Pull the cap and measure the voltage across the pads when it's powered up. Is it higher than 16v?

Also check the polarity on the pads to make sure that the capacitor is being installed properly.

Are you sure the original cap wasn't rated for 50v?

Does the amp work properly without the capacitor?

Can you send me a few photos of the amp board and the location of the cap so I can see if I have any information on it or a similar amp?

Pin 8 should have approximately positive 15v (13.8 is close enough). Pin 4 should have approximately negative 15v.

Determine why pin 4 doesn't have negative 15v.
