100 Watt sub woofer amplifier.

john January 23, 2018 819 Comments

Description.
This is the circuit diagram of a fully transistorized sub woofer amplifier that can produce an output of 100W.There are seven transistors including four in the output stage. The transistors Q1 and Q2 form the preamplifier stage. Transistors Q4 to Q7 form the output stage. Since no ICs are used the circuit is very robust and can be easily assembled on a general purpose PCB.

If you are not familiar with the basics of electronics, CircuitsToday has provided a list of 4 really good books to learn the basics of electronics. To get a better practical knowledge in the subject you can buy these books from here:- 4 GREAT BOOKS TO LEARN BASIC ELECTRONICS.

Circuit diagram with Parts list.

Notes.

  • The circuit can be powered from a +35V/-35V, 5A dual power supply.
  • Use a 100W, 12 inch sub woofer at the output.
  • All electrolytic capacitors must be rated 100V.
  • The transistor Q4 to Q7 must be fitted with heat sinks.

    Hi Kaifpkm you use with the systems sub woofer output. if you do not have any sub woofer output from your system use a sub woofer filter project appeared earlier.
    Hi Arc use 1/4 watt for resistors, which has no wattage indication. For Q3,4 & 6 use a versawatt cooling clips. For Q5 & 7 use an extruded alloy heat sink not less than 12sq inch. Cooling fans are not required. If you use a torroidal core transformer even transformer will not get heated up.

  • kaifpkm
    December 19, 2011

    sir… is nessocery any filter board at input section

  • December 17, 2011

    helo sir, all resistors should be from 1/2 to 1 watt? transformer be on a heat sink or any kind of cooling system like DC fan? sir pls help.;’ tnx in advance’.;’

    actually there is a doubt to every body that what ratings sholud the power supply be…. (it is supposed to be 25-0-25 volt ac sec. supply…. and (mic6A14 diodes)…. and (4700uf/63 volt capacitors) should be used….. the output connected to a 100watts speaker sounds perfect….(MAKE SURE THAT Q4 TO Q7 SHOULD BE PLACED ON A MULTI FIN HEATSINK WITH HEAVY WEIGHT…… I WILL ALSO TRY TO PUT ON A SPEAKER PROTECTION CIRCUIT IN NEXT UPDATES….. THANKING YOU..:)

    Hi Amar In place of 0.33 ohms (if not available you can use 3nos 1 ohm 2 watts in parallel) you can use 0.47ohms 5watts. In place of 560pF you can use any value from 100 to 470pF.

  • Amar saigal
    November 29, 2011

    can i use any other resister instead of R14(.33 ohm 5w)
    can i use any other capacitor instead of c5(560pf)

  • November 27, 2011

    sujeesh, try using a 100 watt speaker. check your power supply first; polarity of the rectifier diodes and the capacitor, replace R7 and check the components one by one. as stated above, all electrolytic capacitors should be at 100v. make sure that nothing is shorted. test it again first with a multi tester to see if you have an output then connect the speaker.

    Sir, i made this circuit when i tested this circuit with 8w,4 ohm speaker the resistor R7 starts burning.i made power supply with 27,0,27 transformer, 4,6A Power diodes and capacitor rates 4700 uf/63v. can you identifi what is the problem? Can you help me please?

  • seetharaman
    November 8, 2011

    Hi Sjees DC output from a full wave rectifier with filter capacitor will be V RMS of the secondary of the transformer multiplied with root2 (1.414 times). current rating will not change.
    Hi Kanmaa you can use 9amp transformer. your current requirement is only 2 to 3amps. if you use 9amps ensure that you provide fast acting fuse of 4amps for positive and negative rain. in the event of short circuiting speaker leads will not blow the output transistors as they are like to dissipate 400watts which is beyond their apability.

    Thank you for your last comment sir,
    i want to know that what is the ratio or any eqation to find what is the rate of voltage increase for rectifiation and filtration,after these process,what about current? Decrease or increase?

  • seetharaman
    November 4, 2011

    Hi Sujeesh you require a DC voltage of +35 – 0 -35 volts at 5amps. Since the capacitors will be charged peak voltage, 1.4.4 times the RMS secondary voltage of the transformer. Hence you have to use 35 / 1.414 volt RMS transformer. That is 25-0-25 RMS secondary transformer rated for 5Amps. 27-0-27 will produce +38 -0- -38 volt DC. Can be used. Your peak power will be little higher, around 150 watts into 4 ohms load. but getting a 25-0-25 transformer is easy because it is a standard voltage 27-0-27 you made to order.

    Hai,
    i made this circuit and i want to make a power supply,i heard that when rectified voltage will increase. If so which transformer i want to choose? 35,0,35 5A,or 27,0,27 5A. Which is more efficient?
    Can you help me?

