Caps

Do you have more detailed specs on the Caps you used? I have a bunch laying around and I want to make sure I don't blow the thing up.

Detailed specs? Like, voltage? All caps are rated for 25v or higher. The values on the caps are listed in the BOM: http://www.crazybutable.com/projects/stella/BOM

So for C1, C2, and C7, you can use any 100uf capacitor that is rated for 25 volts or higher. 50v or 100v caps would be just fine. 16v caps would be pushing it, unless you only planned on running the Stella Amp at low voltages, like on 3 or 4 AA batteries. Then 16 would be okay. But if you wanted to power your amp at 12 volts, you should use 25v caps.

(I do have parts numbers for the caps, I need to put them in that table there.)

Does that answer your question?

Yep, thanks, that will work. I have another project I was doing and was just going to put the parts in with that order.
