Default +-70V amp needed

I have a +-70V transformer and i need an amp to use it, cause most amps work at about +-40. The amp has to be 100w+ and i want to use it for a subwoofer. Any ideas? I saw the zeta320 but there's no pcb and it works with 60v not 70v

HAY!
What you think when you say "transformer +/-70 volts" AC,or DC voltage after bridge rectifier and capacitors,or just AC voltage direct on transformer before bridge rect. and caps!!?? Please be precise!

Default Are you sure about the transformer ?

Are you talking about the DC voltage of a filtered power supply or are you talking about the transformer voltage. You have expressed the voltage as DC (+70 0 -70v) and in this case there are several projects around DIY that would do the job. P:rovided the transformer is power enough you will get around 200 watts into 8 ohms.

If though your talking about the transformer voltage, 70 0 70 AC then you will end up with rails of approx +95 0 -95 volts DC. In this case you could potentially get about 380 watts into 8 ohms.

Lets us know what you got and we'll go from there.

Cheers
Quasi

any idea what kind of current? for an 8 ohm amp you should have a current of 10A, or 20A for a 4 ohm amp (or stereo 8 ohm).

Anthony Holton's AV400 amp should fit the bill.
This delivers 400W into 4 ohms, and uses MOSFET outputs. You're going to need a big heatsink though, and plenty of capacitance. Don't bother if your transformer is any less than 600VA.

Anthony sells boards for this but you can also find the schematic floating about and make your own.

ESP's P68 fits the ticket @ 500wpc

I am currently building one now using a 1.0KVA toroidal and a massive heatsink

Default Leach superamp?

I have a pair of similar sized transformers (maybe 3-4 volts higher). Will a Leach SuperAmp (double-barreled) amplifier work with a voltage of -+70-75? It specs +-85.

Here's another design which expects -+70v rails:

Anyone ever built this one? I've never heard of it before.
