweeter and mid-range section of passive crossovers.
Although due to the price-point, Alumen Z-Caps will often be a better choice for midrange applications.
The Amber Z-Cap builds on the same design principles of our already critically acclaimed Alumen Z-Caps.
Compared to the Alumen Z-Caps, the Amber Z-Cap will offer an even more neutral or natural presentation in the overall sound.
This is paired with the enhancements in transparency and detail richness on an even higher level compared metalized polypropylene capacitors.
99.99% purity cold-rolled copper foil wound with highly specialised machinery and precision winding techniques, Terminated with pure PCOCC grade copper leads.
The specialized winding technique and overall quality of this capacitor enables us to offer a high-end product with a lot less distortion compared to the market standard.
Ultra thin Polypropylene dielectric insulation to eliminate memory effect in the capacitor.
An extremely fast reacting capacitor ‣ Non inductive, Very low ESR, SEL, and electric absorption data with a Dissipation factor of 0.0001
200Vdc - Tolerance 3%
Jantzen Capacitors and Foil / Signal direction.
All Jantzen crossover capacitors are non-polarised. This means they can be wired in either direction without any harm.
Some believe that capacitors do exhibit improved sonic character when the signal enters the end with the inner foil.
For the Superior, Silver, Alumen and Amber Z-Caps the inner foil end is always to the left (When reading left to right).
So the signal 'in' would be from the left (inner foil), and 'out' would be to right (outer foil).
For the Cross-caps and Standard Z-caps the inner and outer foil changes from production batch to production batch.
So without individual testing there is no way to know which is the 'in' or 'out' lead.
