Subwoofer Filter Circuit

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

This subwoofer active filter circuit is a 24 dB octave filter with a Bessel character and cutoff frequency of 200 Hz. So, if you are interested in experimenting with audio circuits in subwoofer range, this circuit is for you. In subwoofer range, all audio frequencies below 200 Hz can be fed to a single speaker box since the human directional perce

ption of sound diminishes at this frequency range. The normal stereo signals above 200 Hz can be fed to 2 satellite speakers. How does the subwoofer filter works: A1 and A2 buffer the signals coming from right and left channels. Opamp combinations A2/A4 and A9/A10 function as the highpass filters. The outputs are then connected to the final amplifiers of the battelite boxes. Signals from both channels are fed to A5. Opamps A6/A7 function as the lowpassfilter, A8 as the output amplifier for the subwoofer signal. The signal level can be balanced between the subwoofer and the satellite lines. The power needed for this filter circuit must ne a symmetrical power supply. The opamps can have either JFET or bipolar inputs. super circit. I use this circuits in DTS cinema surround system in many theatres. Also i use it in my 5. 2 ch DOLBY DIGITAL 3D hOLOPHONIC SURROUND SYSTEM . Pin 1 is OP 1 output. Pin 2 is OP 1 inverting input. Pin 3 is OP 1 non-inverting input. Pin 4 is VEE (most negative supply ground can be used, but the virtual ground must be generated using two resistors and an electrolytic capacitor). Pin 5 is OP 2 non-inverting input. Pin 6 is OP 2 inverting input. Pin 7 is OP 2 output. Pin 8 is VCC (most positive supply). The LM833 is capable of 30VDC operation. The TLMC662 is capable of 12VDC operation, but has CMOS inputs and can swing closer to its rails. The LME49726 operates on 5V, buhas such low distortion commercial...
