Electrocube Audio-Optimised Film Capacitors in both the 916D Series of Metallised Polypropylene Capacitors and the 967D Polypropylene and Foil Audio Capacitors are available at New Yorker Electronics.These audio capacitors are intended for high-end audio applications and are available with tolerances available from ±1 to ±20%, voltages from 100 to 600VDC and frequencies up to 100KHz.

The 916D and 967D series are precision-wrapped and filled, oval/round and epoxy case/hermetically-sealed capacitors that store energy for a number of applications such as AC and pulsing, high surges and high frequency/high current/low ESR.

Made in the USA, they are commonly used by audio engineers because of their high-grade materials, proprietary design and manufacturing processes.

Guitarists also love the Electrocube Electric Guitar & Bass Tone Capacitors and Electrocube Audio Crossover Networks and for the “Eric Clapton/Jimi Hendrix” rock and “B.B. King” blues type sound.

The Electrocube 916D series includes rugged, non-inductively wound metallized audio capacitors. The series offers high frequency operation, high current and low ESR in a miniature package. The 916D is part of a designated line of capacitors, along with the 967, that are specially designed and optimised for high-end audio applications subject to AC and pulsing signals.

Able to handle high surge currents without degrading, it is an excellent replacement for electrolytic capacitors.

Applications for the 916D include audio amplifiers, speakers and musical instruments (i.e., tone and volume control for bass and standard guitars) and other amplifier-capable instruments.

It is rated for 100/67VAC, 200/135VAC, 400/270VAC and 600/440VAC and has customisable insulating sleeves, mountings, special terminals, non-standard leads, circuit connections and other hardware.

The Electrocube 967D series is designed and optimised for high-end audio applications subject to AC and pulsing signals.

It offers high frequency operation, a high current and low ESR. As a result, the 967D series is also able to handle high surge current without degrading. Also like its 916D counterpart, 967D applications include audio amplifiers, speakers and musical instruments.

The high-grade materials, design and manufacturing process used in manufacturing the 967D make it also suitable for DC applications.

Both series feature extended electrode construction and standard tin-coated, oxygen-free solid copper leads. They are housed in a protective clear wrap and Epoxy Resin endfills meet/exceed UL94V0 flammability requirements.

A protective clear wrap offered on all wrap and fill units and tolerances of ±5%, ±10%, ±20% are available.

Epoxy Resin endfills meet or exceed flammability requirements of UL94V0. The devices are RoHs compliant and may be used for frequencies up to 100KHz.

Applications include audio amplifiers, speakers and musical instrument tone and volume control
