Default Capital Audio Fest DIY amp shootout July 25-27, DC area

There will be a DIY amp shootout at CAF this year. Rules are available here: http://www.dcaudiodiy.com/images/Fin...st.Rules-1.pdf Contest entry form is available here: http://www.dcaudiodiy.com/images/Fin...try.Form-1.pdf

Basic summary of the rules: Build a stereo amp that weighs <70lbs and is less than 20"x20"x20".

You don't need to build an amp specifically for this contest, you can bring what you already have. Kits are allowed/encouraged.

Good luck!

Roscoe

Hi Roscoe, I read the rules and have a question with regards to "single chassis". Is separate power supply in one box and amplifier/s in second box, if these are tied somehow together, forming one unit, acceptable? How about two monoblocks, are those not allowed?

I would need to be on a single physical unit. An "external" power supply that was mechanically attached to the amp would count, separated with an umbilical wouldn't cut it, neither would monoblocks.

It's now a moot point, see the next post....

Cancelled due to apparent lack of interest.

Stay tuned, this may get resurrected for 2015.
