that said, I think the original BA-1/2 idea by Nelson kind of opened the door to using two heatsink per mono amp
negative and positive side on each their seperate heatsink
or at least it looked that way to me
DC drift problems ? ....dont know

imo...not sure I would like to mess with anything that wouldnt work with 'normal' heatsinking....whatever normal is
i'm going to use 10mm PCB spacers between the sinks on top lid
well. normal heatsinking? it's no such thing in class A world

those who built the F5T what was your main reason ?
Did you realy feel like the 25w version was not enough ? and why ?

Thanks

Thanks, yeah ive got a few transformers lying around that i probably wont need, one or two for the Zen4.

So just to sum up, for F5T (v2)
those of us using modushop.biz chassis, we need atleast the 5U - 400mm ?

That sounds good, maybe a kind of wire see thru mesh would be good for the lid, i always like to see inside lol and make it pretty with LED's inside haha

Marching on have found my next issue, the non-existant output transistors FQA12P20, FQA19N20.

Best alternative for F5Tv2 ? are the Irf/irfp pair usable ? they are quite expensive too, i guess any transistor like this is.

That circuit is for the primary side/transformer startup only. It also has a VA rating limit.

you mean that like the IRF mosfets need matching but some of the othrers don't ?
