15W Audio Amplifier Circuit (Class B)

The circuit shown here is of a simple Class-B audio amplifier based on op-amp TL082, transistors TIP41 and TIP42. LM833 is a dual op-amp with high slew rate and low distortion particularly designed for audio applications. This audio amplifier circuit can deliver 15 watt audio output into an 8 ohm speaker at +12/-12V DC dual supply.

Both op-amps in the IC are used here. IC1a is wired as a buffer and capacitor C3 does the job of input DC decoupling. Ic1b is wired in the inverting mode and it provides negative feedback. Complementary power transistors TIP41 and TIP42 are wired in the Class B push pull scheme and they drives the loud speaker. Diode D1 provides 0.7V bias voltage for the push pull pair and capacitor C2 protects the 0.7V bias voltage across D1 from heavy voltage swings at the IC1b’s output.

Important Points :-
1. The audio amplifier circuit must be assembled on a good quality PCB.
2. Use a holder for mounting IC1.
3. Use a +12/-12V dual supply for powering the amplifier.
4. Potentiometer R2 can be used as a volume control.
5. Raising the power supply voltage will increase the output power. Anyway note the following points.
6. TIP42 and 41 can handle only up to 6A.
7. Maximum supply voltage IC1 can handle is +16/-16 V DC.
