there is usually a good selection of caps in that range. If no CD, Nichicon and Panasonic are very good as well.
I haven't looked extensively yet. I see 100uF/400v caps on CD's website in a couple different varieties, but haven't easily found a retailer for them at this point. I'm wondering if Joe Fratus selected this lesser-known cap for a particular reason, or whether they were just easily available to him and priced how he wanted. Don't have a schematic, or I'd be asking for some advice on what would be best to use. :)
Good to know the Panasonics and Nichicons are good to use...I haven't bought any electrolytics since some Black Gates 20 years ago.
I can't speak to what the designer was thinking but I tend to use caps that i like sonically and that are readily available. But, you can use caps of higher voltage as a sub with no down side. Also, electrolytic caps have advanced in design since the time when your amp was built and especially when the caps in your amp were manufactured.
