Intro: Great Little Amplifier
Today i have for you the iPhone Amp.
I was going to Make it using an Altoids Tin. But Knowing That They are so many out there
I wanted mine to be a bit Different.
So I Decided to use Wood. Not Just any Wood But Real Hard Wood Red And Yellow.
I Must Thank Mr CTX 1985, His Instructables Gave me the inspiration to Build mine. Thanks Mate.
So You will need
Female panel mount jacks 2
Amplifier .. i got all the parts from www. adafruit.com/products/1552
Rechargeable Lithium Battery 1200 mAh 3.7v
3.5mm Jack panel mount
Router,Drill Press, Drill,Table Saw,Sander,Solder,Heat Shrink tubing,Hot Glue Gun,Alligator Clips,
The Amp is 7 Inches Wide Base, 5 Inches Wide At the Top,1 Inch Thick, And Very Hard
Mark Directly on the wood The Locations of the Parts,
By doing this You will Save Time Later..
I used The Drill Press To Cut The Holes For the Speakers, Then the Router To Cut The Back For the Battery,Cables
Charger,Amp, and the Other Parts,
Then i Drilled The Side For the Switch,And Jacks. Please take Care Doing this Step.
Note..... Cut The Wires A bit Longer Than Normal.
After All the Wood Working is done Clean the Wood
Now The Fun Begins Do all the Soldering Installing Each Piece At the Time
But DO NOT Make the Final Connection Until You TEST That All is Working Fine.
NOTE.... The Switch has 5 Terminals
They are From L To R.....While Looking At the Back of the Unit. LED - , C1 , N01, NC1,LED+
Connecting the Wires.
LED- Goes To -LOAD On The Charger And Ground on the Amp
LED+ And N01 To Vcc on the Amp
NC1 to + Load on the Charger
The Wires from the 3.5 mm Jack R,L & GND two wires here.. Right Goes to Amp R+
Left Goes to Amp L+ And Ground two Wires Go to Amp L- , R-
The Wires From The Fem RCA Jacks L & R Go to the Blue Connector + And -
The Cables from the battery Go to BAT Terminal on the Charger
Hope You Like my Build. it was fun and Challenging.
