Recommendation input cap.
 
Since I do not have to much space inside my amp, I have to choose one of these caps for the inputs. I am not so sure which one to use. any recommendations are welcome.

A) Mundorf MKP 250v 5%
B) Wima MKP 400v 10%

What about the Clarity Cap from the ESA range?

250vdc

+/- 3%

ClarityCap ESA range of capacitors home page

Will these fit?

Thanks data! it looks good, but it is 30x45mm and the Mundorf is 19x28mm

So 10uf?

And won't fit?

Hard when space is limited so much, I would have a hard time picking between the Mundorf and the Wima, I would lean towards the Mundorf but would need to try both for an extended time.
I'll let yo know If I think of a smaller cap that is good...

I guess 35x20 is cutting it close too?

What capacitance value do you need? And why such a high voltage rating?

Well, I just need around 100v 4.7uf. the original was Panasonic FC 4.7uf 50v.

Check that page on the Clarity Caps ESA again, the size for 250v 4.7uf is 23mm x 33mm

Towards the bottom.

I used 2.2uf in these for the DC blocking caps in a Pioneer A400 and they are quite nice.
