Gretsch 6162 Speaker Cap Question

1

Does anyone know what crossover capacitor to use for the tweeter in a '58 6162 Dual Twin? I think it's a 25mfd/25v, but should it be an electrolytic or what?

The schematic shows a 25uF/25v electrolytic with the + polarity toward the main speakers.

Nice amp. Original Rolas?

This 1962 model 6161 uses a 22uF cap in series with a 33 ohm resistor.

Thanks for the cap info. The ellipticals are the original Rolas. I had them re-coned several years ago, but an owner before me replaced the tweeter. It looks vintage, but just not right. I knew there was supposed to be a cap there, but it's gone now.
