 11th May 2010, 01:48 PM #7861 jackinnj   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Apr 2002 Location: Llanddewi Brefi, NJ I want you to go through the maths again and determine how much heat will be dissipated by the 50 ohm and 10 ohm resistors when the amplifier is running at max. The Panasonics, for the money, are very good for audio.

 I used THESE as PD mentions in one of his posts for all the small resistors.
Wrong. The ten ohms have to be 1w rated

 11th May 2010, 02:25 PM #7863 AndrewT   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders What is the maximum peak voltage that can appear on the speaker terminal? Let's assume Vsupply is 25Vdc. Let's assume voltage drop through the cables and devices from PSU to speaker terminal is 2V. That leaves 23Vpk at the output. You have 50r (100r//100r) + 10r determining the peak current through the feedback circuit. Maximum current is Vpk/Rtotal = 23/60 = 383mA. Power dissipated in the three resistors is for 10r 10 * 0.383^2 = 1.47Wpk. for 100r 100 * (0.383/2)^2 = 3.67Wpk. These are instantaneous worst case dissipations for a +-25Vdc supply. The continuous dissipation for all the feedback resistors will be less than a quarter of the peak figure. Each feedback reaches peak current when the other is at near zero current. These figures are for flat out on a sinewave test signal that just reaches output clipping. On real very loud music the peak figures will be similar, the continuous dissipations will be much lower. __________________ regards Andrew T. Last edited by AndrewT; 11th May 2010 at 02:34 PM.

Jack, what's up with your site? went to look for F-5 components, nothing shows?

We had floods here last month and I had let some stuff get wet -- so I've been repairing equipment, plus it just takes a lot of time to assemble the kits and get them out so I am taking a breather for a while. I still have plenty of JFETs but IRF MOSFETs (thanks Vishay) are on 32 week backorder.

While you are quick to call me out as being wrong I simply went by the BOM's found in this and other F5 threads by PD and went by what I observed as the CMF50 resistors as posted by PD himslef HERE

And HERE

The only mention of larger 3W resistors I saw when collecting parts were R5-R8 and R11 and R12.

 15th May 2010, 09:03 PM #7868 Marra   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Nov 2009 Location: Near Lincoln Please confirm whether this heatsink will be ok for one channel of F5. Fischer SK157 300mmWx150mmLx85mm fins 0.25degrees/watt. cvillier are your f5 pcb's and power supply pcb's still available. Keith

Those specs sounds perfect for the project.
And yes, I still have boards available. If you have more questions about my boards, please ask them in this thread:
http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/group...-new-post.html
or on my blog (see my signature).

Yep, the long finning makes the difference, and probably the best you can get

I was so enthusiastic I bought 1 full meter ..... dammed expencive, and not too clever ..... I can barely lift it but base is 100% smooth, top quality
