I have needed something to do for awhile.. a project of some sort. well i needed a amp for the bedroom rig and had no money.. so i bought a sonic impact amp from think geek and for some reason it only charged me 22 bucks + ship, when it was posted 34.99, so great deal for me... Hooked it up when it came in, sounded great.. my homemade PS wasnt enough power so i happen to have a 13.5 volt 14 amp stand alone Ps i used to use when i was into CB's years back.. cut the cord and plug off a wall wort that didnt work and bingo!!! plenty of power... that works great. no distortion like when i used the underpowered supply first.. so i found a project box and went to Good ol radio shack for some parts... did the project last night. it still works so thats a good sign.
went to binding post, separete power switch w/blue LED power light.. at this point i just left the original volume pot inside the case glued down as i dont know how to bypass it.. I stuck with the pcb mounted audio input because i couldnt find any insulated rca panel mount jacks.. and also installed a new power jack, i just hooked it onto the battery power wires beings the stock one is pcb mounted and this wont use batteries anymore.. the box is small... about 3" x 4" x2" high nice and compact aND the LED even after i installed a resister is very bright.. that looks really cool at night... anyways here are the pictures for anyone interested in modding one.
I plan to have a guy i know make a custom logo/name out of vinyl sticker like the kind you get for your car, SO ANY SUGEGSTIONS ON A VERY SMALL GRAPHIC OR NAME LET ME KNOW..
