Default Sourcing Replacement Capacitors

I hope someone will be able to help - I am repairing a Peavey PowerAmp CS800x and need to find replacement smoothing capacitors:
The specs on the ones that are in it at the moment as as follows:

15000uf -20 + 20%
90VDC 110 Surge
85c Max Ambient
362 9702 56699

They are M5 screw terminals type with a height of 67mm and a diameter of 65mm.

I have found similar spec caps online but they are too tall to fit in the amp case.

Does anyone know of where I might source them (peavey have them but at around 40 each) I am looking for a cheaper alternative.

Hope someone can help

Many Thanks

Hi, It looks like this Philips capacitor at 15KuF @90V and
67mm in height is a custom made one and those in the catalogs are
tall at over 100mm and 100V and not cheap also.I suggest you tell
that person to bite the bullet and pay the price to make your life easier
unless you want to parallel them and look messy which will cost more for
2 caps. Singa

Thanks for the info - I suspected as much to be honest.

I will order the direct replacements from Peavey directly then.

Thanks anyway
