The Jantzen Audio Alumen Z-Cap offers unparalleled performance for the tweeter and midrange section of crossovers.
The performance is very close to the (Discontinued) SilverGold Z-cap, but with slightly less brightness and a little more natural top end balance.
Non inductive construction. Extremely low ESR and ESL.
Pure aluminium foil with PP dielectric insulation.
PCOCC - Oxygen free copper leads.
100Vdc 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, and
Alumen 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.
