    Electrolytic Question

    Will (2) paralleled 100uf electrolytics filter out as much noise (potential for hum, AC line noise) as a single (1) 200uf electrolytic in the same spot?
    We're talking the first filters in a power supply here.

    Thanks

    all else being equal, yes.
    (e.g., same or higher voltage rating, same electrolytic design/specs other than value...)
    It's uh... uh... it's down there somewhere, let me take another look...

    Thank you.
    All else is equal, I am just adding an identical 100uf to the 100uf already there: 100uf + 100uf
    Same brand and series.

    as usual, Rod Elliot has a good read regarding linear DC supplies including
    a subtopic related to the original post:
