Default UF capacitor for tweeter...

Currently running a passive setup and plan to go active off my Eclipse CD7000 head unit. Which UF capacitor should I purchase for a 4 ohm 20MM silk dome tweeter that has a FS of 1830hz? I ran into this site: Car audio - Speaker Crossover Chart and Capacitance vs. Frequency Calculator(High-pass) as I was searching, but afraid to purchase the wrong UF capacitor from Partsexpress. I have no idea where I plan to crossover the tweeter, but I want to be on the safe side without causing any issues. I've read that some UF capacitors can cause phaze and that I have to consider resistance or something when I choose a UF Capacitor. Feedback would be great, thanks.

Humph umph tsk tsk hump umph tsk

Default Re: UF capacitor for tweeter...

I was told that a good rule of thumb is to go 1/3 over the FS of the tweeter. So, for a 4 ohm tweeter with an FS of 1830hz, i'll need a 2,440 capacitor which means that i'm stuck with either a 17 @ 4 ohm's = 2338.24 and a UF capacitor of 16 @ 4 ohm's = 2484.38. So, should i go with the 16 UF capacitor or the 17? These reading are from this link: Car audio - Speaker Crossover Chart and Capacitance vs. Frequency Calculator(High-pass) I also read that many use a 21 @ 4 ohm UF capacitor which is 1892.86 @ 4 ohm What are the pro's and con's with these 3 types (16, 17 and 21) UF capacitors? Thanks
