Building my own Car Amp

Has anyone ever built their own amp? I'm an electrical engineering student, so I'm well versed in designing/building amplifers, filters, and power handling circuitry. I'm assuming a car amp is a stage to boost power, then filters for each channel, then the amplication of each channel. Is this correct?

Has anyone ever attempted to build their own amp? Are schematics available anywhere?

Thanks for you help.

it will cost more and sound like crap compared to a real amplifier but it can be done.

Wrong... a friend of mine is a EE and is making a home audio amplifier. He has gotten nearly $1000 of components for free (free samples) and has completed the first channel... it sounds like a dream so far.

Josh if you're a EE I recommend waiting until you know exactly how to do it... don't cheat and use someone elses design... wait a year or so and you should have all of the tools you need to design one.

Dude,

I have the knowledge I need now to design and build the amps and filters. The thing is, I'm new to car audio and I'm not sure if it as is simple as just, Filter, Amplify, Output. Thats why i'm looking for schematics, to find out if there is something that I am not considering. Thats why I'm looking for something who's done this type of thing before.

Thanks for you post, its great to know the parts can be gotten as samples!

lmao... that's hilarious... noobs are trying to take your thread...
Mr Sighn: YOU CANNOT BRIDGE A 4-CH amp to 1-CH get over it....
brothaman: you're amp is obviously not hooked up correctly otherwise it would be working!

Keep the posts in your own thread!

Yea, sometimes you have to be tricky to get some of the expensive parts.. .like put dr. in front of your name or order them while you're working for a company and put them under the company's name

I've gotten several parts myself to make a spectrum analyzer for my car. I don't know of any links but if you are seriously interested I could probably get you in touch with my friend. Realize that what he has going is an ongoing project that will probably take several years to complete... this isn't something you can just "put together"

The most difficult part, from my understanding is the assembly... soldering can become quite tricky and one slip up can ruin the entire thing.

Bridging a four channel amp? Simply put it will produce a fast tapping sound-nothing close to music.

And making your own amp won't be bad necessarily, but design flaws could become eminent.
