Works well

I have used the clean amp and the pam8302a the clean amp is much louder then the Pam one. Though I did partner the pam8302a with the new capacitor for the sound and it is very crisp and clear compared to the clean amp. Only downside is the board is bigger and it’s a bit tricky to get in a good spot had a friend do the install and she prefer the clean amp do to easier installation. Though I like the crisp clean audio over the super loud clean amp.

Essential for Gameboy Color

The 3-watt PAM8403 is considerably powerful; I found pairing it with a 47-ohm resistor keeps it louder than the gameboy color's default, but still comfortable on the ears.
