I checked with digikey and mouser and digikey has it but it looks like you have to buy quantity.
I would call them and see what they could do for you.
I have used both for parts and they have sold to me in singles before but I usually buy large orders of many random parts when I order and it has been a while since I have ordered from them. the worst they could say is no. I think they have a minimum order though. if you had some other stuff you needed or could get on someone elses order. there are ways
I posted the 7382 because that is what is currently in the car. The 7389 is double the output power but the same pin out. I'm sure there are some other things in there that will need replaced but the virtual ground circuit shouldn't be too hard to bypass with a custom one.
Have you tried your local Rat Shack? (Radio Shack). It used to be you could special order just about anything from them. Just ask the one in the store that looks like they know what they're doing. If you ask the zit faced teenager he'll probably tell you if its not on the shelf, they don't have it.
EDIT: Also another favorite of mine is allelectronics.com
depending on your setup, I would say that you could use two cooling fans (they don't have to be big) with one blowing air in the compartment and one sucking air out of the compartment. that way the fans help each other so you can get away with a smaller fan with less power draw overall.
this is assuming that you can make two openings where you have this setup. also for best cooling, you would want a delay circuit that cuts the fans off about 20 or 30 seconds after you turn your car off. that way heat doesn't build up.
on a side note: make sure your speakers can handle the increased power. factory speakers usually can't handle much more than the factory head unit can supply. though you probably have already upgraded to aftermarket speakers.
just my two cents. good luck
Be the change you wish to see in the world
Yeah, the speakers are already upgraded. That's actually the reason I'm needing to upgrade the amp.
The stock amp was perfect for paper cone speakers but when I went to the plastic cone 3-way speakers the amp couldn't push enough power to keep the drivers in check and ended up damaging voice coils on a couple of the speakers. I dissected them and they were physically damaged.
RadioShack has MOST of the stuff I need for my electronics projects but not everything. This amp is a case where RadioShack can't really do anything. The chip I was looking for was pretty specific and they had no idea what I was talking about. 'Flexiwatt 25'... You'd think I was talking german to them.
As for the cooling, I think I can take care of it with a heatsink/fan combination and fresh air. There is room in the back for a small setup and I don't need the system to push much more than it already does so I don't see it ever needing to dissipate the full 80W of heat.
I also use these parts vendors for my own parts needs: http://www.alliedelec.com My sales rep is Sonya Haney, 18004335700. She has gone above and beyond helping me find some rare high voltage ceramic capacitors for my EV battery charger.
