Default Making a less-huge Aleph-X

One thing I've noticed about existing Aleph-X implementations is their great mass. They seem to all be several cubic feet of hulking aluminum. Since I'd like my Aleph-X to be slightly smaller than a horse, I went off and designed these little boards. Two of them make up an Aleph-X (one could be used to implement a regular Aleph, for the truly compact.) The assembled amp is 5"x12"x12" WxHxD.

One of the design features is the ability to stick four channels of these in the trunk of my Miata

Yea! But you'd better have a 3 foot window fan in the lid of that Miata trunk so the whole car doesn't start glowing red hot ... That heat sink might get hot enough to melt...

Hahahah... nice one. Just so everyone knows, the point it so I can *transport* four channels to my friends' houses using the miata, not to go booming down the street!

Hi JWB,

I, too, like the idea of a smaller AX (to begin with). Would you consider supplying your boards to a wider market??

Cheers

Jon

I'd probably just post the Gerber files here when I've sorted it out.

Bias?Volts?Watts?
I don't find the existing boards that big.If you stack them you could probably arrive at the same size stereo amp that you mention , maybe even narrower.
