techie question about capacitors

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by nil, Jan 7, 2002.

  1. Does increasing the value of electrolytic capacitors in the power section of an amp provide any headroom benefit (eg going from 2200uf/100v to 4400uf/100v)?

    Only if that is the absolute bottleneck and about a zillion other parts of the amp are ready and waiting for the new current capacity. :)
