Introduction of Mr. SAM BENELBAZ

French, retired, have the hobby of TUBE do it yourself; used to work in IBM as a professional 
of electronics; after that for LASER a company involved in point of sales solutions and hardware maintenance, in that position, he bought a French company sic-safco. 

Mr. SAM BENELBAZ is member of some forums in US and France, some are AUDIOASYLUM.com and DIYAUDIO.com fun withtubes. com and some others.

Original letter from Mr. SAM BENELBAZ

Dear iris,
i hope you are ok. 
I have installed the JFX capacitors last Sunday and i can now give you my impressions.

But first i have to tell you what speakers and amps i used for the test:

The speakers are YAMAHA NS1000M well known in the market and very revealing .
The amps are two american CARY tube amps model 40M using 6SL7 and EL34 tubes.
In this test the EL34 are NOS Philips EL34 of the XF2 series (the best).

The Yamaha crossover was using mainly NICHICON capacitors using metalised paper .
I did replace every capacitor with the ones you send me.
The CDs i use for the test are very good Cds , classic music and jazz mainly.
I know them very well and can hear the differences well. 

Now lets come to the findings:
The JFX have good audio imaging and you can hear obviously more details than with the nichicon .
I think this is because they are wounded very tight.
Congratulations to the worker who did the job.

At this very moment i think that JFX are very good capacitors for cross overs and with their price-sound ratio you can go to the market without any shame.

My best regards

jb Capacitors Dual Run Capacitors

A dual run capacitor supports 2 electric motors, such as in large air conditioner or heat pump units, with both a fan motor and a compressor motor. The dual capacitor has 3 terminals labeled "C", "FAN", and "HERM" for the common, fan, and hermetic compressor connections.

Round dual run capacitors (shaped as round cylinders) are commonly used for air conditioning, to help in the starting of the compressor and the condenser fan motor. Dual capacitors come in a variety of sizes, depending on the capacitance (µF), such as 40 plus 5 µF, and also the voltage. A 440 volt capacitor can be used in place of a 370 volt, but not a 370 in place of a 440 volt. The capacitance must stay the same within 5% of its original value. An oval dual run capacitor could be used instead of a round capacitor, but the mounting strap should be changed to better fit the oval shape.


IEC/EN 60252-1 2001 specifies levels of protection for motor run capacitors
• P0 - no protection
• P1 - fail open circuit or short circuit
• P2 - fail open circuit only 

jb Capacitors Motor Starting Capacitor - JFS

jb A.C motor-start capacitors are electrochemical devices consisting of compactly wound aluminum foil separated by layers of paper, which are impregnated with a conducting electrolyte. Etching of the foil prior to formation and winding increases both the effective foil surface area and the capacitance per unit volume of the finished capacitor. The entire assembly is housed in a case of moisture and oil resistant molded plastic. These capacitors are rated for operation in ambient temperatures from -40°C to +65°C and at a frequency of 50Hz to 60Hz.

These capacitors are designed for motor starting and other intermittent duty AC applications. They are non-polarized and are normally designed with dual quick terminals. These terminals allow for the easy attachment of a bleeder resistor(usually 15K ohm at 2 watt). This saves relay switch contacts and capacitor, particularly in capacitor start-run applications. The quick connect terminals also eliminate the need for soldering.

A motor capacitor, such as a start capacitor or run capacitor, including a dual run capacitor, is an electrical capacitor that alters the current to one or more windings of a single phase AC induction motor to create a rotating magnetic field. It is used in air conditioners, hot tub/jacuzzi spa pumps, or forced air heat furnaces for example. A round dual run capacitor is used in some air conditioner compressor units, to boost both the fan and compressor motors.

jb Tells You What is CBB60 Stands for ?

According to the provisions of China’s national standard GB2470-81, the capacitor named product 
model generally consists of the following four parts:

Part I: The letter represents the name, the meaning of C is a capacitor.
Part II: with letters material.
Part III: numerical classification.
Part IV: The digital serial number.

For example: “CBB60” Capacitor
C – meaning Capacitor
B – meaning the Dielectric is a non-polar organic film
B – meaning the Dielectric material is polypropylene
60 – meaning Plastic can motor run capacitor Broadly applied to starting and running of  AC single-
phase motors at 50/60Hz frequency for AC motor, electric engine, water pump, generator and high 
efficiency compressors of refrigerators etc.