  • seetharaman
    October 31, 2011

    Hi Sairam Without polarity and values up to 0.47uF you can use ceramic. from 0.1uF to 2u2 you can use polyester paper etc capacitors. 4.7uF and above use electrolytic capacitors, they are polarized hence take care of polarity while connecting. Here C5 has to be ceramic, C1 can be ceramic or polyester. others are electrolytic capacitors. For high frequency, coupling and decoupling use ceramic.

    Hi Shubham Mosfets are best suited for high power amplifiers. IRF540 & IRF9540 are the best, freely available and inexpensive. The bias requirement per mosfet is 1.5 to 2.5 volt depends on the sample. For setting the standing current for both the output transistors you develop voltage between 2 to 6 volts between both the gates. adjust till you get a standing current of around 60 to 100mA through Mosfets.

  • Shubham
    August 11, 2011

    Thanks sir,
    sir please tell me, is it better to use mosfet or fet in the place of transistor in main amplifier, as mosfet can handle large current, and they dont require heat sink. They also dont have thermal runway as transistor do, when they are heated up.

    If yes then which mosfet shuld be used ,with what biasing resistance.

    Hi Shbham Use a 100k log potentio-meter(three tags), preferred but if not available use 100k lin (not rheostat- 2 tags only). connect center of the potentiometer to C1. one end of the potentiometer to common(ground). Connect input between both the end of the potentiometer such that input signal ref is connected to common and actual signal is connected to other end of the potentiometer.

    Hi Rahul it should give at least some highly distorted sound of low volume with 12-0-12 volt DC. The recommended voltage is 35-0-35 you require at least +25- 0 – -25 for this circuit to function. 2N5296 is OK.

    2. To etch our own pcb, where to get ferric chloride? I mean, will it be available in local shops, or it must be got in cities such as chennai?
    3. what is the name of the copper plated board used to print and etch the pcb?

    Thanks.

    Dear Mr Seetharaman,

    In my marantz SR 73 AV Receiver, in one of its front Channels( Front Left ) a “pat-Chit” noise begins after 2 or 3 minutes of switching on, some times bit earlier. Initially when switched on it works very fine( there is a relay inside, which switches on the speakers after a brief delay, this may be the reason there is no such sound immediately after switching on) but this noise starts after some time. But sound/music out-put is very clear but with this noise. The sound persists even when the in-put volume is fully reduced to zero. I am compelled to use this device as just pre-amplifier with all its pre-outs connecting to my another 5.1 amplifier. Pre-outs are good and is working well.

    I am unable to locate the problem. I for once I thought out-put coupling capacitors may be leaking( no such indication inside! the cabinet) and the capacitors try to charge up swiftly thereby producing this noise.

    Please advise what is the problem with my amplifier.
    And how can I fix it.
    Kindly mail me at bhaskara.india@gmail.com

    Regards.
    Bhaskara N

    I am implementing this circuit as part of my analog electronics project. Is there any replacement for 2N5294?

    And secondly reading above comments I am a bit confused now. Do I have to change any values in it? Some people are complaining that Q5, Q6 and Q7 along with some resistors are getting too hot. Do I have to change any component’s value or implement it as it is?

    Hi Burhan Mr Sebin is correct this capacitor is used for decoupling negative voltage to Q1 and Q2, hence it has to be reversed.
    Hi Sebin I recently tried TDA2050 push pull > 70 watts into 8 ohms load. The standing current is around 120mA after driving the amp for 1/2 hr with amplifier running quite warm and found that the standing current has returned back to 120mA. very stable with very low distortion. This IC is quite economical with very few external components.

    Hi Sebin use an operational amplifier feed one signal to inverting input and the other signal to non inverting input. you get the difference between the signal (say L – R) now feed this this signal to an inverting unity gain amplifier you will get the other signal (R – L).

    Normally Ahuja has taken care of it. has it developed recently or it is there from the beginning. you can use a timer relay through which you can connect output of the amplifier to a dummy load (resistance of suitable value and wattage) during switch on and after about 10 to 20 seconds you can change to speaker. if the problem has developed recently kindly contact Ahuja for tips.

  • Seetharaman
    April 4, 2011

    Hi Sebin use a sub woofer filter for L + R signal feed it to Sub woofer amplifier keep that in front of you Left and Right signals can be used as front speaker signals.Now use L-R (Left – Right) signal for rear left speaker and R-L signal for Left Left Channel. This will give you a good surround effect with a good stereo signal. With mono signal all signals will shift to front center and rear speakers will become quite. (with mono signal L=R hence L-R will become Zero. Try and enjoy it. you will definitely like it.
    Hi Badboy if you are using the subwoofer appeared in Circuits today it should work perfectly. still if you have problem add 100 PF ceramic between inv and non-inv input of the first stage amplifier IC.

