Default Capacitors for Cross-Overs

Hello friends

I want to upgrade the cap in a pair of Michaura M665 towers ( I like 'em. ) - better caps at the same value. So, the caps are 6.8uf/100V.

I've corresponded with the good folks at diyhifi who were kind enough to recommend the Obbligato cap (6.8/600V).

So, here's the silly question from an electro-dolt, is there any disadvantage to using a cap with a 6x higher voltage rating than OEM?

Hope a wise person will take a minute to respond.

Especially when it comes to Loudspeaker crossovers (the higher the better).

Obbligato will do fine.Just need more listening hours to break-in.
