hello people of diy

i am a newbie and wish to learn from you experts

i am currently building a pass x1000 clone and wanted
to ask the papa/ master a few tips on heatsinking

as i understand it x1000 represents the best papa has
to offer

thank you very much

well....the x1000 idles around 600watts/channel. Unless your using forced cooling, you're going to need massive heatsinks. Got any pics of this x1000 you're "currently" building?

X1000 schematic is not / will not be available.

your best bet is checking out the X100 back engineered here thread
that's a sticky.

More certainly, it is the biggest.

X-1000? What speakers are you going to use with it? What amplifier are you using at the moment?

Personally, I'm quite satisfied with 10 w...

For a newbie the X1000 seems a slightly overambitious project. Personally I would advise you to start off with projects like the mini-A or Aleph30, of which the schematics are widely available, just to get a feeling for such a project. Then proceed to larger amps as you gain experience (and resources).

maybe state your budget first... then find a suitable project ... a X1000 will demand lots of expensive hardware...

It is my dream to get or build X1000, too.
As my current situation does not allow my dream,
I'd like to see and enjoy your success.

Who the papa/ master is?
He has a magic hand.
His hand temp decides the size of heat sinks.



Good luck.

Jack,

some overhere don't need the schematic, rule number 1 of the game is having NP's explicit permission.
The Pass way, or the highway !

(jftr: the core of an X requires investing in a bunch of flaky 7-legged parts which you will not find anyhow)
