In that uF size, with screw terminals, likely have to pick 50Vdc ones.
Go for CGS types (Computer Grade special, Screw me)
They're actually the same Mallory CGS's, which Poah used in his Dark&Hairy days.

I know I'm waaay late to this party, but I too have a Forte (Model 3) that I've replaced the PS caps and the 2 yellow film caps. That's all. It was dead quiet before the change, now there's a slight buzz on the left channel. I'm not a pro, but did check solder points and everthing seems solid. I can't figure out why it's buzzing? It also buzzes without any inputs hooked up, so it shouldn't be a ground loop issue. As I noted, the buzz is barely there and the amp sounds great, but it's driving me nuts. Any insights? Thanks.
