How fast are these Mepco Caps? I can get the 35kuF -10% 40VDC 60V surge 85C for about $8 each, would these be good for any Pass project or is the volt rating too low? Also, which form factor is superior for a low ESR, tall or fat? My guess is tall but fitting them in a case becomes a problem. I am looking for a definitive answer so anyone who knows how these caps will work in a Pass class A power supply, speak up.

The Aelph 5 is powered by a 28 VAC CT transformer. To calculate DCV RMS would go like so.

(28x2)x.7 = 39.2 VDC Assuming Line = 115 VAC

The aelph 3 is powered by 21 VAC CT Transformer, Hence
(21x2)c.7 = 29.4 VDC Assuming Line = 115 VAC

Though the Mepco caps are probably safe for both Amps the Aelph 3 would be your safest bet.

These are old caps and I am not sure how fast they are, as for ESR, these Caps are about the same hieght as the larger caps but it is very narrow in Diameter. I prefer the smaller foot print these Caps offer as well as their responce to line fluctuations. if your on a budget, you take wht you can get.

How you like those? Only $1.5 ea. Smaller caps are apparently better sounding.

I saw some 3,300 uF 63 VDC caps, that look exactly like yours Hpotter $1.25 ea. I was thinking of putting 50 together as a Capacitor bank.

I was thinking of making a PCB to mount them all on.
