    I got em for free, let me know what amp you need and I can email it. The whole thing is too large to email at once.

    prime, they are pretty detailed but they do not spell out every detail, some stuff you still gotta figure out on your own

    If you get parts from ica, then they will tell you what case to get for your board. Same thing with heatsink.

    You can always just drill/punch out your own boards...thats what I do and it lets me lay out the amp how ever I want it.

    Personally, I think a 2 pill is easier than the 1 pill if your building with transformers.... but if your using lc circuits for tuning, a 1 pill is easier.

    1 pill amps with lc tuning circuits are very easy and cheap to build...you can also build them very small.

    You might want to start by copying a 2 pill....the only added expense is the extra transistor..everthing else is pretty much the same. I personally think it will be eaiser to build if you plan on using transformers.
    Take care

    i do plan on getting the majority of my parts from icamanufacturing...but i figured i would start with a 1 pill since im just a beginner and after that add a pill each time, a couple people said start with a 2 pill and some people said start with a 1 pill so i dont know

    I agree, all the parts are pretty much the same, add 20 bucks to the build and do a 2 pill, once you understand how that works then do a 1 pill, IMO
