A few pages back i showed the start of my bpa 300 for my subwoofer. The amplifier will have a dual purpose. It will be swticheable beteen bridge and stereo more.

The filter circuit containing a linkwitz transform and parametric EQ can be switcheable. this circuit also contains the inverting and non inverting output for bridge mode.

In the last photo you can see it sitting next to my other gainclones.

Not an amp but a fun pic my buddy took of a couple LME49720HA opamps on a dirty MDF workbench at my shop.

My finished LM3875 dual mono Audiosector premium kit. Passive attenuator is an Alps Blue (50k dual log, with a 47k metal film shunt). Dual input, dual output. It also contains a Sekerez designed class A, single MOSFET (per channel) headphone amp, which is completely switched out of the Gainclone circuit.

Just to clarify, the passive attenuator is dual in/out, the power amp is dual mono. The class A headphone amp is not connected to the LM3875 whan selected.

Looks great!

A newbie question. What is the purpose of the 47K shunt resistor before the pot?

You'll notice that the pot is connected to the ground connection. The 47k resistor and the 50k pot make up a simple voltage divider network. The output (to the power amp) is taken from the centre of the voltage divider network. This means that none of the signal goes through the wiper of the pot. The pot is effectively out of the system, which in my opinion yields sonic improvements.

Chris.
