Prototype enclosure for modern amplifier

Updated: Jul 11

In this video we will analyze DIY enclosure challenges and possible solutions. It may sound strange, but the biggest challenge for DIY projects is enclosure.


For a home project, it is almost impossible to process even mild steel. It is too hard to process with simple hand tools and you need a workshop.


A significant challenge is your final design weight as well. For practical applications aluminum, Plexiglas and plastic are materials that we can process at home or in a small workshop. For small electronic boards, you can get extruded aluminum enclosures for a price below 50 USD including shipment. Typically, somewhere around 30USD including shipment.


A completely different picture is with sizes of 20x30 cm. Prices are rocketing and shipment is about 60-100USD.


We need a different concept.
