    Question Sound difference between 250v and 400v caps.

    In researching upgrading my LSiC - it appears I have all 100v caps in the crossover. For the bass circut, I was planning to use solen caps. I was going to use 2 x 130uf caps to replace the existing 260uf and 1 x 18uf to replace the existing 18uf.

    My question is, they are both offered in a 250v and 400v capacity for approximately the same price. The 400v is larger, but I was wondering if there are any sonic differences between the two. (250v vs 400v)

    Even the 250v is 2.5x the rating of the 100v that is in there, so I should not need it from a wattage perspective. Just wondering if they sound any different. Since they are different sizes, I would not expect them to sound the same, but you never know.

    Thanks everyone.
