Cracker Box Amp has static-looking for suggestions
February 5, 2013
Hi... I just finished building an amplifier, a CrackerBox Amp, from plans from Make Magazine. I hooked it up to my Ipod and the circuit seems like it wants to work except it has a lot of static. However, when I hold one of the arms of the rheostat and hold, in my other hand, the Ipod, it actually works pretty well, with no static. I'm wondering if anyone can shed any light on what might be causing the static. I've posted a picture of the completed circuit and a video of the unit. thanks for the help.
