Default SA2015 V-MOSFET Builders

SA2015 V-MOSFET (70W@8R, 140W@4R).
Using 3 matched pairs IRFP240 and IRFP9240 as final (current amp.stage)without using special(difficult to find)parts.
Here is the official thread. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/solid...8r-400w4r.html
Let's go from the start to the end.
Here is the schematic diagram.
All the files are free for noncommercial use.
Pcb are also available.
First fitting some parts,not soldered yet.
A complete set of measurements here.http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/solid...uilders-2.html
Prepairing the metal case here.http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/solid...uilders-3.html
Housekeeping and inrush assempled here.http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/solid...uilders-7.html
Two separate power supply modules here.http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/solid...uilders-8.html
All parts used in this amplifier is one person donation .
Thanks dear!
The protection MCU is another person donation.
Thanks!

Hello Thimios

It is better to return your plate with holes because so you have a space between the bottom of the case to house the screws.

1)A compleate populated board.
2)Prepairing an old heatsink for a prove sitting.
Tips.Screw all the transistors in position then put the pcb and solder them.

Sounds reasonable, but, due to the narrow space between the six electrolytics and the emitter balancing resistors, appears to be quite challenging.

Best regards!

Yes, better solder the six electrolytics AFTER output transistors are mounted and soldered!

I like your way,much easier,but i'm trying not to push hard the pcb and crack the connections when screwing. Easy way to keep the isolation pads in the right position too.
keeping solder gun in vertical position isn't difficult to solder between these parts.
BTW i will try yours when i will mound the boards to its final position. I hope not need to desolder....

I placed a squishy spacer between the PCB and the back of the To92 to ensure physical contact for better heat conduction.

I too had trouble with soldering the outputs after soldering the Capacitors.
I did consider doing in the opposite order but rejected it because one has to remove the whole lot to get to the solder side of the capacitors.
I could not come up with a better order for soldering.

I also wanted to use To264 but found the bigger size and the narrow spacing prevented the clamping bolts fitting in between.

If only the front end had been on a Daughter board and the output board stretched a bit to make soldering and bolting a bit easier.

The Daughter board could clip on via a 10X2 dual 20way plug/socket, using multiple pins for each connection. This would allow the Daughter board to lie flat across the enclosure enabling easier measurements during testing.
