@bwshockley    beautiful work! love the clean look, really well done.

Wow nice job! Looks very clean. Any pictures of the inside?

The wood shell is indeed very striking. Very nicely done.

That said, I am surprised you are not having issues with heat build up inside the enclosure. There appears to be little to no ventilation for the inside parts, particularly the MOSFETs. What did you end up biasing them at?

You might consider getting a thermal probe and measuring the inside temp to see what kind of heat build up you are reaching. I fear your amp may not last long buttoned up quite that tight.

Check my signature for a link to a build gallery.  There are a few there.  I'm on travel right now, but when I get a chance, I'll take more of the internals.

I biased the MOSFETS around 240mV, power supply is set at 27VDC.  I was also concerned with heat buildup, but I think my very thick AL plate has enough thermal mass to keep things cool for the durations I am running the amp, and maybe the ability to dissappate the heat as well.  I will definitely keep my eye on it though.  I can always add some vents in the rear if need be.

Hi all,

here's my balanced Bijou (not really great casework, but considerably better than my previous attempts):

looks rugged :)

The first word that came to mind is, epic.

 

I like how you mounted the transformers at the back, it's one way to lower the profile of the whole thing. How's the back panel supporting the weight of these?

 

The whole thing has an industrial look to it. I sure would not mind moving this thing around! It's not ugly, it's rugged. I think it's a great casework.

i really like the way you set your build up. it looks quite nice. balanced bijou must sound amazing beerchug.gif

Thanks for the kind words guys :)

 

@KimLaroux,  I had to mount L-brackets to the back panel, and back feet are mounted to those brackets, so that trafos are not over-balancing the whole thing. 

 

@kchapdaily, yes, it does sound amazing. beerchug.gif

Where does the input come from? Preamp?
post #8802 of 9591

Funch, input is from a dual-mono TPA Buffalo II and IVY IV

post #8803 of 9591

Behold! The Leatherface!

 

 

Nothing special on the internals.

 

 

I hope that now I'll have enough time to case up my Dynalo.

I like the old school loo, GJ RudeWolf!
post #8805 of 9591

really nice setup
