  • ACA build

    Just finished my Nelson Pass Amp Camp Amps. At only 6 watts per channel I really have to crank up my pre while listening to the Docere speakers.

    They sound pretty good though.

    Very cool -- You should post some photos of your own. The DIY build thread makes it look like a fun project.

        Very sweet John. Nice Job.
        Do you know if any other of Nelson's diy designs are available in kit form with all that's needed?

                  For me it is plenty of power since I don't crank it up.

                      Usually in the 70s but every once in a while in the 80s.

                        Ok I'm at 85 db for most of my Nashville Audio society meets
                        Do you think I might have enough headroom?

                          I have not seen other Pass full kits. But you can find part kits in http://www.tech-diy.com/Store/CloneKits.htm the boards can be found in DIYAudio (either the store, group buys or the swap meet). Being class A, the most expensive part will be the heat sinks and PSU.

                          I have the boards and transistors for a F5, now I need to get a good price on a case...

                            That would be tough to say. It also depends on how dynamic the music is. The other thing is that I always use a sub crossed at 80 so the main speakers don't have to work that hard. This makes it easier on the little amps.

                              Well, I tried watching Oblivion with these amps and they don't have enough gain. Still good for listening to music at low levels.
