capacitors for amplifiers, which contain a plus- and a minus pole. They are not for crossovers but for tube or transistor amplifiers and power supplies.

The MKT capacitor's dielectric medium is polyester foil. For high-end applications MKP and tin foil capacitors are used, employing polypropylene as dielectric medium. In this case you should have a look at Mundorf MCap Supreme, Supreme Silver/Gold and Clarity Cap PWA, PX, Clarity Cap SA, ESA, MR or even DTAC.
