Some pics of my amp that we are working on...
The amp is made with 3 asx50, and 3 asx125 Icepower amp modules. All are being setup for BTL mode (balanced). The smaller amps will be for the front 3 channel k402MEH horns, and the larger amp modules qill be for the dual 15" woofers in each speaker. Input for the amp will be Neutrik XLRs, output will be Speakons, power will be via 3 Powercon connectors, and on/off will be via 3 power buttons on the front of the amp. We also have 2 LEDs per channel that we will either use to indicate power or maybe 1 watt of output (If I can figure out how to do this). We are powering up the amp this way so we can individually power on or off. The amp will not be done for another 60 to 90 days as we are awaiting the screw type Neutrik XLRs to arrive from Ghent Audio.

Fired up the new amp tonight and it sounds great. Tomorrow I will make a couple of new power cables, and 2 more speakon cables. Then I will use it until I get around to setting up the LEDs.
