Placement of styrene caps on 4-pole Mission filter board
  • Just wanted some quick advice about placing the styrene caps on the 4-pole Mission filter board. There are three holes and 2 leads, so how do y’all usually place these? I checked the photos but still couldn’t see for sure.

    Thanks

  • It depends on the size of the ones you use, the footprint is there so you can use anything. The main thing with those is to watch the temperature, they melt SUPER easy so solder them in as quickly as possible

  • Outer two for large capacitors or the two pins within the smaller square.

  • At least one pin must be inserted in the “inner” hole – the one close to the IC socket. Whether the second pin is in the middle hole or the outer one is up to you. It depends on the size of the caps you use…

  • Perfect, thanks! Almost time to test the filter board.
