The dimensions for NC2500 is:
8.125” x 5.5” x 2.125”

Confirmed from Mike the ratings of the amp adhere to the Hypex ratings of:

700w @ 4ohm
550w @ 2ohm
400w @ 8ohm
(per channel)

Bbfoto can chime in but like the BT2700-2 the NC2500 supports 12Awg speaker wire. It specifically had the more traditional Weidmuller Spring-Cage speaker terminals. So regular 12ga ferrules will work.

On the fuse rating he is simply suggesting the "smallest" rating to get the job done. Start at 40 amps and go up if need be.

That would be quite a feat.. If anyone wanted to send me one to compare, I'd surely do an AB comparison (no pun intended) with a Z150.6LX Zapco on mids and/or tweets and/or midbass as well to put it to an "ear" test. I'm rooting for these little NCores so, it'd be fun.
Not sure I’m ready to share the NCore amp yet..

But I did just snag up this little bitty brute off eBay for a steal...

The B2180:

I’m going to swap out the stock fans for silent noctua fans and send to Biketronics to ensure everything is in tip top shape as well as have them perform input gain adjustment to ~4v.

So give me a couple weeks to a month.. I‘ll put together an easy connect kit and ship the mini punch out for you to demo (if your willing to pay the flat rate USPS).

Easy swap for the Noctua fans. Requires the removal of 6 enclosure screws and 4 Screws for the fans themselves.

The stock fan is 3 pin and the Noctua Fan is 3 pin as well, so no adapter is required. Just gently pull out the stock fan connectors and gently push in the Noctua fan connector onto the fan heading pins.

Stock fans are

EverCool EC4010M12CA:
Noise: 21 dB(A)
Airflow: 5.22 CFM
Power: 0.07A

Replacement fans are

Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX:
Noise: 17.4 dB(A)
Airflow: 8.2 CFM
Power: 0.05A

Stock fans:
259783


259786



Noctua Fans:
259784


259785


Time to send to Biketronics and soon we’ll have a forum demo amp(y)

Appreciate the fan swap tip! My BT4180 is still sitting around but I'll be doing this upgrade prior to install.

My DSP also puts out 8v so I may end up having the gain mod done by Biketronics as well.
