    First let me appoligize for such a newbie question. Does it make a diference if I use an air core or iron core inductor?

    Likewise, is there a preference material for the cap; mylar, metalized polypropylene, film/foil, etc...

    Iron cores should probably only be considered if you are going to pack them tight in a small space.

    "Likewise, is there a preference material for the cap; mylar, metalized polypropylene, film/foil, etc..."

    The old JBL ring radiators loathe passive components in front of them anyway so it would probably behoove you to use the "best" components you can find. Try a high quality film & foil.
