Orange Drop Caps

I am replacing some signal caps in an old amp with the new "orange drops" from Mojotone. Do these caps have any polarity? Theres no indication of it but I've heard there is some preference to installing the cap so the outer foil is oriented towards the the signal in. Any one know for sure?

nope.....non polarized. I always situate them so that the legend of all caps is located on the same side for easy identification. This also helps when double checking your work.

Thanks bluesman

I did a little research and found this http://www.sbelectronics.com/images/...illocation.pdf he seems to share the view that it doesnt really matter.
