Rough plans on an SSA 6-channel & more?

Recommended Posts

I am working to expand our amplifier offerings, while staying high quality, somewhat unique, and affordable.

First up looks like a class-A/B 6 channel.  No crossover network, individual gains, 150watts x 6, will keep footprint as small as possible for the design, similar appearance to the current models.  Feeling out interest as it will effect the total amps I put into production.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As a side note, I am considering a 2-channel of the same line, but the demand for 2 channels right now are so low.  Would not really want to build them if they are going to sit for a while.

 

Just curious on any input before I get production going.

Class A/B 150 x6. Sounds like a very adequate amplifier for an 8”,4”, and tweet active setup !!!

2 channels, I know what you mean. Guess I’m the only old schooler that loves them ... Lol 

4 channels seem to be good on the market, wish I could give yours a demo.

might as well make an 8ch instead. with 8 ch you can do a 3-way with sub or a 3-way with high power to midbass or 2 way with 2 subs or 2 way front and rear. more options

I want a 6 channel, sign me up now. The main reason im in between amps right now.

ch 1&2 = tweets or horns

ch 3&6 = mids

 

Will this amp have channel input mode selectors unlike the 4 channel amp?

The market for an 8 channel is out there, but so so so small. :(

Not planning input mode selectors.  For the most part, this will be a pure gain block.

YES! glad to hear this is moving forward. No 2 channel, I would offer a smaller monoblock and smaller 4 channel power and price wise.

A smaller mono is strongly being considered.

Yes, car is under certified for another 3 weeks.  BMW extended the factory warranty to 70k, ours had 67k.  Plastic crap timing guides failed.  It was running fine, but they found some in the oil pump which allowed them to replace the motor.  5k miles before the turbo was replaced.  Can't say I like the gamble of keeping it longer than 3 weeks...

      Due to the purchase of my first real TV, I am venturing into digital to digital signal.  The TV has no RCA outs, so my Dayton 2.1 plate amp couldn't directly mate up with my TV.  With some help of Neal and SDY, there was an option for a converter or amp replacement.  Due to potential latency issues with the signal conversion and possible effect on the quality of the sound, I opted for a new little amp.  So I just ordered the SMSL Q5 PRO as it has optical in, a remote, and RCA out.  https://www.parts-express.com/smsl-q5-pro-stereo-amplifier-usb-optical-coaxial-dac-with-subwoofer-output-2x40w--230-210
      This gives me the ability to still use the plate amp for just subwoofer purposes.  The SMSL will power at 20 watts a tower (which each consists of 4 Aura full range speaks), which is pretty much the same power the Dayton 2.1 plate amp was putting to them.  I will report back when it is set up and I have some listening time on it.

      One of the biggest and most powerful amplifiers ever made. They didn't make very many of these so they are quite rare. one was recently tested by oldschoolstereo.com and made over 12,000w rms between the two channels at 1.6ohm per channel. Here is the link I recommend watching it as he goes into the history of this huge amplifier.
      And here is the manufacturers underrated specifications:
      Output Power at 14.4V and ≤1% THD+N (CEA-2006):
      2 x 2600W @ 4 ohms
      1 x 8110W @ 4 ohms
      1 x 7400W @ 1 ohm
      S/N Ratio: 65dBA (1 Watt, 4 ohms)
      Effective Damping Factor: 6.39 @ 4 ohms
      Freq. Response: 10Hz ∼ 270Hz (-3dB)
      Fuse: 600A internal (external 500A minimum)
      Dimensions: 29.38" x 23" x 6.5" (74.6cm x 58.4cm x 16.5cm)
      Weight: 88 lb.
      Only selling because I'm moving agian and need the extra space. The top beauty/mounting plates are in automotive primer ready to be painted to match your build.
      Condition is excellent. Price is $1500 picked up in the Dallas Texas area, or best offer, don't bother low balling Id rather keep it to be honest. It's only going to gain value considering how rare these amplifiers are getting. I would be willing to ship it if you cover the costs for shipping. Call or text me  for questions: 907-227-8213

      Hello all and thank you in advance for your help. This will be my first build and I'd like to build a new subwoofer for my home audio system. I'm flexible, but would like somewhere around 800-1000W to drive a 12" sub in a ported box, and to do this I plan to spend somewhere around $500 or so. I don't have a great idea of what a realistic budget is, so I'm flexible, just would like to keep costs down.
      I need some help figuring out where to start. Could someone please point me in the direction of some good resources regarding amplifier selection specifically?
      Thank you all.
       
      Quick edit: I'm using an optical connection from my computer to a Yamaha RX-V677 receiver. If anyone has any resources regarding the best connection between the receiver and amplifier, that would also be great.
