[top]The Project

[top]Introduction


Give a brief [1-2 paragraph] description of your amplifier.

[top]Goals


What were some of your goals with the design of the amp? In the end, did you achieve them? If not, where did the design fall short of your expectations?

examples: I wanted to create a class A amp that produced THD 0.00001% at 1KHz but I only achieved 0.01%

Output configurationsCan it be bridged? Parallel drive?
Output ImpedanceValue or plot/plots

[top]Schematic/Blueprint


Please attach schematics to this wiki page. You can then use the [IMG] tag to display them inline. Please don't be afraid to attach Gerber files to the page as well.

Note: There is a bug in the wiki right now where you can't add attachments to a wiki after 30 minutes.

[top]Bill of Materials


Either list them in this section or attach a file to the page that people can download.

Note: If this project uses other projects as components (maybe this is a full build and uses an amplifier and PSU from other projects, please list them here).

[top]Simulations and Analysis


Embed the images for your simulations here along with descriptions for each of them so people know what you're talking about.


[top]Construction (Steps / Tips / Notes)


Is there anything peculiar about the design that a builder might want to know about? List them here? Or do you just want to give us a step-by-step build plan; that works too.

[top]Project Modifications


Do you have some small modifications to suggest for the project that could improve it? Please list them and tell us why they improve the design. If this is discussed in a thread, please link the thread URL here....

[top]Modification 1


Cross the streams!

[top]Modification 2


Install a flux capacitor!
