Default Ya gotta do......

Nelson,

This is the second time you've mentioned a monster amp!
The first time , we sent you back to work on the crossover. The big amp keeps coming up, so yes, I think it is indeed bubbling up from within you!!!!

At the very least, we all need a big amp for those subwoofers that put the woofer in a tiny cube below resonance and then they roll off smooothly- I forget what they are called (the Sunfires are an example) and then you power them with a huge amp.

Also, my kid's school needs a stage PA system with big amps! They could have Pass sound, and grow up to be audiophiles!! I'll need some help on the woofers, from your ongoing testing program!!! :

Wait!!! that's a real niche that needs filling. Very few good sounding Pro sound amps out I've heard. Make the design rugged!! In the new state every rock and rool band will have a decent PA system! Yup, you are saving the world one amp at a time!!!!

Are you sure you really want a monster amp
Actually I originally asked you the very question your answer was quoted from some time ago. I am still looking for a monster Amp and would be delighted to see a Nelson Pass design. I have been thinking about trying thw AV800 by Anthony Holton. I currently own the Rotel 1080 200Watt Stereo beast and would really like to build something that can out perform Rotels' 380 Watt 1090.

Yeah, yeah, I know, I am a power hungry, knuckle dragging, vine swinging, gorilla with a penchant for loud classical music.

I thought about an Aelph 1.2 but at 200 watts it still does not invoke that hormone rush, besides I am still working on my Aelph II.

Anybody have any feedback on the AV800? Still rather build a Pass project.

Anthony

Since we talk about monster amp, anyone who knows what have happened to Glen's wild ideas? Before he had publish a real monster of 3.6 kW with pcb's and all. The noise-opamp article from a another thread Opamps are noisier...is this article really true? came from him. 3.6kW wasn't enough so he started to develope this 20 kW thing. My question was: Why do you want this power? Never got any answer.

If you do want 20 kW class D of some sort is thing I suppose?

Nelson, couldn't you at least give us a sketch (not neccessarily working) of your bold ideas?

Ok, just as I suspected. What happended to Guys previous
answer and my response to it? I can't find netiher, or was
I just dreaming that it happened??? Anyway his joke worked;
although somewhat suspiciously I did believe him, until today
when I suddenly remembered that Dr. Morbius was the scientist
in that movie. I was about to respond and congratulate him
to a sucessful joke, but couldn't find the posts. Instead I found
your post, which I take as the final and correct answer to my
question.

You bet. Unfortunately, I feel compelled to actually build
them before publishing the design...

Mr. Pass, any hints as to what your design might be in topology, out put stage, timeline?

Ever thought about a Hitachi device output section in place of IRF? Thier new high Power matched pair MOSFETS are interesting. Would you go mono block or a stereo front end?

Please Sir, could we have some more?

Information that is, texas gold

Anthony
