Schematics Stereo Parabolic Microphone

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The mini condenser microphone converts sounds into an electrical signal. Resistor R1 provides bias for the condensor microphone`s internal amplifier transistor. The 2N3906 PNP transistor acts as a low noise microphone input amplifier. The 10K gain potentiometer is used for adjusting the audio signal level. A stereo 10K audio taper pot can be used

for adjusting both channels simultaneously, or individual 10K trimmers can be used for fixed gain applications. The preamp output signal is fed into the 1458 op-amp, which boosts the audio to a level that is sufficient for driving an 8-ohm headphone or a tape recorder input. The 1458 amplifier stage is fixed gain (10X) in the inverting configuration, it drives the headphone speakers. Capacitor C9 provides DC isolation from the 1458 op-amp output, which sits at half of the supply voltage. Resistor R13 provides impedance protection for the op-amp output and reduces audio distortion when driving low impedance headphones. DC bias for the 1458 op-amps is set at half of the supply voltage by the R16/R17 voltage divider. Capacitors C13 and C14 filter the DC power supply for the op-amp stage. The DC is further filtered for the input preamp transistors through resistor R15 and capacitor C11. Diode D1 and resistor R18 protect the circuit from reverse battery polarity. The Big-E circuit can be assembled on a circuit board, or hand wired. The board should be installed in a metal box for shielding from unwanted hum. For surveillance applications, the condenser microphones can be mounted directly on the PC board or on the edge of the metal box. The volume control can be mounted on the edge of the box, two 3. 5MM mono jacks were used for the microphone inputs, a 3. 5MM stereo jack was used for the headphone output. The 9V battery was...
