Bull horn

The input audio signal is fed to pin 3 of Ul, an LM386 low-voltage amplifier, via C3 and Rl. Potentiometer Rl sets the drive or volume level. Ul, which serves as a driver stage, can be set for a gain of from 20 to 200. The output of Ul at pin 5 is fed to U2—a 377 dual two-watt amplifier connected in parallel to produce about four watts of output power—at pins 6 and 9 via C4 and C5. Frequency stability is determined by R2, R4, and CIO on one side, and the corresponding components R6, R5, and C9 on the other side.

The outputs of the two amplifiers (at pins 2 and 13) are capacitively coupled to SPKR1 through C6 and C7.
