I have ordered boards very similar to the ones posted here (I thickened the power tracks, etc). I also ordered a speaker protection kit from eBay with the following schematic: http://s700.photobucket.com/albums/w...t=SP0419-1.png

My question is, it appears that C3, C3' and C5, C5' are pairs of electrolytics placed in opposite polarity. Would it be better for me to just use a bipolar electrolytic in place of C3 and C5 and use a wire in place of C3' and C5'?

Electrons are yellow and more is better!

This is not a good way because the servo can be extremely overdriven. It's better to have diodes between the inputs.

You have very thing power lines but it may not be a problem if the amp will go in light duty but for carrying 10 A peak it's not much.

My take with 95 um (2.5 oz.) copper

No!

Yeah, I realized the power (and ground) tracks were too small, and made them much wider before I ordered the prototypes.

So, why is it a bad idea to replace those two electrolytics with a non-polar one? I've read that it's questionable to use two electrolytics reversed like that.

We only need to ensure that the signal does not appear above or below servo opamp PSU voltage on his input. It is clear that will not appear at the + input which is earthed.

The caps aren't reversed in any way. This is a very normal application for such parts.
