Converting Sub Woofer amp to guitar amp? Answered
I have a powered sub-woofer that had a blown speaker and being that I spent the money to get a better one I thought that converting the old sub woofer amp to use for my guitar would be a good idea. I already have something to practice with but making something that can be used for gigs would be great. However, I'm not an avid or experienced electronic wizard and will need the help to complete this project.
Here is the info I have on the amp itself;
OUTPUT POWER 50W (4 ohms,DIN)
THD 10% @ 55Hz
Reproduction Freq. Response 45Hz - 150Hz
Phase Switch 0, 180 degrees
Input Sensitivity (Sub In) 460 mVrms
AC Power 120V/60Hz
Power Consumption 70W (at 1/8 rated power)
Standby Power Consumption <6W
What I do know that I need is a 1/4" mono plug jack and being that the input for the woofer is mono putting that in shouldn't be a problem. I'm mostly concerned about the frequencies that the amp will handle for playing a guitar and speaker recommendations. Plus any other opinions will be appreciated.
I am expecting this to be a clean sounding amp and as it sits will only provide volume. An EQ is planned to be used after this amp is put together and then eventually an overdrive. I'm planning on connecting 2 50W speakers and wondering if I should hook them up in serial or parallel. With the help of my fellow instructabl-ians I will be able to post my 1st submission.
