Jantzen Compact MKT Metalized 5% Polyester Film Capacitors

The Compact MKT capacitors are made with the highest quality metalized polyester film possible. Jantzen has been able to make them smaller in size and with better sonic properties compared to “plain/smooth foil” electrolytic capacitors. With a voltage rating of 160 volts DC, they are also more versatile to use than electrolytic capacitors, usually only rated at either 63 volts DC or 100 volts DC.

Due to their rounded square shape (flat top and bottom surface), they can be easily stacked when it is necessary to couple multiple capacitors in parallel to reach a higher capacity value for a certain crossover position. As they are stackable, they will take up significantly less space, when compared to round-shaped equivalent values of plain/smooth foil electrolytic, MKT or PP foil capacitors that will need to be mounted side by side.
