FirstWatt F5


I've attached the back panel layout designed with front panel express software.   Feel free to use the file, no warranties come with the file.
You'll have to arrange the holes where you want them, and change the diameters to suit your needs.  The panel is 17"x 5.5", it includes holes for the rca jacks, binding posts, switch, IEC with fuse holder.

I've also attached the side heatsink panel drill panel.  It's not quite to size yet.  Still have to measure a few things up.

I might work on the bottom panel, that's not as critical, but I do hate drilling out holes, and getting things lined up.

You'll find the software at Frontpanel Express needed to open these files.  

I've picked out a case from modu hi-fi 2000.  They'll be able to drill out the case.


More progress to report...

PSU done - ~ +25v / ~ -25v
1 channel connected - need to bias it.
1 channel left to drill & tap

Whew, finally the amp is done.  Ok, just need to add speaker binding posts.

YouTube video below...enjoy!



Here's the initial audio test hooked up to desktop speakers, and an IPOD.

F5 initial audio test



The F5 is under some repair, I initially put the ztx450/550 transistors in backwards. 

I'll have it up and running asap.
