Default 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%

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.
