    I'm developing a new Bass Amplifier - evolving the existing.

    The general idea is a great analog pre-amp (I have new one developed)
    and mate it with a very high power, transparent, light, reliable
    design (I need that). I think I can get a switching power supply to
    work well.

    I'm looking for a qualified "venture inventor" with time and talent to
    take an existing MOSFET amp design - 250 watt @8 - and design a 750
    watt amp. I the basic schematic, and think mosfets just get added in
    parallel to multiply the power, and of course the power supply has to
    be tripled too. A fan is a given need.

    I provide the case, preamp, switching power supply (I actualy need
    help there too), assembly, marketing, distribution, sales - and need
    someone to do the power amp (Watts that you say?).

    The best person will be someone who has done it before, and knows it's
    a "simple" job using off-the-shelf parts, properly mated. This person
    would ideally be very good electronically, with music as a hobby,
    willing to work for peanuts on protoypes, to be paid long and slow as
    the market is developed and units are sold - kind of a venture
    inventor.

    Any one interested?
     
  2. What's so "great" about it?
    Unlikely. Your asking for 3 times the power into the same load
    impedance, you will probably have to increase the voltage ratings of
    most the components, specifically the output devices.
    The pro amplifier market is completely saturated. There is no way you
    are are going to compete.

    Your post tells me, with all due respect, that you are pretty much
    clueless on this. Look dude, I am familiar with this stuff, your wasting
    your time. Hint: I designed the equipment here

    If youre going to get anywhere anytime you need to face some facts. So
    here goes.
    ok, tell us whats new about it, whats evolved? From the rest you
    write, it sounds like just another standard amp. Either:
    1. This kind of stupid bullshit gives you a zero credibility rating.
    Youre talking to engineers here not morons.
    or
    2. Theres something new and evolved about it you havent told us, and
    I've misunderstood some of your comments. Please tell us.

    Sorry to be rude but I really dont go for bs like this. Better you
    sort your act out now than later. Bitter pill dispensed.

    so you wont be providing it?
    the only person youll ever get from a post like this is someone whos
    never done it before, might manage it somehow, but wont properly
    understand reliablity issues, leading you to major grief downline. As
    well as a non-optimised solution, which is little use for commercial
    production.

    yet you said this was a new evolved thing?
    how would that make a difference?
    hahahaahhhaaaaaaaaa. Monkeys would do that.

    If you were a well paid lawyer would you do that on someone elses wing
    and prayer? No chance. Tron eng is a well skilled and well paid thing.
    If you want someone to work without pay youre going to have to offer
    someting else of value, not cheap promises from someone who makes
    these errors and wants to make yet another amp for a saturated market
    (I'm taking Kevins word for that bit).

    no. Now you'll complain Ive been rude here, but the only way youre
    ever going to get anywhere is address the points I raised. Engineers
    are not idiots, dont treat us/them like such and expect to get
    anywhere. So its back to the drawing board for a new busines model.

  4. Well, he sent me a reply post, with the view that my comments were a
    personal insult. Part of my jive was:

    Marketing amps has little do with facilities and quality. How much money
    do you
    have to advertise? How about $20k just to get started. What about
    warranties? Do
    you think that retail outlets will deal with a loner with no backing?.
    What
    about big name endorsements? It just aint gonna happen mate. The system
    is just
    too involved now. Ideas are worthless. Its the infestucture thats
    important.
    Yep. It takes a wise man to know and take good advice.

    Indeed.

    Fwliw There are limited ways round some of those issues for some
    cases, but theyre unsatisfactory for most things. I'm thinking there
    of ebay for very low volume production specialist items - not relevant
    for ampman.

    Yes, its funny that. When the wise man points at the moon, the fool
    looks at the finger.

    For the OP I aplologise for being rude about it, it was more cos I was
    in a bad space yesterday than anything else.

    Its nice to be back.

  6. I wonder if it's the same bloke who posted the same request here last
    year?
