    Capacitor Capacitance and Voltage relation

    What's the relationship between capacitance and voltage in a capacitor. I have seen amps that are rated higher but with lower total capacitance (but higher voltage on their capacitors) compared to amps with higher total capacitance(but lower voltage) rated lower. Does anyone know why would that be?

    If reference level is 85 db(?) and my speakers are 90 db efficient then I am not even using a watt of power to listen at reference levels. Does that sound right?
