Default connex TA3020 v3c

Hello all,

Ive bought and built 4 connex TA3020 V3C's (tripath 3020 chip) using the suggested smps modules made by the same company.

They sound realy good and im very happy, but I would like to try and get the noise floor just that little bit lower to make the amp perfect to my ears.

What can I do to drop the floor??

Thanks all.

ps- I have a little bit of a squeek/squeel sound from one of the modules - not much above the noise floor - but it is there. Any ideas what this is?

absolutely no Pro on the topic or on the modules, but just looking at it I would suggest trying an enclosure that might shield the setup a bit more. To try if it does anything, move the setup far away from any source of radiation. (Which might prove to be quite challenging...)

thats a start.
The modules are going into a enclosure at some point- I made the rack you currently see to evaluate and make any changes needed before I started messing around with cutting enclosures etc.
I was thinking of separating the smps from the amp module with a aluminium wall or somthing like that- was thinking of star earthing or somthing like that??

I agree with Rob also, you have the speaker wires crossing the power cables from the SMPS into the amp module? I wouldn't start changing components on the amp module unless you REALLY know what you are doing. Are you on the ConnexElectronic Class T thread?

just a qick update- I moved the cables and the high pitched noise has gone.

Im looking to try bridging 2 of the amps next- do I just solder the point up or do I have to put a resistor in it or somthing?

where to I take the speaker out from when its bridged?
