17 V/10 A Switch-Mode Power Supply

For the active multimedia subwoofer

17 V/10 A Switch-Mode Power Supply
This compact stabilised power supply was specifically designed to obtain the best performance from the recently described subwoofer that forms part of our Active Loudspeaker System. It produces the ideal supply voltage of exactly 17 V, is capable of sourcing up to 10 A and has an excellent efficiency.In the article for the active subwoofer we already mentioned that there were two choices for the power supply: the usual combination of a transformer, bridge rectifier and smoothing capacitor, or a stabilised 17 V supply. We promised to publish a design for this in the near future, and here it is.
