STK4231II 2 channel 100w stereo audio amplifier circuit

If you want to create the 100 watt OCL audio amplifier circuit. I have many circuits for you, transistors, and ICs.

Now using IC is a better choice. I want you to consider this circuit.

STK4231II stereo audio amplifier circuit

It uses the STK4231 chip to create a simple, small, without adjusting, and economical.

How it works

The STK4231 is a Hybrid IC of Sanyo, in the family of STK4201II. It can provide a high power output of 100 watts per channel.

And When connected to the bridge adapter. The its output altitude up to about 400 watts (It’s incredible).

The feature

It has main feature.

  • Built-in muting circuit to cut off various kinds of pop noise.
  • Greatly reduced heat sink-due to case temperature 125 degrees Celsius.
  • Excellent cost performance.

As this circuit, we can design the OCL amplifier 100 watts each channel. You will see that, this circuit consists of only a few external components.

Some detail may help you easy.

  • The capacitor C9, C10 is used to reduce noise at high frequencies.
  • Both C1 and C11 are the input coupling capacitors.
  • The C2, C12 is defined for low-frequency cut-off point.

Which we can calculate from the formula :

F=1/6.28 C2xR5

2 channel 100W STK4231 amplifier circuit


  1. Both capacitor C2, C12 is defined gain ratio at low frequency. But they must do not over high.

Because, while open this circuit. It will be has a noise “thub…b.b.b” out to your speaker.

2. And both C3 and C13 are the boost trapping capacitors. If this value is too low. It will make more distortion at low frequency.

Then, both C5 and C8 capacitors reduce oscillation. Which, it will reduce the impedance of the power supply circuit to suit the use of IC.

Setting the gain ratio of the circuit.

It is defined by R5 = 560 and R4 = 56K. They will be total gain is VG = 40dB.
If you want to change the rate of expansion, it should change the R5.

Change idle current is defied by R21 and R22 resistors.

Hey! Oh… Is it too large circuit for you, Right?

  2. in this circuit how to use 5.1 hometheater used,with stk4231 ic and 8 inch subwoober,and with 100 watts only other speaker or how to use wstts.

  3. hai friends iam raju from yuvaraj bisnes stk amplifiers i want stk 4231-11 components pcb boards please any infarmation

  4. Dear,for assembling STK-4231-11,can i use the same pcb configuration used forSTK4141-11?Because i had a stk 4141 circuit working with 30V/5Amps Dc Dual supply,that ic got may be replaced.STK 4231,is it available at kolkatta market?

  5. hi. why pin 16 is connected to -50v in pcb and top silk but in schematic pin 16 of stk isn’t connected to -50v? and another question that why do you use 100uF capacitor except 10uF(C7) in top silk?please help.

  6. Hi momename
    i made this circuit according to the top silk
    that you had put in this part for stk.
    now I want to say if others want to make this circuit;
    please follow the top silk information.
    when i wanted to start this circuit;suddenly I SHOCKED
    make this circuit and enjoy of it. thank you very much momename for your great amplifier circuit.

  7. Should pin 16 shouldnbe connected or left opened….?
    And i am following the schematic diagram i.e. the first is it correct?

  8. I made the circuit but its not working…i tried with schematic , top silk and the bottom layer but the resistor R10 is getting burnt and the ic is getting heated…please help as soon as possible…!

  9. Sir i am desired used this ic to subwoofer for 5.1 system pls said transformer rating alsow which ic used to other 5 channel for 5.1 system

  10. Hi.I live in London England.Is it possible to buy the Pcb and components including speaker protection circuit for TDA2030 100w stereo amplifier with PCB.If so How mutch in £ wiil it cost.Thanks Bernie

  11. Hello, I apologize for my bad English. I would like to point out that pins 5 and 10 have been superimposed in the STK4231 diagram. However, I built following the diagram and the L channel is perfect but the R channel produces 50 volts by burning the speaker and I don’t understand why …

  12. I have a Sony Active Superbass SA-W441. Is it possible to use this as a stand alone Stereo amplifier ? It has the same Chip as the one used here.