    Hi Aris without test instruments it will be difficult. But practically you can find out by reducing the volume level to just audible level, when you are just close to the speaker. a choking type of sound indicates crossover distortion. at higher volume it will become almost normal sound.

    hi seetharaman sir,

    With multimeter is it possible for me to check the standing current.How can i check it where i have to connect the red probe and black probe to find the standing current,which resistor value i have to change in order to adjust the standing current.With out input my amplifier output transistors are cool when i play songs for a long time (1 to 2 hours) transistor is getting heated up i think Q5 is getting hotter. Q7 is only producing normal temperature the heat from Q5 makes Q7 heated up.Kindly help me sir.

  • Seetharaman
    March 25, 2011

    Hi Sebinsony You may short the resistance R9 and 10 if the output transistors are cool it indicated your standing current is high. Check it should not be greater than 25 to 30mA. If it is too less then distortion will set in at low volume levels (crossover distortion)then add 10 ohms and try if it within limits leave it. if it is still less increase the value if it is high reduce the value and finalise now the heating should be ok.
    Hi Aris congratulations. with indicated transistors some consume little high current, with equivalent transistors you have to do little experimenting with R9 and 10

  • Seetharaman
    March 23, 2011

    Hi Jacob 2.2uF is 225K (2,200,000PF) 224 is 0.22uF 2.2uF any capacitor you can use non polar is preferable, if not available 2.2uF 63volt electrolytic you can use (take care of polarity). Voice will get through, that depends on the attenuation in the filter if the curve 40dB / octave you will get low volume of voice is it is 20dB it will be more etc. Fix a link between Q4 and Q6 base (shorting bias components D1 D2 R9 & R10)energise, if heating comes down you have to short R9 and 10 and try if things are ok try playing music(we are trying to reduce standing current). If they are still getting heated up, Q3 Collector emitter may be short.

    we have to connect this low-pass filter (1k resistor &470pf capacitor) at the input signal right.I mean before the c1 capacitor.

    Hi Jacob this is to avoid stray pickup of HF and resulting in hf instability. If amplifier, filter net work, power if all are in one metal chassis then not required. if not it is better to provide it as general precautions to all power amplifier to avoid the amplifier getting over driven by high frequency from previous stage or through stray pickup, which will lead to severe distortion or instability.

    HI SEETHARAMAN SIR

    AS YOU SAID IF I ADD A 1K RESISTOR IN SERIES TO THE INPUT AND A 470 PF CAPACITOR IN PARALLEL WILL MY AMPLIFIER GIVES MORE BASS, AS I AM USING IT AS A SUB WOOFER AMPLIFIER.IF I AM USING A SUB-WOOFER FILTER IS IT NECESSARY TO USE 1K RESISTOR AND 470PF CAPACITOR, WILL IT MAKE ANY IMPROVEMENT IN THE EFFECT.WHERE I HAVE TO CONNECT THIS SIMPLE LOW PASS FILTER BEFORE THE SUB WOOFER FILTER OR AFTER THE SUB WOOFER FILTER.

    SIR U R HELPING ME A LOT.THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR.SIR WHICH PLACE ARE YOU FROM.I AM FROM INDIA

    Hi David for a class room you have to concentrate on voice frequencies rather than low frequency. a full range speaker (Hi-Q) will be ideal. say 6″ X 4″ or 6″ will be ideal in a small air tight enclosure of say 4 to 8 litres internal air volume. you can use TDA2040 amp with a passive tone control appeared in our circuitstoday earlier.

    HI SEETHARAMAN SIR,

    I HAVE COMPLETED FIXING THE COMPONENTS ON THE PCB.I AM GOING TO USE THIS AS A SUB WOOFER AMPLIFIER WITH A SUB WOOFER FILTER,SHOULD I NEED TO CHANGE ANY OF THE CAPACITOR VALUES TO GET MORE EFFECT.YOU HAVE SAID IN YOUR PREVIOUS POST DATED 4TH MAY TO Increase C1 to 2.2 or 4.7uf non electrolytic capacitor to improve low frequency response to 10Hz or so, with the present value the roll of will be above 50Hz itself.

    I’m a teacher, and I would like to use in class room. I have a wireless microphone. I need at least 20w, with the smaller woofer size. What woofer you recommend? Where do I insert volume and treble pots? Best Regards.

    Hi Bad boy the positioning of the speaker in your room can affect the sound inside the room. even the phase mismatch due to distance between your ear and different speakers ( sub woofer and satellite speakers) can also give raise to this problem. Try by relocating and by adjusting the angle of your speakers can definitely improve the response in side the room.
    Hi Jacob if you are very particular you can use 3nos 1 ohm 2watts resistance in parallel. but 0.47 5 watt is good enough and it will not affect the performance.

    hi seetharaman;
    i have got all the components in the circuit except .33ohms 5W resistor. Instead of that i got .47 5W is that enough,or is their any substitute for that kindly help me.

