Audio signal Indicator

Posted on Aug 27, 2012

This circuit can be used to remotely monitor a loudspeaker, alarm, or audio source for presence of an audio waveform. It can also be directly connected across loudspeaker terminals used as a peak indicator. If you need to monitor some audio signal at a location that is either soundproof are too far away to actually hear the signal then you can use a circuit similar to this one. A remote indication that the audio source is active is provided visually, here in the form of a LED. Referring to the above circuit, the 10k preset is a level control which should be adjusted so that when the source ( audio signal or alarm ) is producing the desired amount of noise, the LED lights.

The input stage is an inverting x100 amplifier made with a 741 op-amp. The output of the 741 is capacitively coupled into a 10k load resistor, thus removing any dc component from the signal and the offset null voltage of the op-amp. As only the amplified
