High Power Stereo Amplifier in a Jerry Can
Jerry Rolfe sent us this image of an old army water can, which he has retro fitted with our High Power Stereo Amplifier. The amp is fitted to the back with the power lead feeding in through the bottom of the can and the 3.5mm jack lead leaving the top of the can. According to Jerry It sounds awesome!

High Power Amplifiers – Merchant Taylors’ School
We visited Merchant Taylors' School and we saw some amplifiers designed by some of the students using our High Power Amplifier Kits. We were very impressed with the range of upcycled materials that were used to design the case of the amplifiers.

High Power Amplifier Kit – Dan Thwaites
Dan Thwaites sent us these pictures of our High Power Amp kit inside a 1952 German valve radio that was no longer working. He took out the original components and installed the Amp kit. The volume control knob still works as he fitted the potentiometer to it and wired it back to the PCB. The dial faceplate was also originally backlit by two bulbs, so he replaced these with two white LEDs wired in parallel off the board. He also had to extend the power and headphone sockets to fit around the original chassis.

How to use a 2-Way Passive Crossover
A crossover is the name given to a circuit that splits an audio signal into separate frequency bands. This allows different frequency bands of the output from an amplifier to be sent to different speakers instead of all being sent to one speaker.

Question:

Hi How would you recommend attaching a bluetooth receiver to this circuit? And if i can attach a bluetooth receiver how would i be able to attach the receiver to the same power supply as the amplifier? Thank you.

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Tuesday, 7 February 2017

    Hi Sam, We don’t currently sell a Bluetooth add on module, off-the-shelf modules do exist though and should come with instructions for connecting to an amplifier. However we do stock a Bluetooth amplifier which would be a better option, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/c2160-bluetooth-stereo-amplifier-kit.html

Question:

Hello my question is in connection with a previous question i noticed you said the product should be back by the 20th of December and i just went to buy this product and it says it is out of stock please tell me you will have stock soon.

Answers:

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Wednesday, 11 January 2017

    Hello Jack, when the question was asked back on 20th of December it was the power supply that was out of stock. This time the issue is caused by the high powered amp kit components and PCB. We are awaiting an order for the PCBs and we estimate that the kit will be back in stock early February.
