Hello Sord,
Maplin mostly do Velleman kit amps now (which I've never tried). I built a couple of the 150W MOSFET amps a couple of years ago which are nothng special (except for sub usage) but are very easy to build. There's some build details here:

Nice one,
David.

Maplins sell a 30 Watt (15 into 8Ohms) sterios amplfier, this is quite cheap (i belive it is £19.99) and should be perfect for someone like yourself.

you may also need to purchase a power supply kit. but i am not certain, it is probably best to ask someone at maplins.

its a kit, it does also come pre built as well but you pay more for that.

the link is here: http://www.maplin.co.uk/products/mod...95&modulecode=

most of the infomation is there

EDIT:

reading the infomation, you do not need a powersupply kit, just a transformer which maplins sell, you will need to read the instructions for a sutable type.

this is a sterio amplifier which has 2x10W output in 8 ohm

you will need a 50VA 2x12v 2A transformer for this

yes, you will need to solder the components on yourself, but if you dont do that then it isn't really a kit...

the instrucions are very clear though, so it is almost impossable to make a mistake.
