RDF Polypropylene and Foil Audio Capacitors (Red Drop Epoxy Dip)

Audio-optimized Film Capacitors

The Electrocube audio capacitor RDF Red Drop series includes rugged, non-inductively wound film and foil audio capacitors. Manufactured with proprietary techniques, it offers high frequency operation, high current and low ESR in a miniature rugged package ideal for handling durability. As a result, the RDF capacitor series is able to handle high surge currents without degrading. Audio engineers prefer the RDF series as part of a designated line of audio capacitors specially designed and optimized for high-end audio applications subject to AC and pulsing signals. With high-grade materials, design and manufacturing, these extended foil audio capacitors handle greater current capability, putting them among the best electronics for classic sound on guitars and bass tone in professional, commercial stage and studio use.
