18W Audio Amplifier

Posted on Dec 3, 2012

High Quality very simple unit -- No need for a preamplifier Can be directly connected to CD players, tuners and tape recorders. Don`t exceed 23 + 23V supply. Q3 and Q4 must be mounted on heatsink. D1 must be in thermal contact with Q1. Quiescent current (best measured with an Avo-meter in series with Q3 Emitter) is not critical. Adjust R3 to read a current between 20 to 30 mA with no input signal.
