Unfortunatly, this AR LST has big caps that ar very old, here are
the values. I mainly need the 2500 mf, the others are no problem.

2500 60V NP 20%
150 50V NP 10%
40 50V NP 10%

I would use two 4700F back-to-back.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, I would parallel the combination with a film cap, or even consider battery bias (since there are two caps anyway).

Yes I think it involves a standard 9V batt., and I guess it does work,
but this is not my speaker (AR LST....old) so won't be doing that.

Then I would just use the pair of 4700F/100V back-to-back with a 10F film bypass.
