Sure Electronics 2x100W TDA7498 Class-D Amplifier Board
Sure Electronics 2x100W TDA7498 Class-D Amplifier Board is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Battery Portable PALast winter I was in need of a completely battery portable PA system to use with a flash mob promoting a community theater show. I own an old set of wonderful Grundig miniature acoustic suspension speakers I once used for my car stereos before you could even buy small boxes for automotive use. I chose the Sure Electronics 2x100 Class D amplifier to run them with everything mounted on a wood frame including a pair of 7AH 12 VDC gel cell batteries. In spite of the cold weather and various venues as large as a 400 seat movie theater the system played the piano accompaniment from a portable compact flash recorder with more than ample volume and great fidelity. Heads turned to try to see where the piano was located! The little amplifier sounded effortless as it drove my inefficient little speakers. The Grundigs always turned heads as they produce way more bottom than their tiny LF driver should do. The amplifier's ability to effortlessly pump lots of current into the 4 ohm voice coil load was a perfect match. The efficiency of a class D audio amplifier is also amazing. After being out all evening, performing at five venues the batteries still had over 90% capacity left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Amp!!I purchased 3 of these as a start to my whole home audio setup (9 more on the way). I would've used the 6 channel variant except it didn't break out the standby and mute controls for each channel pair, they were all tied together; this one has mute and standby controls, so I can turn off each zone independently. Works great for driving 8-ohm in-wall speakers (don't know the brand/type, they were with the control4 system that was in the house before). Running 20volts, (datasheet says max power into 8ohms is around 35W) and they are ear-splittingly loud with no discernible distortion (not an audiophile, just an average user with some experience), I had to leave the gain on low to allow adequate precision on the source's volume control.A few notes:The pcb appears to be a different revision from the one shown, so the following (and the accompanying picture) is about the version I have:-no output screw block for daisy chaining the power, however, it does make it a little bit smaller.-The alternative input for audio are 2 sets of 0.1" holes (4 each: Left, Gnd, Gnd, Right), one behind the other. Great for either a set of screw terminals, or two sets of wires for daisy chaining. (In the picture, they have screw terminals, I added those. They don't come populated)-The screw terminals on the power input are populated (at least on mine), so that made setup easier!-There is no footprint/connector for the volume control daughter board (on the input side). It does, however, make the board a little smaller overall.-The gain switches appear to be different from the silkscreen labels, so don't just assume setting them to medium is medium. I just left the input device volume the same and flipped the switches while listening to determine which ones were what, pretty easy.Lastly, the fan is not on a thermal control, it is always on, even when the amp is muted or in standby, which mine are going to be spending the bulk of their life in. It is a 12V fan, and fairly small current, so you could switch it on externally on when you turn the amp on. I just unplugged and removed it (the amp didn't use the sense line from the fan, so no issues there) because I'm running nowhere near max power and in a well-ventilated case, mounted vertically. Even at unnervingly loud volumes I couldn't feel any warmth at all, however YMMV.Note, the picture shows the amp without the fan because I removed it, the amp does indeed come with a fanTL,DR: awesome amp, found no problems and it is perfect for my whole house audio setup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Little AmpPurchased the Parts Express - 2x100W TDA7498 Class-D Amplifier Board along with the recommended 24V power supply to power my vintage Polk Audio Monitor 10s. I'm using my computer as the source/pre-amp input for my primary multi-media system. I usually prefer to use vintage audio equipment in my music systems (I have a Dynaco ST-70 tube amp as well as several behemoth receivers from the 1970s), but wanted to try one of these tiny chip-amps. All I can say is WOW this little thing is impressive! I was planning to power this with a 36V Mean-Well power supply, but I'm glad I tried the 24V unit from PE (saving $$ ). I adjusted the output up to 27V and the output of this amp is quite loud, with tremendous punch in the lower frequencies, smooth through the midranges and clear and quite airy (not harsh at all) in the upper stratosphere. I'm hooked, and already planning to get another to drive a pair of large end-table sized (circa 1975 Audio Spectrum) 15 inch 3.5 ways I'm in the process of rebuilding (again).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This little amp rocks!I bought this for a project but changed when my wife wanted a speaker system in the living room. I was going to buy a sound bar system because you get speakers, wireless subwoofer, bluetooth and on some Wi-Fi. After researching sound bar's, I realized they are not very good for music. I had an old pair of tower speakers that were hardly used. I put them in the living room along with the TDA7498 amp, an Apple Airport Express. I connected these devices together and BAM! I was able to access and stream my iTunes library, Pandora or any other audio app on my iPhone. The sound of this amp was amazing! I am willing to challenge any sound bar around to see who is the champ, sound for sound. I then connected a Polk Audio DSW MicroPRO 8" sub and now my house shakes with hi-fidelity sound. The hi and meds are awesome, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, there is a manual too.I agree with the over all positive points people have made on this site, I purchased the board from PE and just finished putting together a nice compact little amp for the shop. I notice several people comment about the lack of a manual, PE has the manuals online.. the manual for this item is here:http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/manuals/320-303-parts-express-manual.pdf

Which would work better with this amp and why? 320-314 or 120-055 I'll be using the amp to power 4 Hivi B4Ns and 2 tweeters (undecided on which tweeters). It'll also power a bluetooth receiver (320-351) and a pre-amp (320-6538).

Is it possible to "Bridge" the speaker output of this amplifier. Or, would it harm the amplifier if ONLY one speaker was connected? I'm trying to use this amp with a Digitech guitar preamp and a single 12" speaker.

Asked by: voicecoil
No bridging. It already uses a full bridge to drive the speaker output. No harm (usually) to leave one output unconnected. Just don't drive that input.

I want to put this amplifier in a portable speaker project but I am having a difficult time finding a LiPo battery for the power solution. Do you have a recommendation as to a portable power solution that will render the desire 36VDC for 2x100W output?

Asked by: JagoABN
In answer to your question, LiPo batteries are 3.7 volts per cell, therefore if you were to purchase two five cell (referred to as 5S) batteries you'd be able to have 37.5 volts (really about 40 when fully charged) however you'd need a GOOD LiPo "Balance Charger" in order to charge the batteries correctly. WITHOUT a good "Balance Charger" you will eventually destroy the battery. Also, these batteries are VERY common for use in RC (remote control) Cars, Boats and Airplanes. ANY good RC hobbyshop will carry both the batteries and chargers. You may want to read up on the use and charging of LiPos and there's TONS of stuff on the Internet.

Is the fan really necessary on this amp if it really doesn't put out much heat?

Asked by: Blantto
The amp has the potential for getting hot. Without a fan, the heatsink underneath may not dissipate enough heat.

SW2 is missing on my board.  The 4 solder locations are there, but no dis switches.  Is my board defective or is this an undocumented design change?

Asked by: GThompson
Tech support verified that dip switch SW2 has been designed out of the board and the newer boards no longer have that gain switch.
