  • Classix II portable build

    Despite the endless winter in the Philadelphia area, I managed to defrost the wood glue long enough to build a pair of Classix IIs. I integrated a 50W amp and battery to make them portable for outdoors, tailgates etc. They sound amazing, and I continue to see why Paul Carmody's stuff is so well-regarded.

    Full build details in the link, but here's a few pictures.

      Is that one of those class D amps? Does it actually make 50 Watts?
      Are 4 screws enough to hold the back on?
      Love the table you have them on, is it a Heywood Wakefield?

        Based on similar threads in this forum, I doubt the amp makes 20watts on battery power, maybe less. Haven't really given them a workout yet but they still get pretty loud. It also came with a 19V 65W brick and it does go a bit louder when plugged in. Once they spend time outside I'll see if they can get loud enough.

        Yeah! I found a pair of those tables in a resale shop, they were a little rough but I got a good price so was jazzed about that. One of a few good finds.
