A test team :)
We’ve found that as time has gone on, the batches of heatshrink have been quite variable in their thickness and malleability. Please use your good judgement to apply 1 or optionally 2 layers as you think will work best, and use some tape or other material to shim it into place.
Thank for the report. We are currently investigating whether some kits ended up with slightly undersize female blade terminals. If your terminals don’t fit you can just solder them the traditional way per the V1.6 instructions, paying attention not to overheat the switch while soldering. We will be offering make-up kits for any affected customers that would like the correct size and don’t want to solder (just contact the helpdesk at email@example.com).
The comments on build guide steps are very limited in nature and intended for short simple tips and gotchas.
If you have any questions about your build please post them in the ACA Kit 1.6/1.8 discussion thread where the communication can be much richer.
Hi Clay. Please post your question and images in the ACA 1.6/1.8 discussion thread (linked below) for a detailed response. Sorry for any confusion about where to best post questions.
Hi Puma, please ask this question in the ACA discussion thread (linked below) for a detailed response.
That’s correct Bob. Positive out from the boards to ground. From the Amp Camp Amp article:
We will note that Common-Source operation intrinsically inverts the phase of the amplified signal, and so we have reversed the polarity of the output terminals to account for that.
Each resistor has a tolerance marked on it, and they should be within that tolerance. See https://www.arrow.com/en/research-and-ev... for how to read the tolerance value, and what color indicates which tolerance.
Chachara: Correct. Cut a length from the heaviest gauge wire and strip the insulation off.
Zhud - Please see photo 2 in step 1 for the component BOM.
Thanks for the feedback Evan! We’ll make a video to demonstrate for other builders. Appreciate you taking the time to post this.
