Dayton Audio DMPC-0.10 0.10uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor
can these caps be used in power supply or power amp circuits?
Certainly! Make sure you are respecting the voltage rating, consider the worst case voltage and plan accordingly. These capacitors are probably 2 notches down from state of the art. The next up are the self-healing "orange drop" capacitors which exhibit a burn-in effect and become quite good. The next step up from that are the exotic teflon capacitors that nobody can afford. It is somewhat misleading that these are in the speaker building section because most of these capacitors are perfectly general purpose. Dayton caps are, iirc, available in 250 and 400v ratings. Other brands support 650, and some up to 1,200 volts for certain values. When spec'ing voltage ratings, remember to design for the worst case where the worst combination of other parts have been removed from the circuit. See my review of this part for specific examples.
