Plate Amps
01/19/10 at 14:26:26
 
Hey guys, just a question for those of you that have used plate amps, where have you installed them? the best plate sub i can find to suit the drivers i have chosen is 9.5"x 9.5" and wont fit into the triangle at the begining of the horn.
I was planning of installing it into one of the sealed sub chambers, would this affect things too much?

Drivers are 150W RMS @ 8ohm (10" PA drivers from same store as amp)
AMP 600W RMS @ 4 ohms... should do the trick after i wire my drivers in parallel down to 4om

Many people build a separate box to put the amp in.

I will haft to side with Lin. The amount of vibration may not be enough to do damage right away but over a period of time you will prolly wind up with some loose solder joints. I personally build the amp its own enclosure and sometimes use a small computer fan to keep the heat sink cool. My friend built a small enclosure for his amp and then attach it to the back of a WO with a rubber gasket. He has had no problems so far(going for about two years now). I not saying you can't do it I just would not recommend it. My 0.02.

As Openly Baffled said, but some of us use a rack of equipment to control a simple sub-style box, externally.

You only need two cables going into your box if you do that.
