Be careful what you wish for....

Speaking of monoblocks, I can't build my second one because between two amps, I only got one of THESE:

Any chance you've got a bag with like a couple hundred of them in there just sitting around?

I could sure use another one.

moving this from a diffrent thread....
I have already done the stereo / monoblock switch on my amps . I included a led indicator which is illuminated in the monoblock position.
does this switch flip both the input and speaker?

a single switch with 2 sets of poles?
this was my thought.
