I just received the standard 3875 kit and see that there are 4 1500uf caps and was wondering what are these for. In the schematics for the board, it does not show any capacitors but in the board there are 2 spots to mount capacitors, do i install 2 1500uf caps in there. I am lost. Thanks.

According to the 3875 data sheet, there is a cs cap on pin1 and pin 4. Is this how the schematics should be.

The schematic shows signal path only, the big caps are part of the power supply filtering and should be mounted on amp board as well.
