Capacitor for GSSL Super Sidechain
« on: May 22, 2020, 11:49:37 AM »
Hi, I would like to get the Super Sidechain option for my gssl compressor. I have purchased the pcb and now have to get the parts. Could anyone tell me, what film capacitors to buy? I assume it is ok to go with the capacitors which can be seen on the picture  attached. But which one of them should I buy in terms of the voltage?

Here is the picture of the PCB and the Capacitors I would like to buy:

In that circuit, anything rated higher than 16V will do fine. No audio in there, so no need for fancy dielectrica either.

MKP2 type capacitors will do fine - and so will the MKS2 series for that matter. Just make sure that each one will have space enough to mount them in the board, the width of these series change with value and voltage.

reichelt usually supplies exact mechanical measurements on their range of Wima capacitors
