On Board Amp

#1 Post by Bill Fitzmaurice » Mon Oct 15, 2018 2:08 pm

This on board amp from Parts Express looks good, at a price that makes sense.

https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-au ... h--300-798

It could be mounted on just about any of our full range cabs with minor modifications. With DRs the logical method is on the back, using a small extension box mounted there. It has enough power to drive a pair of cabs, so it would be easy enough to install a 4 pole Speakon on the cab containing the amp and one on the extension speaker. Full DSP that includes crossover, EQ and limiting plus Bluetooth makes this a very attractive rig.

Love that DSP!

I wonder if they are using eGaN FET or MOS FET?

I expect someone to dip their toes in the water and report back :)

No, there's plenty of DSP to achieve a good crossover. But, if you want to drive two speakers with it, you'll need to use NL4 connectors and 2 Pair speaker cable to get the highs and lows to the other speaker.....

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

Read the section of your plans regarding bi-amping.
