Right channel had picked up quite a hum and I couldn't close the box
My soldering isn't up to par yet and it hissed and popped at the slightest movement. I'm much happier with second build and already planning on what to change for a third one.
Hi everyone. I've ordered and received all the parts to build this amp and am ready to get started soon. This will be my very first DIY project...which is exciting.
A few questions...can anyone recommend a good order for the assembly - meaning an order where I can test things along the way with a minimal amount of risk of damage? Also, will the length of wires I use greatly impact the sound quality? What I really mean: if it looks like a rat's nest, but all the connections are fine, am I still ok? Is there a big difference in using an all-metal enclosure vs the copper plate attached to a wooden enclosure like a cigar box?
