Soup can capacitors, any issues

Post by Daniel Quinn » Tue Mar 17, 2020 3:22 pm

I acquired some caps. They are 33000uf 63v. Only thing is they are large. As big as soup cans. Apart from size is there any reason why the can't be used in a power amp power supply.

Absolutely none. The large size may indicate that they are low ESR and have high ripple current capacity.
Resistance isn't futile it's V / I.
