Hi everybody,

I would appreciate your comments.

Default a closed case

Here is a picture of the closed case...

This is based on the Peter Daniels' design with Brian's boards.

I have one problem though. I keep blowing fuses (between line and the primaries of the transformer). I have used 250V 4A and no luck.

Any suggestions...?

Cheers,

Rafal,

Looks good!

What are you going to do with the second set of pcbs that I sent you?

As for the fuses, are you using slow-blo fuses? I am using a 3A slowblo for mine, and have never blown it. Others have said that a 2A slowblo also works fine. Are you blowing fuses at turn-on?

I added your pictures to my new gallery of finished amps with my boards:

Rafal,The appearance of your CLONE is terse , durable. Let me recall that is full of network equipment of industrial aesthetics such as ROUTERS.

cheers!

Hi Brian,

I was toying with the idea of buildiing a second amp fo an active amplification of jordan 2-way, but for now, I will build a set of horns instead. The boards will have to wait a little longer. Maybe I will make an amp for a buddy.

Hi Da5idVz,

The big red caps are for ensuring low dc offset. they are placed between Reiken 680 ohm and signal ground


Thank you all for your comments

Cheers,
