Amp for active loudspeakers
 
I want to make some active speakers to use as basically near-field monitors (for my computer). I've been searching for plate amplifiers that can fit in the speakers themselves, but to no avail. The only thing I see is subwoofer amps. Anybody know where these can be found?

Hi Nm2285, just curious, what is a "plate amplifier" I'm not familar with the term.

Hi,

The Solen AP series is available if your interested.

While there are some interesting sub/sat monitor amp combinations or even full range plate amps available, most are physically larger than anything qualifying as "mini-monitor" could accommodate.

For example, the Solen AV series that Bob referenced above would require a minimum enclosure back panel size of 5 1/2" x 9", plus additional depth of cabinet to allow clearance for power supply components. (approx 3 1/2" IIRC)


In addition, most are more power than you'd probably need for a computer monitor speaker. This sounds to me like the perfect candidate for something like:

or any basic T-amp

If you really need to "self-power" your speakers, you could always just build one of these little guys, or something like the 41HZ series of kits into (one of) the enclosures.

There is also a less powerful version available from MCM.
