Default AVX polypropylene film caps

I've been given two AVX FFB5410206k, 20mf, 400V caps. Are these useful as audio output caps?

Thanks for your help.

I think so, and if they are really mF instead of uF, then you will
get a terrific price for them on Ebay.

I think they're uF, but still a good value. I've been latching on to the "Unlytic" film caps from various sources on Ebay. These are film caps that look for all the world like bog-standard computer electrolytic caps, but boast vanishingly low ESR and hilariously high ripple current ratings. Electronic Concepts I believe was one of the first companies to come out with them, but other cap companies are chiming in with similar products. Just the filter you need for that monster tube amp, and they don't dry out, either.
