    Aren’t you getting any noise? The wooden box wouldn’t insulate it very well…

    • Actually I get a bit of distortion. I need to double-check the wiring. But no remarkable noise unless I touch the inputs. As a toy and something to power a speaker when out barbecuing is pretty sufficient.

        Did you build 2 amps in the box?

        • Hi,
          No, just one mono amplifier.
