Target and PE both sell this amp:
Looks to be higher power?
If you mean the 8 ohm rating of 10 w/rms is higher, thats only because their giving the 10% THD+N rating and not the 0.1% THD+N.

That is a side effect of how they work... thet resonate.


Yeah, at first I thought it was because the "top panel" wasn't attached solidly so I used some removeable masking tape to hold it in place. Same result.

The odd thing (or maybe it isn't so odd) is that the resonance isn't apparent when listening to them with music at high volume.

I guess that with music there are a lot of frequencies at once so the resonance "evens out"? In any case it appears the only way I can get a fr chart made is to drop the SPL meter a lower dB range which means less accurate measurements

BTW, cool looking cardboard speakers in your other post! Gives me ideas!

Well its official, none of the 3 Target stores in my area carry the T-Amp, the combo pack, or the stick on transducers.

I guess I'm stuck paying the $20.14 plus $10 s/h each from AmrMart .

IMHO they are still worth that price, but it would have been nice to find them at or even close to the price you found them for Sherman.

By the time I'm done buying all the connectors from PE to make a custom enclosure I will have well surpassed the price of both the amps.

Any further clarification from anyone on these two amps?



Target has the first amp packaged with a couple of (throw away?) speakers for 17.99. But is it really the same innards that people are modding here?
