Suggested Amplifier Modules & PSU’s for those who want to plug & play.
When designing an amp enclosure, one of the prerequisites included it had to be modular by nature. Meaning “one size fits all”. However, this isn’t as easy as is sounds, with such a variety if amplifier modules available a choice had to be made. Class D was the obvious option partly due to their versatility.
Currently there are many class-D amplifiers on the market now, and the best of these are dominating the upper reaches of the high end. As such, brands chosen were purely based on their merit. However as time elapses, this will evolve, for example Purifi Audio is currently on our list to incorporate.

Not limited to the suggested modules, alternative amplification classes are more than welcome.
GSJ Amp enclosures are capable of housing a variety of modules from various Class backgrounds. Though some additional mounting screw holes will be required if you deviate from our suggested Class D modules we’ve designed around.
The heat-sinks are sizable enough for the most demanding of “Power Transistors”.
