RE: Safety first when playing around with AC power.

Hello, I was reading this with interest as I have been using an array of about (5) 25uf Clarity Pollyprop caps in paralell giving me a total of 125uf across the hot and neutral. These are rated at 600 Volts and my AC is 120 volt. This has produced a nice smoothing of the highs and a reduction of "hashy" sounds. They are soldered together and placed in a shoe box then plugged into the wall outlet. It has been like this for years now with no problems. Am I taking a big risk here? Please let me know.
