Thanks !! Unfortunately I just popped one of the 100uF 35V capacitors. Gotta love that magic smoke !! I'm hoping thats the only damage I've done, but hey, each component is worth bugger all so if thats all I've done its not an issue. I am confused by the power in connector. v-, G and v+. It would seem that I should have used v+ and G, but not paying any attention, I used v- and G (12v out from a computer PSU). Magic smoke ensued and no sound comes out. The left of the two caps as seen in the photo has bulged, and that's the general area the smoke came out so I can only hope that replacing that cap will solve the issue. To what should I connect the v- connector to though.. I assume its a remote power on signal? I'm over it tonight, but in the morning I'll go down to Jaycar and buy a handle of everything. One of the videos I watched regarding this kit suggested that a 220uF cap would have been more suitable, and thats certainly what it says on the circuit diagram, but he also said it shouldnt be a problem. He used the 100uF cap and the amp worked well. The video I've been watching is below. In his setup, he has 3 wires on the power input. A red, a white, and a blue. The red and white I am assuming are 12v and ground from the PSU? Where does the blue wire go?
