X1/Y2 Safety Recognized Ceramic Disc Capacitors are specifically made for high voltage AC (alternating current) applications. X1Y2 safety capacitors are versatile and can safely be used as both "line bypass / line to ground" and "accross-the-line" capacitors". These line rated (AC-rated) capacitors meet the safety requirements of safety standard organizations world-wide. Back When your vintage tube radios/hi-fi/amps/TV's were manufactured, X1/Y2 safety capacitors had not been invented. To IMPROVE the RELIABILITY your tube electronics (and for the safety of your family and home), replace your old/original paper/wax line filter capacitors with new safety approved capacitors.
