Re: Ampeg V-4 filter caps
Thanks, Dutch.  
I figure I'll go with the 80-40-30-20s. Both caps are twist lock cans that *should* fit in the existing sockets. Prices are about equal.  
Voltage ratings are 525 V (the originals were 450 V), but each section is wired in series to the equivalent section of the other can--except the last 40 uF section, which is wired to a separate 40 uF can that is clamped to the circuit board. I don't really understand why Ampeg used a separate cap there instead of the last section of the can, but I guess I should keep it that way.
