Re: Calculating unequal cap strings.

Ok, this is going to make this confusing, cause I'm the "other" Jonathon, 
but... :-) 

I am still trying to decide on an MMC, 
I've got a 12/60, and the peak voltage is about 17,000 V so I'll need 9 of 
the CD caps. 
now, LTR is about .025uf. Nine of the .15 caps would be .0167uf which is too 
low.  Going for the best capacitance for lowest cost, how would 2 * 9 of the 
.1 uf sound for .022uf at $32.40? 

Then I had another idea. could you have one string of the .1's and another 
string of the .15's? It would be .0278uf at $36.45..... can you mix the 

Confused as always,
