    This audio amplifier circuit delivers up to 200 W of top-class quality for loudspeaker from 4 to 16 ohm. Operating voltage is between 24 and 36 V, max 5 A. The frequency response is from 20 to 20000 Hz.
    Please take special care that the transistors and the IC’s have been fixed firmly and solely one or two separated cooling elements with sufficient dimensions for this purpose (thermal resistance < 1K/W).

    Doing so it is necessary to mount the transistors and the IC’s insulated (with mica washes and plastic nipple). Please make sure before first operation that the transistors and the IC’s really do not have any electrical connection towards the cooling plate! The transistors have to be placed plane and firmly onto the cooling element! It is of extraordinary importance with this high-power amplifier that there is a considerable heat dissipation. The already mounted cooling element should be situated in a well ventilated case.

    200W Power Amplifier Circuit Schematic

    The PSU should be sufficiently powerful, power consumption of the amplifier may increase up to 5A. In case of using an unstabilised power supply. It is advisable to place a transformer of max 28V.

    The amplifier will the show approx. 120W at a 4-Ohm loudspeaker, for it no-load voltage of the power supply will not be to high. If it is desired to use complete power, it is necessary to place a stabilised power supply with approx. 36V 5A. No-load voltage should not pass over 44V!
    The cables leading the current supply and to the loudspeakers should have at least a cross section of min. 1.5 mm^2. The connected loudspeaker have to be equiped according to the high output power and should not have a lower impedance as 4 Ohm! With lower connection impedance and short circuit within the loudspeaker wiring, the transistors will be destructed.

    The amplifier has an input sensitivity of approx. 500 … 800 mV. Therefore, it is possibile to connect directly at the amplifier tape decks, tuners, etc. In case there are connected signal sources with lower output voltage, it is necessary to pre-connect a preamplifier. Then it will alse be posible to connect microphones, etc.

      I made this amplifier last year and it can really deliver 200W of output power. I was able to pre-test the amplifier using electronic workbench software before making the actual circuit. If you want to make your own lay out for the circuit board please make sure that the power tracks are far from the signal carrying ones as it oscillates and may damage the TDA2030 ICs.

    20. You can use BD249/BD250. But anyway this schematic is obsolete and will not put out 200W anyway, or at least it won’t do it without burning the transistors.

    23. Hi, everyone, I have built this amp few monts ago.
      It is realy capable of delivering about 150 to 200 W of RMS power.
      But at frequencyes lower than about 350 Hz it has huge distorsion and it is awful for reproducing good bass.
      Speaker sounds like someone is scratching it (osciloscope can show why it is so).
      Of course it may require some fine tunning of R and C components, but original schematic is quite useles.

      Hi I have assembled this with 2N3055 and 2N2955 plastic version. Theorotically this circuit has to give an output around 144 watts RMS power with 4 ohms speaker. Practically I could get around 120watts into 4 ohms with 36volt 5 amps power supply(+ -20 volts regulated). and 60 watts into 8 ohms load. I have to use 10000uF capacitors for positive and negative power supply. Filter capacitors and bridge rectifier should be close to power transistors and IC. The standing current is quite high around 200mA hence you require a very good heatsink.

        The power supply is very simple. Either full-wave bridge or full wave center-tapped with an input capacitor of at least 47,000uF. Use 6A lead-mounted rectifiers.

        You must scrounge for a suitable transformer or spend in excess of $130 for one from DigiKey or $80 from Newark/Farnell.
