Going to try to make this the amp for my bike stereo. Good luck, self.|
hmmm... not using the T-Amp after all?
i have the t-amp for right now... going to implement this when i figure out how. btw, i have two normal t-amps and one super-t... they have the same power, but the super-t gives slightly stronger bass. don't need that for the bike system. i like the sound of the T, and it'll usually be sufficient, but i can bridge these little chips and get at least double, maybe triple, the output wattage. i may be making a few versions of this portable audio system... one might need a trailer. ; )
y'know...... i'm now thinking of another design.... make a narrow, self-contained speaker/amp box that fits inside the triangle... it'll be weighted well, on the bike, have plenty of support there, and i could make it slim enough to fit between the legs without brushing. hmmmm.... how to put together the housing......
That's a design I've been wrestling with, in my head-wise, since I joined SCUL.
I gave up on it.
I'm going to pick up a T-amp. I'm picturing housing the amp and battery together in a plastic case with wires going out for the speakers and IPod (duh). It's the speakers I'm trying to figure out now. I'll just fork-mount all this. Maybe get some baskets designed like the battery basket I have and hoseclamp them on the fork.
These chips from National should be a lot more efficient both power- and weight-wise. You can have a sweet system!
thanks for the tip! if they don't work out.... i ... don't know where you live.
SOME of us use an XM MyFi and/or various iPod models to get the job done ;)
ya ya, i have an iRiver as the source, but what fun are earphones compared to rockin michael jackson through the square!
so many devious things to do with security cameras....... mmm, security.
did you test/do you know the battery life of the T-Amp on AA's? I may just invest in NiMH AAs which will greatly reduce weight.
i don't know... but i do know that AAs can't give at much power in a moment as the 12v. you can hear the difference when you turn up the stereo. i'll show you if you want.
thanks. I'm curious, yeah. Although if the difference is between speakers for everyone and speakers for oneself, I may just go with the AA's.
If the sound is good enough for me and I can get, say, 6 hours out of the AA's, that's what I'm going to do.
