I have a 8 ohm load, power supply +-12V, where i can find the PQ quiescent power dissipation of the amplifier. Thanks in advance.

I've used little northbridge heatsinks pulled off of old motherboards for smaller 3886 amps that aren't bein cranked on,

Calculates power output, dissipation, etcpp. It does not support the 1875 directly but for the 1876 it states about 6W maximum output at 1%THD and ~7W max. dissipation/IC. Thatīs worst case. When playing music it shouldnīt get anywhere near hot with just a piece of aluminium or so. For maximum output power youīd have to increase voltage rails. (thatīd be ~25V for an 8ohm load) greets Jens __________________ jens
