The Alumen Z-Cap (pure aluminium foil capacitors) was especially designed for the tweeter and mid-section of crossovers for passive hi-fi speakers.
- Ultra-thin dielectric insulation to eliminate memory effect in the capacitor
- An extremely fast reacting capacitor
- High quality pure aluminium foil wound with highly specialised machinery and precision winding techniques
- Specifically designed for the tweeter and mid-range section of passive crossovers
- Can also be used as coupling capacitors for transistor amplifiers

The improved transparency performance of this new cap is on the same high level as Jantzen Silver/Gold Z-Cap, but with a slightly softer tonal presence and less brightness / sheen / glare in comparison. The Alumen Z-Cap will offer a more “neutral” presentation in the overall sound in certain crossover designs. By “neutral” Jantzen refers to the fact that the focus will be shifted from what can be a somewhat overemphasized brightness from a Super PP cap, to a more even balancing between the depth of the midrange and the presence of the tweeter.
It utilises a much thinner dielectric insulation compared to the market standard. A high voltage rating is not needed for application related to passive loudspeaker crossovers. The usage of a thinner dielectric insulator allows for a capacitor with less “memory” and one that is much faster reacting. The Alumen Z-Cap offers unparalleled value for money in terms of cost versus performance. Compared to the Superior capacitors, the Alumen Z-Cap will bring less brightness and a little more natural top end balance to your system. Ideal for audio aficionados who prefer a slightly less bright system, while also hearing improvements in the overall naturalness/neutrality of the system as a whole.
