The input is ac coupled to the amplifier through C2, which blocks de signals that might also be present at the input. The Rl/Cl combination forms a low-pass filter, which eliminates unwanted high-frequency signals by bypassing them to ground when they appear at the circuit input, which has an impedance of about 52 0. The gain of the amplifier is set at about 26 dB by resistors R3 and R4. The R5/C5/C7 combination on the positive supply and its counterpart R6/C6/C8 on the negative supply provides power-supply decoupling. R7 and C9 together prevent oscillation at the output of the amplifier.

From that point, the amplifier"s output signal is direct coupled to the speaker through a 3-A fuse, Fl. The de output of the amplifier at pin 7 is 0 V, so no de current flows through the speaker. Should there be a catastrophic failure of the output stage, fuse Fl, which should be a fast -acting type, prevents de from flowing through the speaker.
