DIY-Class-A-Single-Ended-Amplifier-2SK1058-Mosfet.jpgDIY Class-A Single Ended (SE) Amplifier with 2SK1058 Mosfet10662 viewsImplementation of Mark's DIY Class A 2SK1058 MOSFET Amplifier Project. It was difficult to obtain good 10W non-inductive wire wound resistors, so a 12V 20W lamp was used in place of the load resistors. Like in ZenLite Amplifier. :)

Here is a link to more pictures of the amplifier.

Aussieamps-nxV200-V-Fet-200W-Class-D-amp.JPGAussieamps nxV200 V-FET 200W Amplifier10338 viewsI was given the task to assemble two complete stereo amps based on the Aussieamps nxV200 V-FET amp modules. These are exquisitely made extremely compact amp modules based on two large and very powerful V-FETs. The remaining components are surface mounted (SMT). To achieve 200W into 4ohms a +/- 56V was required. The toroid transformer has 40V windings and 20,000 uF 100V caps (per rail and snubbed) are used. Four fast high surge diodes (each snubbed) made up the rectifier.

OFC medium gauge speaker wire was used for hook-up with silver soldier. Large brass cones
hold the amp high off the ground for cooling and resonance control.

The sound is pristine, clean and clear. Stereo image is detailed and 3D holographic. This amp will play extremely loud when pressed showing no signs of harshness or stress. I recommend the amp modules.

The baffle is 1" thick, so I used to router to make a 1/2" chamfer to give the driver some room to breathe. The hookup wire is plain 22 ga copper.

Goldwood-Open-Baffle-Speakers.jpg8" and 15" Goldwood Open Baffle Speakers9819 viewsGoldwood 8" full rangers whizzers and all (Qts 1.07) which should do the trick for the midbass lacking with the low Qts Fostex FE126E. The Goldwood 8 inchers have great bass in OB compared to the Fostex and really don't need that much bass augmentation.I ran the 8" full range and LP the 15" Goldwood subs in at 60hz. Nice deep bass, nice midbass punch and smooth highs. This speaker has a nice vintage tone that is definitely on the warm side. Just how I like it.

This is a big improvement in heat dissipation, but I still may make more improvements to make it run cooler though.
