Here is another tweak to try. I see from your detailed photo that the caps are supported by their leads. They are stout and strong enough to hold them up, but they are not rigid enough to immobilize them. Caps are sensitive to vibration, even inside an enclosure, and should be secured and damped. Put something under or around them to damp vibration: any foam or piece of insulation will work, or just a piece of heavy tape stuck to them. It will probably improve clarity, even though it might seem at first to dull the sound somewhat. That's a good thing: you're not really hearing detail, but distortion caused by vibration. You might be able to hear further INTO the music, instead of just a surface brightness.
