Default recommend 2x20 watt amp

I am looking for a super compact ~2x20 watt amplifier to drive my B3Ns. I am building my own compact-boom-box-like enclosure for them an need a good amp. I don't care about controlling the volume on the amp, I figure I would leave it on high and control the source volume instead.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Read the IC "chip" amp thread. LM3886 is the flavor of the hour but they are pretty high powered for a 20w amp.

I am using a LM1875 amplifier for that job, and they are doing it well. You'll find cheap kit's on Ebay.
