Design and Applications of a Multi-Channel Power Amplifier
In the following material you will read about the evolution of a 6 channel power amplifier, its reason for existence, its design, applications and benefits. In the past, the number of amplifier channels available in one chassis has been dictated by the needs of the home market and has had little to do with the practical requirements of the commercial audio community. We need to understand the mechanics that make the multi-channel amplifier a practical concept as well as the limitations incurred when attempting to accomplish such a feat. Additionally, I chose this forum to pass on some of the tips and tricks that I have collected in my years of designing amplifiers. These tips apply to all forms of amplification and are not restricted to any particular channel configuration.
