Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would say bigger values of capacitors would be more effective. Since \[\ X_L = \frac{1}{2\pi fC}\] where f  frequency and C capacitance X_c  capacitive reactance (capacitors' opposition to the change in AC voltage) The smaller X_c of the filter capacitor with respect to the load resistance, the better the filtering action. Also, if you have a larger X_c (small C) that means that there will be a bigger voltage drop on that element in the circuit, which you probably don't want.
