Default where to get 68uf. Black Gate caps for bypass use

I have replaced the Jamicon 6800uf. 80v. 80 degree c. with two Panasonic THSA 6800uf. 80v. 105 degree c. PS caps. The caps are in a Parasound model 2125 two channel power amp. I was told on Audio Asylum, that I could improve the mid bass performance of the amp by putting 68uf. Black Gate caps in parallel with the new main PS. caps. would it be of any benefit to also, bypass again with some small, .01-.1uf. film and foil or, other type caps while I'm doing the job. Also, I am on a tight budget and (if possible) I'd like to find the Black Gates for between $10-15.00 each. Any one know where is a good place I could order these caps from in these values? open to all suggestions! Thanks!
