Default Twin channel amplifier for the IBU2

My friend Ivano 'Scooter' has released a nice upgrade for the IBU2 boards, a plug-in dual channel amplifier (6+6 Watt) which splits on different channels the engine sound and all other effects. Thus it is possible to connect two speakers, each with its own volume potentiometer, for a 'on the fly' fine mixing of sound effects.
No need for a firmware upgrade: the latest IBU2 boards were already updated to support it, therefore it's just a plug and play matter.

Here is some pictures of the daughterboard, alone and connected to the IBU2. They are available from official distributors in Germany and UK.

Next step currently under test is an update to introduce pre-recorded engine rev up and down during acceleration/stopping (this should be doable through a firmware upgrade) for an even more realistic sound.

Hi I will be fitting one of these to my latest board which I bought just before the pro board came out. Have seen one working of Ians working and it gives another boost to the sound. Means you can turn the engine down and hear the gunfire better.

regards pete
