RE: Metallized caps where space is tight?

There are actually quite a few options out there. First,can I ask you what kinds of amp and the value of cap that you need? The reason I ask is this. The Golden SE-40 is a circuit board amp that used .22uf Wima caps. I replaced them with .1uf 400v K40Y-9 caps and I lost no bass whatsoever that you could hear.That is because the corner freq was 8hz vs 6hz which had no effect that you would feel or hear.This is also the value that Sonic Craft used in their upgrade kits..

Speaking of which,the SonicCap Gen 2 are a metallized poly that are very good as well and they fit in several places.The Solen Film and Tin foil are a wonderful cap that is made with a smaller profile,but it is much heavier due to winding techniques.
