I noticed a problem when looking for capacitors for my Henry 2KD Classic amp. The cost was very high and allot of what i found had been sitting on the shelves for long periods of time.
The light bulb came on.... why not special order them. The original ones in my amp were 190uf/450v. That is the value in allot of the older amps that are due for a tune-up.
Why not give the power supply what it needs a liitle help. So i decided on 500 volt at 270uf. Which with a lot of 8 units gives you 4500 volts @ 33.75uf. That is BETTER!
These are 1 3/8" dim 2 1/4" high. PERFECT fit for the Henry, Alpha, Heathkit, Dentron, Ameritron, etc. They are screw type.
Isn't is wonderful how Technology has come so far and things can be SMALLER and BETTER

First off I am very glad that someone finely addressed the cap issue in the Ameritron amps. I have an al1200 that I have owned for twenty years. It is a great amplifier. The only weak point has been the filter caps. I have changed them five times in twenty years. I installed the Ni4L caps this weekend and they worked great so far. No popping like the 450 volts. The only thing I can say is that I had to willow out the holes on the board to get the caps to fit but that was no big deal. It took 5 minutes. I will be ordering another set for my other al1200. Thanks Ni4L for solving this problem
I bought this for replacements of the caps in my 811H amp..... As soon as I replaced the cps, my amp was running quietly and smoothly with no popping or snapping noises......Thanks to Chris NI4L for manufacturing these items that any :"layman" can afford! I highly recommend this product!
When you need capacitors like these, be prepared to spend time looking for them and becoming friends with a banker. I was surprised and pleased to find them on this site while I was here looking for something else. I got these at less than half of what i could find them for at any other place.... and the delivery time on the order was really fast. Great service.
