Happy for you

Nice that it worked so well, and nice of you to share the results with us. Part of what you are hearing (clarity, dynamics) is due to the cap, but another part is probably due to reducing low freq's where they're not wanted. One quick experiment you should consider is playing some music or test freq's without the bass amp, just so you get an idea of how low your mids are going. It's always comforting to hear reality enforcing theory.

I strongly recommend taking a long pause before making any other mods. Let this mod settle down before you make an evaluation. Listen to lots of music and get to know it again. The sound will definitely change. I know the temptation to "fix" everything is strong. More of a good thing is sometimes too much, and too many of any one type of component will impart a definite voice to your system, and then you'll be lost without a reference.

There are better caps, although perhaps not better value. Anyone who says metalized caps sound better than true film and foil probably does not have a legitimate range of experience, and copper ALWAYS sounds better than aluminum.
