Default In-Speaker Amp and Power


I have a pair of JBL 4301 powered broadcast monitors and one of the amps went out. I'd like to replace the amps on both speakers. The speakers require around 50-80 watts to run. I'd like to put the power supply and amps inside of the speaker enclosure and I'm not sure if these gainclone power supplies would cause problems. The enclosure are sort of small, their only 8" drivers .I am also unsure as to which chip is best for me. I appreciate any help or advice.

if you put the amplifiers and their power supplies inside the speaker box, how does the heat get out?

Modern digitals run cool enough that heat is not much of a problem.
"Fully on MOSFET = closed switch, Fully off MOSFET = open switch, Half on MOSFET = poor imitation of Tiffany Yep." - also applies to IGBTs!

you could use a 'plate amp' design with an external heatsink. have done this myself a few time and it works pretty well.
