35v and 50v caps in parallel?
« on: June 14, 2004, 04:31:52 AM »
No. The 35V caps would still have full applied voltage across them. As a rule of thumb I use caps rated ca 30% higher than the highest voltage they'll see in operation. You can connect lower rated caps in series to deal with high voltage, this is often done in tubeamp psu.
