Default my first step to class A amp -aleph3 3ow.

Hi all,

Today I just tried to make Aleph3 30w class A. once I build the circuit, it is working at the first step trial without any error. But some things I dont really understand about R8 and R115. Though I used pot but I need to clear this. Pls any one can help me?

Now my amp heat is about to 44c. its looks nice temp.

Need suggestion pls.

Thanks for help.

led - you probably reversed it ( most often mistake )

R8 -- you can try without it , for start ; report what DC offsets on outputs are , so we'll know do you need them ;

R115 - leave it as is for start (820E ) , and later - when you learn few things , you can measure AC gain of output CCS ( upper output mosfets ) , and you'll know what to do .

i want to know. as i have seen on aleph3 has used three pair of IRFP240. here per pair is 12.5 watts output so total is 36+ watts....can i add more output mosfets following the output rail?
i know there must be increase more power supply amp.

thank you.

Good question.

actually i am learning by making many types of amp as i can. it is my hobby. i just make my own and keep as well. my friend took two to listen. one i make for my uncle he is very happy. i never took any extra money for workmenship or anythings at all. they will return me when they can....only to my uncle, i gave him as a present.

thanks for asking...
