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.
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.
