What can I make with this kit?
This great amp kit (manufacturer code 2143-JK) is capable of producing up to 15 watts per channel and comes as a stereo (2 channel) system. Get volume and high quality sound from your devices with this 26 part kit. Connects straight into your 30 pin iPod/iPhone so you can listen to your music. This kit comes with a mains powered 12V power supply. An on/off switch, power LED and volume control are built into the kit.

What is in this kit?
Learn about electronics and circuits and practice soldering with this kit. The kit uses resistors, capacitors, potentiometers, LEDs, microchips and speakers. Learn how they are connected in a circuit and get practical experience soldering them. Use the components to create this amplifier and see how they come together in a circuit. The kit amplifies the voltage and current of the input signal with the amplifier integral chip and the potentiometer (or variable resistor) works as a volume control. The signal is then transferred to the speakers which translate it into sound. This kit requires soldering and may require wire cutters.

How difficult is this to solder?
This is a medium level of difficulty to solder, ideal for novices that want to challenge themselves or those with some experience. The finished kit includes everything you need, including two 8 ohm 100mm speakers, a 12V power supply heatsink and 30 pin ipod/iphone connector. You can build your own enclosure (not included) to protect the electronics and make your own audio system.

Will this also charge the apple device it is connected to or is it just the Audio connection via the 30 pin iPod/iPhone Lead.

Asked by: MrHT
This would just be an audio connection, it would not charge the connected device.

Hi, is the volume control done by volume + balance, or by separate volume controls for each channel?
Asked by: wouter batelaan
This is done by a single potentiometer so would be be a master volume control.
