I finally had more time to play around with Crown Amp. I decided to CNC a new faceplate that will replace the original Crown one which will make it "look" nicer!
Everything lines up nicely. I like how they arrange the heatsink. Clever engineering.
Heart of the amp. Crown/TI drivecore chip
That's where the first mod is going to take place. We are going to implement a different type of power button and as well as a handy remote 12V trigger :-)
I am going to monitor the max temp the heatsink will go to without the aid of fan and evaluate how to make this into passive cooling.
Also, The blue LED can be annoying so I am going to find out a way to disable that.
More to come...
