Default Does anyone know where I can get this size of audio capacitor?

7500uF or higher, 56V or higher.
Case size diameter 30mm or smaller, Height - not important

to replace 7500 56V caps in my amplifier 20+ years old!

Somewhere like Farnell or Radiospares would be the places I would start looking.

All these three are 35mm in Diameter, is that close enough ?

Buy 8200uF 63V online from RS Components

If you go down to 6800uF 63V you can get them at 25mm Diameter.

Bearing in mind the huge tolerances of Electrolytic caps, 6800uF may be OK.

Thanks anyway but needs to be 30mm or less, as otherwise they won't fit

Where they used?
Mundorf have MLGO63-10000uF (63V), they sized d=30mm and height =50mm: Electrolytic capacitor Mundorf MLytic AG glue on 10000 uF 63VDC 125C 2pin - Fidelity Components Shop

But check specifications if they can provide current you need.

Thanks anyway but after a long search I finally found some. They're for a kenwood KA-4020 Amp.

Cheers
