    Sutton, Read Joe's post on forming PS caps in the PLWO section and use 1,000 - 2000uf per 10 volts of rail voltage and you should not have any problems.

    Thnks Skratch, I'll re-read it. I got most of it, but I couldn't fully understand it. A little over my head...Is it imperative the caps be "formed" prior to useage, or will they eventually "form" from useage? Maybe you make sure the first time you power the amp with the new caps you leave the amp 'ON" for a full 24 hours or something, but, as I said, it's all way above my paygrade...

    Sutton, you already had to send back one example of questionable caps, does 30-40 dollars saved really make that much difference? When you're cleaning up the mess I can tell ya NO!!

    They will eventually form on their own. What Joe is trying to get us to do is to put them in service with known and consistent characteristics, which directly affects service life, and we know how he is about that.
