I found this on Pinwiki:
https://www.pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_WPC#DCS_Sound_Board_Issues
Section 6.31.66
My Judge Dredd really doesn’t sound bad.
Has anyone tried snipping the capacitors?
How much of an improvement does it make?
Would you recommend it?

I've done it on a couple of games. Sometimes you can tell the difference, sometimes not. Either way it's an improvement to the circuit, so worthwhile doing if you have the board out of the game.

Would I have to remove the board first? Or is it okay to snip them with everything connected?

You can cut them off with the board still in the game and the machine off. But I'd recommend removing the board from the game so you have a better view of it and you can be sure you don't cut the wrong thing off.
