Default ACA with Korg B1

Its not too much of a squeeze, most challenging issue is fitting the volume pot to a 10mm thick front panel. It does make a very neat integrated and I haven't experienced any heart or vibration problems. I do use separate power supplies for
the Kong and the ACA, mainly so that I can turn the ACA off and leave the Kong on constantly. In my case a single source amp is fine...tried to attach images but failed miserably. It all fits in a 2U ACA Dissipante chassis

Thanks Gary. Yes, definitely looking into that premium thread. Thanks also dweightman. Ill probably do a very ventilated perforated enclosure like my AlephJ. Perhaps add an internal heat shield to segregate the Korg.

Cheers

Default Keratherm Brown

I purchased some Keratherm Brown insulating pads as they were readily available in the UK. However, they are not easy to use because they are so, so thin (overall thickness 0.27mm with the plastic protective sheet being 0.02mm thick). I just can't seem to peel the sheet off.
Looking further into this product, it is also inferior regarding its' thermal conductivity, only 1.4 W/mK compared the the Keratherm Red 6.5.
Wondering if anyone has successfully used the brown or whether it would be best for me to get some mica and paste instead?

Keratherm Red is only one which you can use, as better than mica + goop

Thanks ZM,
I was afraid that might be the response.

Hi Tony,
Thanks, I'll check out Kapton tape.

for ACA, mica is mooooooooore than adequate

take in account that (most) FW amps are having exactly that

Keratherm is really needed only when you're approaching 35++ W of heat per device

Here's an idea; Since Keratherm is so thin, it may help to prepare the mating surfaces by making sure there are no sharp edges or protrusions. Light sanding with very fine sandpaper on a flat surface may be all that's needed to prevent pinched spots.


Edit: And I agree with ZM. Mica is perfect for ACA. That is what I used in my ACA.

Thanks guys,
Mica will work for me.
Found a TO-3PL package size (29 x 22mm) that should do the job but I am confused by the description 'mica insulation sheet.....) then down the page, Material-plastic. ???
Thought it best to ask as I don't want to get it wrong again.
Also any special requirements regarding the type of insulating compound?
This all new to me.
Graham
