2x15W at 4 Ohm TA2024 Class-D Audio Amplifier Board Only
Can you provide a link to a power supply that would work with this amplifier board?
The TA2024 is designed to work with a 12VDC power source. Therefore any well regulated 12VDC power supply would work.

Do you carry the Terminal blocks for the board?
I understand that they are now sold by sure as accessories, but I can't find them on this site.
The connections for power, inputs and speakers are on the pc board. If you desire adding terminal blocks, PE carries a wide variety to fit your needs.

What potentiometer works best as a volume control with this board. I've heard anything from 10K to 50K, and I would like to know what works best.
I would use a 10k ohm linear taper pot.

Could this amp run off a PC atx power supply
Are you talking about running it off of the ATX power supply in your computer, or one you just have laying around? I wouldn't recommend running it off of the one in your computer, but if you want to run it off of a spare there shouldn't be an issue. I've run numerous amplifier boards off of ATX power supplies from broken computers without an issue: they're well regulated, (usually) quiet, and have more than enough current for an amp (20A+ is common)

Volume control? Headphone output? On/Off switch?
I would like to use this amplifier to build a pair of active speakers for use with my PC/Tablet/Smart Phone. I would like to add the amenities that come with other "off-the-shelf" speaker systems like an on/off/volume control, a headphone jack and tone controls. Any suggestions?
The TA2024 Class-D Audio Amplifier is a circuit board only and requires a 12vdc @200ma. power suppply to opperate. Turning on / off the power supply is your On/Off switch.The sound source such as tape, cd, dvd audio out, Ipod, mp3 player, etc. will govern the volume. The board does have some features that are explained in the diagram you will receive with it. The more signal you place at the rca input jacks the louder it will play. The unit does not have a volume control built in nor does it have a dedicated headphone output however at 10 watts output power a switching circuit headphon output that cancels the speakers would be an easy install.Good Luck

Would this amp be suitable for a PA?
I want to make a cheapy PA for my truck and I have a few questions, the speaker will be an 8 ohm 25w-ish horn, I plan on bridging the outputs, (can you bridge the outputs, and inputs for that matter?) with one of those handheld radio type mics. I'm assuming I'll need a pre-amp, or could I buy a higher power amp to eliminate the need? Also I see there isn't a volume control, can I add one easily? ThanksPS I want to keep the price down, as I could just buy a cb with PA for $40.
You cannot bridge the outputs on this board. For this project I would recommend the Lepai 2020 amp, also using 12VDC power, which has volume and tone controls, and use 2 speakers. You would need a small microphone preamp, or a mike with built in preamp, if you wish to make announcements.
