Default 350 watt amplifier for sub-woofer

Hello,

I am looking for a design of an amplifier to drive a 350 watt sub-woofer.
Design targets:
- good 20 Hz wave
- Minimum 350 Watts at 8ohms
- No filters, it will be driven by an electronic crossover
- can be a less powerful amplifier (e.g. 100 watts) but must be able to be bridged (i.e. 2 amplifiers to give 350 watts)
- Will drive a single driver unit (350 watts at 8 omhs)

Thanks & Regards
Phile75

Try to use this amplifier. Its not cheap, but quality is great! Only 0,008% bad sound at 200W. Also you have to use minimum 10 000uF for suply. 10Hz-100kHz

How much do you want to spend?

That is always the first question.

that schematic is for anthony holtons symmetrical mosfet amp. you can get the full article at his website http://www.aussieamplifiers.com/ its in the power amplifiers section.
djQuan - if you're asking if the amp could be used in the car/home then yes as long as you had an appropriate power supply.

Either. The difference between a car amp and a home amp is generally just the Power Supply part of the circuit.

Ie, a car amp PSU has to get +/- V from 12VDC.
A home amp PSU has to get +/- V from 110/220VAC

Hello People,

thanks a lot for your replies, they're appreciated.

I am checking the design links I received. However here is some input:

- Power supply no problem. I have components to build a very large one. I have some 15.000 uF capacitors left from my previous hand made QUAD 405.
- How much to spend: well, I was hoping to get away with some 250 to 400 USD excluding power supply.

Best regards

To sigiux88 : I don't see there any protection against shorting - do you think, that is it 100 % safety ?

short circuit protection may not be needed if you're careful enough. I had my P3A's for more than a year now and I still haven't blown a fuse. taking into consideration it has been to several parties along with another amp as a loud disco PA system.
