  1. I can't use any of that stuff because my stuff has to be shiny. If you knock off a dB, you can do polypropylenes and polystyrenes without issue.
  2. The original post was edited, so I don't know what was said, but the GE motor runs are polypropylene, the Aerovox were polyester -- and I believe the capacitors that @thebes ended up using were the Russian PIO. The PIO sound the best to me, but it became a hard sell. I can always thank Bob and Al for convincing everyone that they were terrible and that I was hearing things.
  3. I don’t remember, it’s been too long. Search the archives under DJK. The folks at diyaudio.com will definitely know.
  4. Shouldn’t clearing happen regardless of voltage rating since it’s due to defects in the film. Everyone moving to polyester will keep me busy well into retirement.
  5. They are undoubtedly a little brighter than they were, which will make it seem like there is less bass. You can fix this by moving them closer to the wall or corner. While a bit brighter, it should also sound smoother and more open. You should explore moving to the Type B2 in the future.
  6. Looks like 60/40. It goes through a slushy state while cooling. If the work moves at all, it ends up like that. Can also happen if you blow on it. Use 63/37.
  7. Madisound has some nice ones (Fostex).
  8. Just found this in one of my old trays. I have the matching black one too.
