Exclamation Sacrilege

OK I might be tortured and thown in the fires of hell for this one but I might be able to get my hands on a couple of ALEPH-X boards and I was thinking what it would be like to have the silky smooth sounds from this amp in my car.

Has anyone considered building a PWM supply for an ALEPH?

Default EEK!

Disapproval from the man himself. Yikes, I hope there are no toes bruised.

you should install at least one more generator in your car, and connect the Fets heatsink to your engines watercooling system.

I know it seems kinda out there but wouldn't it be interesting to try?

i think its stupid.

the only way to feed it would be with dedicated batteries for the amp, else you listen half an hour and can search someone who helps you starting your car.

If you drive in the night you can decide: lights or music.

I don't think the car supplying the power would be an issue.. I mean, there are plenty of competition systems out there with 170-250 amp alternators (or sometimes banks of 2-4!) ... I would guess the issues would be cooling and the power supply.

Cooling could probably be accomplished pretty easily with either a watercooling kit or fans. Duct the heat outside your car. Or, if you're really feeling kinky, duct your AC to wherever you're placing the amps.

The power supply could always be done via batteries. Get some motorcycle batteries and create banks in series to the desired rail voltages, then build something that allows them to be hooked in parallel for recharging. I'm sure there'sproducts out there to do that. However, you'll probably need to beef up the alternator to charge the batteries.

Whatever benefits you may get from having a fantastic amp in your car will probably be smashed by the noisefloor of the car I would guess that unless you're parking your car, have some fantastic drivers, and listening. Expect to add a lot of damping material to your car and adding some top notch drivers (The Seas Lotus series comes to mind) in order to get some good sound. Add on the fact that you're going to need to bi amp the front separates and probably use a separate amp for your subs, and it probably looks even less appealing.
