The Jaycar amps have

4 x 6800uF = 27000uF.

Its OK.

How much would Shipping Cost from US to AUS for these modules though?

At 17lbs = 7.5kg I bet shipping would be close to AU$100.

Lucky for you Cloth Ears you live in "the land of the free" while "down under" we have to settle for what we get!

It depends on how long you're willing to wait...

Surface mail for 20 pounds is about USD$41, airmail for the same package is pretty close to your guess, about USD$91. If you get 2, then it's $67 for slow-mail and $167 for quick mail. As the weight limit is 44 pounds for USPS you can't get any better options unless Rythmik have a pet International courier. I think Brian, from Rythmik, has an id on this forum.

As I spent quite a few months waiting for some drivers from Nick at Lambda when they were running, I think I could probably afford the wait, which is supposed to be 4-6 weeks (although from my book buying expliots, I've had stuff arrive in less than 2).

I did ask Brian about 250v/50Hz power, and he said that the module was switchable (I think it's the red switch on the lower right of the back panel). He also said it should be able to drive a 3 Ohm load - I'm going to have 2 x 6 Ohm speakers wired in parallel, so I thought I should ask.

P.S. Yes, I do live in the 'land of the free' - Melbourne, to be exact. It's just that the price of freedom is expensive...

"The Jaycar amps have 4 x 6800uF = 27000uF"

That wasn't on their site - do you have access to more complete specs? If so, can you post the extra info here

Thanks

Actually I called JAYCAR and one of the salesman checked for me.

Cloth Ears -> For some reason I thought you were from the US, that's why I said "land of the free"!

As for the Rythmik amps, I dont tend to buy products where you cannot claim warranty in AUS. It becomes tedious. My friend bought a GForce Ultra 6800 from US and he was shipping it back and forth for warranty purposes.

i can vouch for the quality of these plate amps. they are pretty decent.
mr joe rasmussen uses them in his critical Q sub, and there is a page on how to change corner frequency and turn off boost if you so wish:
http://members.ozemail.com.au/~joera...mp_changes.htm

there has been a few changes in the later models since, and there are now 4x6800uF caps on board as mentioned above as opposed to the original two. i would also upgrade the "bell wire" cable that goes from the board to the remote control front panel.


i hope i dont mean to be rude, but i have two of these in their original boxes, tested but never used, for sale here in Perth for the same price. they weigh 7kg in their boxes so postage would be around $20. but obviously if you live close to sydney that would be the best option.

Default **********MORE NEWS**********

I just spoke to AUDIO AUSTRALIA about these amps. These guys are located in MENAI, SYDNEY.

I managed to negotiate a deal if we purchase 4-5 amps at $200 inc GST plus shipping, which would be another $3-4 per amp.

So come on guys, start showing a bit more interest!
