You can use two of the four sections in this cap.

Fits perfectly in Ampeg B15N mounting bracket. Truly happy to have found that part. Thanks for keeping our oldies running!

I previously gave this capacitor a 1 star review. I can't edit that old review so I'm writing a new one instead. I apologize to AES, the cap I received was not defective. The problem I had with my Audio Research D-76 amp was a bad zener diode causing this AES cap to arc and burn up a resistor. The original multi-section cap (475vdc) did not have any issues with the bad zener, but this cap (525vdc) could not handle it. Once I figured it out, the AES cap has performed well. So, while this isn't as robust as the original cap, it does work well.

If you are going to recap any Audio Research series 50-75-76 this is the hardest cap to find at a reasonable price. The cap is a "bolt in" replacement and works very well. Forming was not required, but I did soak it for about one hour at 500VDC.

I bought this replace for C27(4x40μF/475V) of my AudioResearch D-51 Tube Amplifier.This capacitor fits fine to the D-51 main PC board and work well.

I purchased two of these caps to replace the ones in my browning mark 3s and I have never had a problem i have used the radio every day for the past three months will be buying more in the future

I bought this as a preemptive replacement for my Audio Research D-76 that uses a 40uF x 4 @ 475VDC pcb mounted can capacitor originally made by Cornell Dubilier that's now 42 years old. My tech, who's a 30 year veteran working with tube gear, did the installation. While applying voltage after installation, this new CE cap started arcing and burning up a 2 watt resistor. Tried it again after having to replace the resistor and it did the same thing. My original capacitor went back in and that works fine. So I have a defective CE cap and contact Antique Electronic Supply to get a replacement. The replacement did the same thing, it started arcing and burning up that resistor. I have to say that each section of this CE cap tested fine for capacitance. But I went through 2 of these and they both failed immediately. Perhaps there is not enough insulation between the plates internally(?). This CE cap is rated 50 volts higher than my original cap too. I hope Antique Electronic Supply figures out what went wrong during the initial production of this cap and can correct it in a future production run. Audio Research charges $250 for their replacement of my quad cap so that's out of the question for me. I'd rather not have to come up with a non drop-in replacement.
