This is supposed to be a helpful Q&A & discussion forum, not a resume posting forum. Waddup?
I do apologise. Switch Mode Power Supplies and Class D amplifiers are a subject that interest me. When this amplifier was mentioned here and elsewhere the first reaction of most was to point and larf at the claimed power ratings. I don't really have any problems with that, the claimed ratings, it is obviously designed to do what you claim.
Elsewhere others have asked questions about bass use, using the separate channels for different sources and damping factor. I have got another post in moderation here at the moment. I think I'm being checked so I don't post rude pictures. I've tried to answer those questions on the basis of what I understand and can see about the product.
I don't mean to frighten people off I'm just suggesting where there might be issues that they may need to consider. I don't think I've managed to do a 'sky is falling down'. Just suggested that for some applications mileage may vary. You, as the designer, will know better.
It may be the case that you will get customers experiencing some 'issues'. If they know about the possibility in advance and how to approach and solve the problem then that's a happy customer, or at least one who might not throw their hands up in despair and slate the product.
I suppose it might look like I am showing off but I have spare time and some tools and know a bit. If I am wrong then I am wrong. If I am partially right then there are caveats that people may want to be aware of. Since Peavey is letting people 'try' before committing and the amplifier is going to keep most people happy then that should be cool.
1) No. I could probably roll my own, although it would be a pipe dream.
2) As suggested not intentionally. If I am or do go overboard then slap me.
3) Like I say, I know some things.
4) I didn't realise there was a competition.
Oh, it's not a resume. I'm unemployable.
