Black Gate capacitors are merely the best electrolytic audio capacitors ever made!
 
     
 
 
  This series is similar to the K series except the N series is non-polarized.  Further, the NX is higher Q and improved over the N.  No other electrolytic cap made compares to this series! This series is considered by many to be the very best Black Gates made.

  This series is for use with speakers (bi-polar).  They exhibit are warm and rich sound with all the detail.  There is no substitute where space is an issue. The AC series, as with all Blackgates, exceed the performance of many film caps.

*this cap is labeled 15µF but it measures ~18µF
 
     
     
 
 
  This series is the top performance DC model.  Extremely low noise and excellent tone. Please note that the "F" caps found in other places on the net are known to be 20+ years old. We declined an offer to buy them based mainly on their age, but also the fact that the "FK" is far superior.

  This is the higher DC voltage series of the FK.  They are very conducive to tube-amp power supplies.  Both parts below are duplex units. This is an excellent cap.

  This series is non-polarized with extended voltages. These allow pre-rectification filtering of AC.  Great symmetry for DC filtering. Excellent all around cap where ever it is used!
