An improved electrical filter connector comprises a capacitor sub-assembly including an insulative substrate, a plurality of capacitors soldered thereto and a ground spring. The ground spring is soldered to the ground terminations of the capacitors, the ground spring having a resilient portion for electrical engagement with conductive ground traces on a system circuit board. First terminations of the capacitors are electrically individually connected to respective contacts of the electrical connector. Second capacitor terminations are electrically connected to the ground strip. The capacitors are preferably of the discrete, monolithic chip type, having a dielectric body spaced between the electrical terminations thereof. A quantity of curable dielectric material is disposed on the dielectric bodies between each of the capacitor terminations to provide an enhanced dielectric medium to increase the capability of the connectors to withstand higher voltages during power surges.
