MOSFET amplifier circuit – 10 Watts

10 Watts MOSFET Amplifier Description. The diagram shown here is of a 10W MOSFET amplifier circuit that requires only a single supply. Single rail supply is seldom used in Class-B power amplifiers. Anyway, for low power applications like this it’s quite fine. Actually I got this circuit from an old cassette player that is still working and I am publishing it as it is. The powers MOSFETs BD512 and BD522 are obsolete now and so you may use any other matching power MOSFETS instead of them. Transistors Q1 and Q2 is wired as a Darlington pair works as the preamplifier….

Transistor Amplifier Circuit-12 Watts

12 Watts Transistor Amplifier Circuit Description. The circuit shown below is not at all expensive as the amplifier contains only an op-amp and four transistors (easily available from your electronics junk box).Here the op-amp used is uA 741 which produces the required gain.The four transistors are wired as complementary Darlington’s which produces the drive for the speaker. The voltage drop across the resistors R2 and R3, are used as the input of the Darlington pairs . As the input current to the op-amp depends on the level of the signal op amp is amplifying the voltage drop across the resistors…
