Aleph 2 time :)

So it’s been about 8 months ? Or more since I have started with this test project.  Well the last few weeks I have gathered the parts to fire these monsters up. 

The reason for buying the parts and doing a test, is because I’m building the same amplifier “BUT” using SMD parts instead.

 

Tonight, I got a few hours to mount all the devices and then power it up. I did run into one problem tonight. I’m only using a single bridge rectifier and the amplifier requires 2 because of the constant high current from a Class A amplifier.

 

More Aleph 2 Project Updates “BIG-HEATSINK”

Went over to Dad’s shop and did some begging and pleading to borrow one of his monster heatsinks 🙂  This thing is “HUGE”  16″x9″ x 4″ fins 🙂 Going to use it to test my Aleph 2 PCB’s that I bought & test my SMD Aleph 2 project I’m working on.

The Aleph 2 produces a lage amount of heat with 12 x IRFp240 devices and 100watts of Class A Audio Amplification.  More pictures to come !

 

So close with Youtube :P

As we all know i have been doing videos one every week, possibly going to start doing more. Only reason I am doing this,, BECAUSE i love it 😛  I actually love video editing and have been told that the videos are getting better and better 😛 so im continuing. Will i make money ? who knows, if i do then it will go into projects and products to review on my channel.   My ultimate goal would be to buy a few new tools for my work bench and buy some audio kits off ebay / amazon and review and build them and video the process for my subscribers.

 

 

 

New Amplifiers “Aleph 2’s “

In the works, new amplifiers are going to be built. I am still running my aleph mini’s that put out 30 watts rms.

 

My new tower speakers are going to be a little but more power hungry, 30watts isn’t going to be enough. So I ordered a new set of PCB’s for the Aleph 2’s designed by Nelson Pass.. They are a older design but I really love my aleph amplifiers.

I already have the transformers Plitron 30-0-30 @ 650va Toroidial’s & the heatsinks 🙂
