Output transformer for Class D Amp?
« on: May 05, 2021, 08:20:38 AM »
I have a B&O ICEpower 200ASC that I was thinking about using for the output of a guitar amplifier.

I also have a 500VA Hammond toroid power transformer 120/240:120/240... I'd wire it 1:1.

The purpose would be to maybe "warm up" the sound a bit.

Am I asking for trouble / bad idea?

I would ditch the idea.
The transformer will not do anything to affect or color the sound.
In fact, you may be causing issues with the module.

Agree with JPB - will likely cause problems and no warmth other than a (potentially) burning ICE board. I’d save that transformer for another project!
