The Alumen Z-Cap is the newest adition to the Jantzen Audio line of Capacitors.
The Alumen Z-Cap has been especially designed for the tweeter and mid-section of your crossovers.
The improved transparency performance of this new cap is on the same high level as our SilverGold Z-Cap, but with a slightly softer tonal presence and less brightness / sheene / glare in comparison.
The Alumen Z-Cap will offer a more “neutral” presentation in the overall sound in certain crossover designs, and by “neutral” we refer to the focus will be shifted from what can be a somewhat overemphasized brightness from a Super PP cap, being replaced with a more even balance between the depth of the midrange and the presence of the tweeter.
Jantzen use a high tension machine to wind all their capacitors, thus producing very tightly wound capacitors. As a result they offer incredibly low inner vibration and keep micophony as low as possible. They have a tolerance of 3% and have high grade copper leadouts. The finish is a flame-retardant tape wrap, and the end of the caps are resin sealed to protect against humidity. Another key feature is, they do not need pre-aging, so no lengthy burn-in required.
All Jantzen Z-caps and Cross-Caps are non-polarized; so do not have a specific installation direction.
