I wanted to build this project a long time ago but I have no time to do it. Today I decide to make a PCB design for it. Unfortunately I do not have any time to make the actual prototype. I will post my design so that anyone can build their own prototype.Continue reading “500W Amplifier from Eliot Sound Products”
2SC5200 2SA1943 Simple Amplifier
If you love to build audio amplifier then you must be familiar with 2SC5200 and 2SA1943 power transistors. They are one of the most used power transistors for power audio amplifiers. While looking for a next project, I found this simple layout on the internet so I decided to make my own version with some few improvements.Continue reading “2SC5200 2SA1943 Simple Amplifier”
Audio Limiter Circuit
A good way to protect your speaker from overloading is by using a limiter circuit. This circuit protects your speaker by limiting the input signal to the amplifier by a certain level.
This circuit uses an IC from New Japan Radio Inc. It is NJM2761 which is specially designed for limiting audio signals. It is designed for powered speaker system to protect the speaker from overloading.Continue reading “Audio Limiter Circuit”
3-band Tone Control with Subwoofer signal Output design
Here’s a 3 band tone control with subwoofer output circuit. Take note that the main output are full range. This is not a 2.1 crossover circuit. It is powered with single power supply so you can use a battery or a simple ac/dc power supply.

TDA2030 35W Bridged amplifier
Here’s a simple amplifier you can build. it uses the popular TDA2030 amplifier IC. It can deliver up to 35W which is good enough for room audio. It is in bridged mode meaning it is using 2 IC with the output of the other IC is 180° out of phase.Continue reading “TDA2030 35W Bridged amplifier”
Simple 2-way crossover circuit using npn transistor
Here’s a simple circuit you can build for your own low power home audio project. It only uses a NPN transistor rather than the most conventional OPAMP versions. It is simple and easy to build using an universal board. It can be powered by 9v or 12v single power supply.

Super Bass Booster
Here’s a simple circuit you can use to boost more bass from your music. It can be powered by 9V battery or a 12V DC adapter. Take note that this is just basically a 1 band tone control with +- 17dB range at 60Hz bass frequency. You need it to connect before the amplifier input. This can’t be connected directly to speaker. The output of this circuit will be connected to the input of your amplifier and the input of this circuit will be connected to your audio source(i.e. mp3 player).
Audio source selector for arduino
Here’s a simple electronic stereo audio selector switch that can be used for arduino. You can directly connect the pin 1, 16, 3 and 18 to arduino for selecting the source. This pin can accept as low as 2V for logic high according to its datasheet so no need for level shifter.
Simple Guitar Headphone amplifier with overdrive and aux input
Here’s a simple guitar headphone guitar amplifier project that you can use for practicing. The headphone amplifier uses a LM386 that can be able output up to 0.7W than can be use also for small speakers. It also has an auxiliary input that can be used to connect your phone or an MP3 player for you to jam and play along with the song you are playing. It has a simple built-in overdrive channel.
