I'm full swing into building my A/V-3S center channel speaker and will be assembling the crossover tonight. While looking at the Sonicap capacitors that came with the kit, I can not tell the polarity of either end. Doesn't capacitors have polar ends (+ / -)? If so, what are the identifying marks on the sonicaps? If not, just call me a dufus. Posted Image

Some caps have to be wired with a specific polarity but not all of them. The Sonicaps can be wired either way so don't worry about it.

If you drive up to Cocoa Beach and buy me a new Ron Jon's shirt I won't call you a dufus! Posted Image
