Another reason for wax is that it provides superior damping. Caps can be surprisingly microphonic.

Some people are buying those Russian Teflon Caps and improving them by embedding them in wax.

I have had good luck damping my DIY speaker cables and ICs with beeswax.

One problem with wax is that it can melt, or be degraded quicker, in a hot audio chassis. That is obviously not a problem for speaker crossovers. Jupiter is supposedly coming out with a high-temp version of their product.
