After noticing that the high-end was missing in a pair of bookshelves I picked up used and had stored until now, I discovered that the tweeter hasn't failed but instead the capacitor wire is severed. One end of the cap is soldered to a lead that connects to the binding post, and the other end of the cap is soldered to a lead that connects to the tweeter's terminal. The circuit is broken on the part of the cap that looks like soldering flux. Literally it is sliced in two parts. How do I know what size cap to use for replacement w/o sending it to Polk? I don't want to pay the manufacturer an exhorbant cost for a simple repair that I can do myself. The system is Polk Audio R10.
