Does the one in your schematic say 0.1 microfarads? That is, 1/10th of one microfarad? I'm looking at several at RadioShack that match that:Originally Posted by alimh
They come in a variety of voltage and percentage ratings. As I understand it. The voltage rating only matters as a limit of the voltage I could run into given capacitor. That is, I'm putting my cap in a 5V-ish circuit so it'll always have 5V at it's terminals.
Also, there are smaller value capacitors, should I use those on the theory that even the smallest value will block DC and a lesser value will have a less chance of blocking the AC audio signal? Any other advice on the various types? (longer leads, etc.) ?
