    Default capacitor's for Monitor 7A help needed

    Ok, I have a friend helping me replace a burned up capacitor in the pair of Monitor 7A's. and I have no idea what to purchase.. the old one has tons of numbers that don't mean anything to me.. and I can't seem to find anything that matches it online.

    I've gone to partsexpress, but since I don't know what i'm looking for other then A capacitor, i have no idea what to order.

    any help would be great. I know several people in here have replaced the capacitor's and more in their crossovers.

    the cap is about and inch long and blue.. with the following numbers that don't mean anything to me.. maybe someone will be familar with what a replacement part number might be.

    TSi 7802
    pxc34 LP50
    34uF
    50v

    if i read it right.

    or is the entire crossover still available from Polk? (i kind of doubt) but you never know.

    I'll have to check to be sure,, but ,I think that it's a 34uF cap, if you buy solen,,be prepared for a cap about 4 times the size of the original,you should be able to find a schem if you look in the troublshooting section. Good luck

    7a's have 1 12uF cap and 1 34uF cap, which can be replaced with Solen's 12uF and 33uF. An upgrade worth doing. While your in there replace the resistors with Mills, also from PE.

    12uF:

    33uF:

    Mills resistors.

    4.5ohm for tweeter and 2.5ohm for midbass, but check to be sure:

    ok.. i ordered some caps from Partsexpress... and once i was ready to pay for them in the shopping cart it says they are out of stock.. that was like 2 weeks ago.. so i waited till after May 29th when they said they'd have more in.. well today i order the parts I need.. and they are still out of stock.

    this is bugging me.. is there any other place on the internet where a person can buy the same. Solen caps as the ones Parts sells?

    DB,

    Try Partsconnexion.com They have Solens. Scroll the tabs on the bottom of the screen until you find the Solen tab. Good luck with the Monitor 7's!
