For a while now I have wanted to make an audio amplifier, but I haven't really had any good opportunities or means to the end. When I found out about the Mono Audio Amp Breakout from Sparkfun, I started to get exited. Its perfect for what I wanted. It's effective and soldering in the right wire is no more difficult than setting up a regular sound system. Not to mention how great it looks in that laser cut mirrored acrylic case. Enough Talk. What does it sound like?
Step 1: Materials and Tools
1 USB micro jack
2 Potentiometers, not logarithmic, mine are logarithmic and there is a narrow range of control now
2 Mono Audio Amp Breakout Boards
1 3.5 mm jack
8 bolts and nuts of appropriate sizes
Tools(This is what I used, you could probably get away with less)
Helping hands are practically a necessity, but if you are dextrus enough you might slide by without them
Chisel and hammer, Theses come in really handy when I find out my laser cut design wast good enough, which is often.
