Question Is the F1 dead?

Seems no one talks about the First First Watt.
Is this an amp to build or is the F5 the BEES KNESS!

probably too much of sand for usual flea power flower children

majority of them are still thinking that active device in amp is major issue for righteousness

(even if on both side of campus you'll find same type of thick heads )

but - don't tell anyone that I told you that

If we think in perspective there is no other solution, all of them we need to build.

Wacky

Yes becouse F5 is the most simple and the least demanding to the speakers of all First Watt amps.

But it does not mean it's the best especially for the specific driver or/and crossover combination.

For full range driver still F1/F2 or F3 might be better depending on the enclosure and the rest of the systm and preferences.
