i want to build my own amplifier for my car to power my sub. i would a 300 to 600 watt rating any ideas? Answered

I have a small background in electronics and i would like to build an amplifier for my car to power my subwoofer. i am having trouble coming up with a schematic that would work. i would like to accomplish 300 to 600 watt rating and i would like all solid state components if possible. i dont care to much about size as long as it fits in my escort. and i dont care to much about cost either do you have any ideas?


Designing a power amp from scratch with only a small background in EE is not easy at all. I've worked as a professional EE for 25 years, and doing power amp design still freaks me out ! Better find a decent off the shelf design, or a kit - Velleman do a really nice amp like that for about 22 dollars. I know, because I bought one last week :-)) Steve

I would be really concerned that it would end up turning your music into terrible quality. The tolerances on audio equipment are pretty tight.

 300 to 600 watts would make you go deaf.
