Fun stuff to play around with. What I dislike about the TI board it doesn't seem very capable, multi channels at low power and of what quality... and all on the same board :( Probably an easy enough way of making a cheaper surround system for a PC though.

I guess you plan on building a few subs with the kicker modules... bandwidth to 200hz lol. If you got enough of them cheap enough, maybe you could look into massacreing one of them towards full range application, but I wouldn't expect too much.


"I have had buyers use these and make their own cases, make a multi channel amp."... multi channel system from 10 to 200Hz lol. Could be well worth ripping into these if you have some test and measurement equipment to go along with it.

Cheers

Just don't be silly and make it a point to test the protection circuitry like some do in their great wisdom.

Most important thing is to make certain of the polarity of your power wires, everything after that is icing.

Highly worthwhile to build the best supply you can for it (obviously nothing from coldamp). Start off with cheaper parts/designs for it and go from there as you learn what's what, plan of revising it numerous times if you really want it to be something good.

Nice clean wiring etc... always always use solide connections, don't be the kind of wizard that tests a 2$ speaker with a 200$ amp module that's wired up with jumpers and alligator clips and then try dragging it across the floor. (people have actually done this and then "It blew before I ever got to hear it").... common sense works better.

Treat it with just a little respect, do your homework on how to wire it and what goes where, test your supply before you hook the module up to it, triple check everything.. it'll last you forever!

Just take your time with it and do it right. Swap "hope" for some good planning, it tends to work better, and then you'll see a whole new world :)
