Thank you all for your quick and thorough responses. They all helped me to get my brain moving in the right direction again.

Flohmann, I like the idea of going with a design where I can easily swap out boards to get a new amp. Takes the pressure off of my initial choice.

You rightfully plugged it. I somehow missed that build guide. You did a fabulous job with it.

Tungsten, I think this is the way I'm going to go. You all convinced me. I'll save the more modular BA and M2X designs for future builds.

jmpyoung,

Here's another plug, if you want to get more ideas brewing...

Enjoy the ride ,

Poseidon, I did notice your post. That is quite a beautiful beast you built. It did get me thinking that adding a 12V trigger would be a nice quality of life thing to add. This being my first build, though, I think I'll keep it simple - shoot for building a solid, quality amp with no people, electronic components, or speakers dying in the attempt.
