Default Hi all...some newbie needs help here

Hi all let me introduce myself first, my name is Ray and im from Jakarta , Indonesia.
Im studying electrical engineering 4th semester right now and i have some interest in (car) audio especially amplifier.

and recently, i take a look an "art" from one of this website member. Mr. David Lumanauw. It's a "beautiful" car amplifier (a handmade SS 4 x 200 W Amps) with a beautiful sound too (i hear it through a 3 way visaton's ribbon tweeters and titanium midrange plus scan speak's 4531 midbasses). hahaha as an electrical engineering student im totally jealous .

So i decided to make myself an amplifier. but i need some opinion from seniors here...
what type of amps that can make a good start for me?
is it chip amps using LM 3886 (im very interested in carlosfm designs) or should i go with solid state?or is it other type of amps?

im sorry for my bad english and im sorry for my stupid questions.
im waiting for the replies

thanks all

Hi Ray and welcome to the forums. I can't help you with the amp but I'm wondering if you might want to post this in amplifiers as well so more people will see it.

Welcome Ray,

A chip amp would be a perfect place for you to start, Just my opinion... low cost, a little math, some hard thinking, heat sinks & mechanical work,and some good experience with wire and a hot iron.
