Upgrading caps in passive and impedance boards
« on: July 26, 2020, 09:45:45 AM »
Hi,
I was thinking of changing out the caps in the passive and impedance boards.
Can I switch out the stock 4.7 250V with 4.7 100V's?
Thanks again,
Philip

Sure, 100V is an adequate voltage rating.

PB - is there much benefit in upgrading the caps (in your opinion)?
