This DIY high performance amplifier boasts 250WRMS output into 4 ohms, 150W into 8 ohms and can be bridged with a second kit for 450W into 8 ohms. Not only does it output high-quality sound, it is also rugged and reliable with all sorts of protection built in. Class-D amplifiers are also far more efficient and generate much less heat than linear Class-A, B and AB designs.

Features include:
• High efficiency
• High power
• Low distortion and noise
• Bridging option for driving 8-ohm load with two modules
• Over-current protection
Over-temperature protection • Under-voltage switch-off • Over-voltage switch-off • DC offset protection • Fault indicator • Amplifier running indicator • Optional speaker protection module (see KC-5515)

• THD+N: <0.01%
• Power output: up to 150W into 8 ohm and 250W into 4 ohm, depending on power supply
• Efficiency: Typically 90% at full power for 8 ohm and 83% for 4 ohm
• Signal-to-noise ratio: 103dB with respect to full power
• Input sensitivity: 2VRMS (4 ohm), 2.2VRMS (8 ohm)
• Frequency response: +/- 1dB, 10Hz - 10kHz
• Power requirements: +/- 40 to 60VDC, 50 to 55V nominal (see KC-5471)

Kit supplied with double sided, soldermasked and screen-printed PCB with SMD IC pre-soldered, heatsink, and electronic components.
• PCB dimensions: 117 x 167mm

Note: The surface-mount IC is pre-soldered to avoid frustration
