"how ironic, I am just starting my next build and am going to use a Gitty Electric Delta pick up w/ harness V/T set up and was doing research to confirm how I will secure the pick up. Anyway, the ironic part is I came across this picture of yours and…"
"OK, I've used something similar, but with a lot lower wattage, more like 1w with a LM386 board. To be honest with you I doubt it is a 15w circuit. Pic won't blow up, maybe you have some specs or module # that is in the circuit. Do you have…"
"Paul is right. Speakers rated in the realm of three digits (i.e. 100-300 watts) need higher powered amps to drive them into their "sweet spot" of operation. I had a client ask me to use his 300 watt car speaker cabinet to make an amp with…"
"Way finder, does the 20w amp have different ohm output jacks? If so have you tried them? Do you have a multimeter to test ohms of cab, or is cab marked with it's ohm rating. Even with a very poor matched amp & cab you should have a fair…"
"If you have a amp that has a 8ohm 5watt output. You would want one speaker rated at 8ohm and 5 to 20watts. It could be 50 or 75watts and be okay as long as the ohms are the same. You could run 2 speakers rated the same in parallel or 2 speakers of…"
"The watt rating is what the speaker can handle. 20 watt speaker will handle 1/2 to 20 watts without trouble.
Large wattage speakers like 600watts are most likely 16 to 32 ohm speakers and would sound pitiful with a 2.5 watt 8ohm amp running through…"
"To cut down the tinny quality, add a tone pot across the input... 500k pot and .047uf cap should work fine... Wire per standard guitar instructions, Or you can put a .022uf cap across the input Jack... Different value caps will have different…"
"Ian, I just added a video of my hacked Danelectro Honeytone driving my 4X12. You reminded me of this amp I built a while back, so I had to make a vid of it & I wanted to do a digital /analog test also. Check it out, the Dano is about 1w & it…"
" Thanks for the advice Scott. I just ordered a few of the line out jacks. Switchcraft 13A, if I can remember correctly. I also, think I have found my next project after I build my Tone Monster kit. I found a tube amp kit I'm going to…"
"The one I talked about was a stereo jack so I could use headphones or a line out, but they also have a mono jack with shunt on that same page.
These are so much easier than wiring in a switch or electronic cutout circuit."
"Hey Ian, it's EZPZ. What this mono jack does is interrupt & direct the signal to another speaker. So with no jack installed your regular setup works, when jack is installed signal is now transferred to your 4X12. OK, the ground is common…"
