33uF 100V Electrolytic Non-Polarized Crossover Capacitor
I'm looking to replace (4) Bennic 33 uF bipolar caps in two Paradyme Studio 40 crossovers. What would you recommend for a replacement that would be a better choice than the originals?
It depends on where in the network it is how much effect the quality of the cap will have. If it is in series with a tweeter then I would get something a bit better like an Audio Cap or Aura Cap, there are also some very esoteric caps available made with silver and sometimes even gold in them. These are for very high end speakers and can have a huge effect on imaging and sound definition etc. Bennic makes some very high end caps, clarity cap, solen, mudorf are some others. If the originals were Bennics would check the capacitor guide on this web site. I believe that PE sells Solen's and Audio Caps. $$ usually means better quality, for the most part. Madisound also has a good selection of the more esoteric capacitors and might carry Bennic's. They can be pricey, up over $100 each, not for this size or quality level though I would guess.

This is called a 'crossover' cap. Can it also be used in an amplifier circuit that requires this value? What is its temperature rating?
Only if the circuit requires a non polarized capacitor. These are generally rated for up to 85 degrees.
