I have this physics project and we can do whatever we want for it. I'm thinking about making an amp, but I have no idea how to go about this. I don't need anything fancy by any means. I was thinking of a combo amp, single channel, maybe 5 watts and I'm undecided on whether or not it will be a tube amp. Could anyone link me to resources where I could find the information I would need to build an amp like this? Thank-you.
EDIT: I live up in Yellowknife, NT and this needs to be done by the 23rd so ordering isn't an option.

if tube....

www.ax84.com


if transistor....look up the 'ruby' or 'little gem', or something like that.


both are good projects.

here: http://www.runoffgroove.com/ruby.html that is for the ruby amp.

Go get a P1 kit at AX84.com. If you're doing it for a physics project, they have a big writeup on the theory behind it...good stuff, should help you write or present or whatever...

I should have added that I live all the way up in Yellowknife and I need to have this all done by the 23rd so ordering is not much of an option.

Sucky. Go solid state then, you can pick up all the stuff at a Rat Shack or something... too much "infrastrcture" for tube stuff.

So the Ruby would be the way to go? I've also been doing some reading and I was wondering if I need a chassis and if the chassis has to be metal.

You could probably breadboard a ruby. if you have a chassis, yeah, it should be metal.

Sorry if this sounds dumb, but what does breadboard mean?
And thank-you for your help.


No problem. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2734155

It's a way of connecting things so that you can build an electrical circuit w/o having to solder anything.

Ahh, thanks a lot . Does breadboarding have any advantages or disadvantages over soldering? I'm only asking because I'll most likely be able to get to a soldering iron.
