Default I need big caps!

Anyone have some big caps for a big power amp to sell? Need 4 or 8 of something over 40,000 uF rated for 63V at least. Please include dimensions. You can post here or email me off line. Would rather not get old caps that need to be reformed.

I've searched and cannot find any of these at a reasonable price, have checked apexjr and the usual suspects. Any links would also be appreciated.

- thanks.

what's reasonable ?

you can get the Panasonic THA's but they are only rated to 50V -- about $12 each. They are surprisingly compact.

the Panasonic TUP's are rated to 63V, but only go up to 22mF.

Default those sound reasonable

By reasonable, I mean the prices at apexjr, or even the prices you mention. You see the magnitude of my problem, even the ones you suggest I cannot use, the 50V rating of THA's is too low and 22mF is way to low of a capacitance.

I have some large size caps (used) 12 of one type and 8 of another type. I don't know the ratings or voltages. I check them out tonight.

Default WOW!

Wow! Those are very impressive! Sorry that I can't use them, I need lower VDC and higher uF..... But when I start making some tube stuff those will be very nice!

mrlots2do, what would you want for your caps if you were so inclined to sell them? I have several high power pulse forming networks that could use them.
