Default Big A** Nelson Washers

I've noticed on the Pass products the use of oversized washers on output devices to help spread out the force of the mounting bolts. Are these standard washers or special order? I like the idea, and would like to use it on some of my amps where the output devices are blowing a lot of power.

I think they're called fender washers. I buy them at Lowe's.

Standard hardware - not necessarily required.

Yup. Fender washers at Lowe's or HD. Work nicely, they do.

Went to Lowe's after work - gottem washer. I'll see if they make a difference in device temperature, especially with high dissipation designs like "Le Mutant" and the "SiC Puppy.
