With all the cool amp projects going on this forum, I dug through my inventory of bits and pieces and found 4 amp boards which can turn out to be a decent project. I need a lot of help and walkthrough this amp project. This would be the first amp project where it was not just plug and play. It's still easy, and can be expanded upon a lot. it's cheap (I paid 40$ for 4 modules), so can go up in smoke if required, but would prefer not to.
These modules are very old (hence the cheap price) and would be easily left in the dust compared to newer amps, but for the price and the fact that I get to learn how not to electrocute or burn my house down, would be worth it. Of course all the paraphernalia that goes along with building an amp would cost a lot more than the amps themselves, but let's get started.
I want to go for an 8 channel amp, housed in the same chassis, powered through one IEC switch/fuse. Next steps, add in soft start/speaker protection and add in volume control for all 8 channel (analog or digital) - it has a input block and can be controlled by a micro-controller - once the basic amp is working, i would like to explore those options. I am not aware of all that is possible, so if there is something that can be tried, i would like to try.
Also, please assume that I do not know even the basic safety principles - so please highlight whenever there is something to be aware of. I can and did watch a lot of youtube videos (but they are no substitute for education / lab/hands-on work) and I trust this group far more than any you tuber.
