Those are extremely common capacitors used for almost everything. Anywhere that sells electronic parts would be fine, but if you choose to order, you can get them from Mouser.

The actual values are not that important and have huge tolerances, and the voltage ratings are the minimum, and can be as rated, or higher. 16V and 25V capacitors are common rating. Back in the day, a 25V capacitor would have been relatively large, now, 25v will be smaller than a 3v used to be, so they will fit.

The capacities are 400, 300, 500, and 50. The standard sizes corresponding to this are 470, 330, 470, and 47 mfd. So you want those capacities at either 16 or 25 volt rating. I would look inside first to see whether you need axial or radial types, and you won't find a dual version for C1A, just use two individual units.

If you were local I would just give them to you, but they should be very easy to find almost anywhere for very cheap.
