There are some high quality DIY amps out there. It seems the most expensive part of the finished amps are nice enclosures, high quality connectors, etc.
Here is a good example with Neurochrome ampshttps://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=171798.0
Now if we build speaker cabinets from scratch wouldn't it be a good idea to build that speaker enclosure just a little bigger and put an amp into that cabinet?
It would save cost and it would make sure the cable from the amp to the speaker is short.
I understand from Danny that he is not a fan of active speakers with each driver having a separate amp because of the technical difficulties. And that is not what I have in mind. "My" idea is just putting the power amp electronics into the same enclosure with the speakers and then use a passive crossover like now.
I know it's important to have the correct volume for the drivers. The extra space for the amps should be separated. I.e. imagine the NX-Studio a little higher with an amp in the bottom.
What are your thoughts about this?
In the moment this is theory for me. I want to build some speakers and I want to build some amps. And now I think about the best way to do that.
