New Yorker Electronics announced News Series of Combination Film Capacitors from Electrocube

The 917D and 967D Audio Capacitors Handle High Surge Currents without Degrading


September 4, 2019 – New Yorker Electronics rolls out new Electrocube Audio-Optimized Film Capacitors in both the 916D Series of Metallized Polypropylene Capacitors and the 967D Polypropylene and Foil Audio Capacitors. 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.

Audio capacitor design manufacturer Electrocube of offers a full line of audio-optimized film capacitors specially designed and optimized for the high-end audio industry including professional, commercial, stage and studio applications.

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.

916D Metallized Polypropylene Capacitors
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 optimized 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 customizable insulating sleeves, mountings, special terminals, non-standard leads, circuit connections and other hardware.

967D Polypropylene and Foil Audio Capacitors
The Electrocube 967D series is designed and optimized 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.

Electrocube offers a complete audio line of capacitors, both custom capacitors and foil, in modern and retro series. As a global franchise distributor, New Yorker Electronics supplies the full line of Electrocube products including its full inventory of film capacitors, resistor capacitor (RC) Networks, EMI Filters and high frequency transformers.
