Back doing more Audio!

I think I went lazy for a bit there with my blog posts? Sorry guys !

So back to posting and doing hobby stuff.! Id have to be honest, I’ve been spending lots of time in eagle cad, and learning thermal designing.

Currently I’m working on a SMD amplifier deisngn that uses 24x IRF630 fets in smd format. The goal is to build a small class a 80 watt amplifier using all smd devices. The hard part ? Learning and researching and testing board designs that work with removing heat from the fet.

In this pic below there are a few ways to do this. The top one i discovered after i ordered my test pcb from jlcpcb. Oh well its 12$ for a test that might work or won’t work. The good thing ? Smd parts arw easy to remove and re-use..

Network cabinet installed!

Its messy! But i had limited time. 1 hour window as the wife and kid went out shopping. Perfect tile to turn everything off and move it up into the cabinet..

I kist say it went smoothly! No issues and all up and functional now. Next step is to get it cleaned up, wire in the 12v fans and install new fans in this stupid annoying USG-Pro-4.. frustrating how a company can sell this unit for 400+$ and put 1$ cheap crappy fans inside!
