NOne of te datasheets show ESR ratings, that i can see, so ripple current is all that is left. I guess only difference between Silmics and Nichicon is the paper used. Silmics seem to haev an advantage in this area. I would get both, but i cannot afford it. Also, Do i need 15000uF or can I use less without any detriment? I have FR drivers that are 7ohm.
Your question is difficult to unswer from purely technical ground, it more relates to believes and empirical experience. As for my vision, use 15-20 pcs of 1000uF Elna Silmics, it is a tested solution, plus 50-100uF polypropylene shunt cap (or a pair of smaller caps, like 33uF).
