It's simple just use a hot air blower and solder paste.

Do you have a schematic of the protection?

Ofcourse. This protection basicly is from elector (PA300 amp) but I Add signal indocator and cliping indicator

R1 - 12V drop, 20mA
R2 - Cliping refererence 3V
R3 - opamp inuputs
R4 - 15V drop, 15mA
R5 - relay droper, 24V drop, 24mA (if coil on relay is 1K)
R6 - AC conector, 0.5mA (example +-60V / 0.5mA= 120K)
R7 - same like R4
R8 - same like R4

Example for R1

Resistor (k Ohms) = ( Supply Voltage - 12 ) / 20mA
Power (mW) = ( Supply Voltage - 12 ) ^2 / Resistor (k Ohms)

For a 45 Volt supply, we get ...

Resistor = ( 45 - 12 ) / 20 = 33 / 20 = 1.65k Ohms
Power = (45 - 12 ) ^ 2 / 1.65 = 33 ^2 / 1.65 = 1089 / 1.65 = 660 mW

Example for R2 cliping reference

Current (mA) = Reference Voltage - So a 3V reference requires 3mA
Resistor (k Ohms) = ( ( Supply V - Reference V ) / Current (mA) ) * 2
Power (mW) = Current ^ 2 * Resistor

An example would be an amp with 45V supplies, and requiring a reference voltage of 5V. So ...

Current = 5mA
Resistor = ( ( 45 - 5 ) / 5 ) * 2 = ( 40 / 5 ) * 2 = 16k Ohms
Power = 5 ^ 2 * 16 = 25 * 16 = 400 mW

I posted word document with table of values if some one dont want to calculate values of resistors, schematic to.

Values for R7,R15,R17,R16 on amplifier are from basic scehmatic of amplifier

Regards

I managed to get solder paste. So maybe later I will experiment some with DirectFETs, they would really increase the performance of the amp.

I use a much simpler relay protection. It is not as effective, has higher treshold, but every component fits under the relay in SMD.

speaker protection

nice. Yeah the Direc-fets are way to go, I havent seen such low rdsOn anywhere but be precise when drawing the footprints and carefull when soldering; If you have a homemade pcb cover coppertracks with very thin layer of tin otherwise you will short the drain(the can) with pcb tracks and don't add too much paste, better too little if youre using PbF devices. Also what I've learnt when soldering the critters is that you can temprorarily leave you multimeter wired to the pcb tracks that go to mosfet, dial it to diode test and see if it shorts while your blowing the hot air. If it shorts at some point of soldering you just slightly move it with tweezers till it snaps in place..

For my simple one: when powered off, the 12V for relay discharges very fast due to small puffers in my supply, so relay turns off. Turn on is delayed by the cap.
But you can add an optocoupler to make it more reliable.