  • Seetharaman
    March 13, 2011

    Hi Jacob sorry for the delayed reply. You have to use insulating kits for the output transistors, while fitting them on to the heat sink.(mica or plastic washer with non metallic insulating bushes – washer and transistor surfaces to be smeared with silicon conductive grease to improve the thermal conduction). If you use + & – 35 volt DC for supply and 8 ohms speaker the output will be around 75watt RMS. with + – 40volts the output will be 100Watts RMS into 8 ohms speaker. With + – 22volt supply the output will be 100 watts into 4 ohms load. To avoid humming you have to use perfect layout. use large value filter capacitors with one more diode and filter capacitor after main filter capacitor as pi filter. connect power supply zero volt reference the chassis earth at only one point, that too at the amplifier input socket. use thick short length of wire say 2.5sq mm less than 3 inches to connect the power supply to the amplifier.

    hi sebin jacob , yes i have designed this circuit and its working very well…. humming sound is produced when u use capacitors of less value to remove this humming sound ( if produced) use capacitors of higher values with the supply… i:e 4700 Uf’s minimum…… i m using 6800 Uf capacitors…with 25-0-25 transformer… and 3ampere diodes bridge….
    if u want a design of power supply then plz visit this link …. n do comments plz… 🙂

    Hi seetharaman

    I am aware about the sub-woofer filter. Kindly please read the doubts i am writing below.

    My doubt is regarding the watts. It is said that we get 100 w output, is it for 4 ohms or for 8 homes woofer. should I need to make any changes in this circuit(is this circuit correct).For the transistor 2n3773 body is the collector, so when we connect both the transistors to a heat sink the collector of both transistors 2n3773 get short through heat sink is their any problem for that. Should I need to use bigger heat sink for all the transistors, or for the Q5 and Q7 big heat sink and for the rest small heat sinks? Some amplifiers produce humming sounds is this a good amplifier which is very quite when it is at the ideal state expecting your replay and helps.

    Hi omer;
    I hope you had completed and start using this circuit. How is it? Is it a good one? Does it produce any humming sound at the ideal state? Do you made any changes in this circuit to make it works? Help me please I am interested I this circuit I need to built this after considering your opinion I am waiting for your replay.

    March 10, 2011

    hi SEBIN JACOB , i have experienced TDA 2030’s and also this circuit… with respect to wattage this circuit is more strong… but if u want pure woofer output from this circuit then u should use a subwoofer low pass filter before this circuit….I hope it will fulfill ur requirement..

    March 9, 2011

    I am using a simple sub woofer with ic tda2030X2 the out put is not satisfactory for me.Is this circuit good for home sub-woofers i want good bass (thumping sound) please help me.I will only start making it only after your replay.i am having a transformer of 25-0-25 will it gives +-35 when rectified,is that ok for the best working of this circuit.

    Hi Aris for 10inch woofer say with soft textile rubber cone with free movement sealed 35 to 45 liter internal volume will be the best. If it is a tight rigid cone full range speaker, around 60 liter sealed enclosure with internal volume will be ideal. Make it front center mounting that will be the best. For 8″ woofer I am using 50 X 30 X 16 cm external with 20mm wood board carpet felt fitted on the internal surface of the enclosure. external measurement with 20mm ply board of 75 X 45 X 20 cm for 10″ and 12″. These sizes were based on Philips audio application book and suitably assembled by a carpenter for me by using Philips 8″ & Luxco 8″ woofer – bolton 10″ & Luxco 10″ and JLS 12″ full range.

    hello everybody, hi seetharaman

  • Seetharaman
    March 6, 2011

    Hi KVS perfectly ok. only thing is you will get less wattage with +, – 24volt you will get around 32 watts into 8 ohms speaker and 64 watts into 4 ohms speaker. Put a link between Q4 and Q6 base the current drawn by output transistors should fall down, if other things are connected properly. If current is still high and 100 ohms are getting heated up check the transistor orientation

    hi MOMOK… no the thikness does’nt matter . your connections must b complete and accurate…. yes all the grounds should b commonly connected. . . . . just u can measure the current across all the transistors to know that if they r working or not??
    and also u can check by touching them if they r heating up then they r working………

    at the end , make sure that all ur connections are accurate…

    but we have encoutered some problems

    -the output voltage on the output of the amplifier reach 17V…what do you think the problem was???
    -should all the grounds be connected as common one???
    -we have design the layout on pcb wizard on a 4 by 6 inch board will the thickness and distance of the connection from each other will give big affect?
    -how will we know if transistor is working?

    Hi Gopi the gain of the amplifier is around 70. To get 100Watt RMS your input should be 30 / 70 = 400mV RMS. To achieve you may to add one pre amplifier stage with a gain of 10 it should take care of your problem.
