300 watt MOSFET Power amplifier circuit class G

This is the Class G 300 watt MOSFET Power amplifier circuit with PCB MOSFET. which is high end for all your jobs. It have more feature,
– maximum RMS output power: 200 watts at load 8 ohms or 360 watts at the load 4 ohms.
– The frequency response range: 10Hz.-150kHz.
– Minimum harmonic distortion: 0.008%.

How it works

the complete circuit of this project
Figure 1 the complete circuit of this project.

The input signal is sent to C1 into base of Q1 that is connected with Q2 as the differential amplifier circuit. Then,this signal is increased to the section 2 (Q3,Q4). Next,the signal is sent to the transistors driver(Q12, Q13), to drive the output transistors (Q15, Q16). Finally, the output signal is drive to the loud speaker.

In lower signal range, both transistors Q14, Q15 will doesn’t works. But when is the peak signal rage,this signal is sent to D3, D4 to bias Q10, Q11 works. As a result, the mosfet Q14, Q17 also works. This cause the power supply 2 that have the higher voltage up to 100 volts to the amplifier section. This feature makes the peak signal aren’t trimmed like the general others amplifiers.

Here are the highlights of the class G amplifier. Because all transistors do not need to work hard all the time. So, Reduce energy loss and heat of the output power transistors better than the others high power amplifiers.

How to builds it

First of all,make the PCB as Figure 2 which is actual-size of Single-sided Copper PCB layout. Then, assemble the parts on the PCB as Figure 3 Should check carefully several times. Because this project have more details, If the error it would have been severely damaged.

Next,screw the power transistors and power mosfet on the heat sink. By use of mica sheets and the silicone pad to aid cooling. It was attached to the heat sink, Tighten the screws firmly. Remmeber! Do not the body of transistor strictly short circuit to the heat sink.

When we finish assembling the project. Then,short circuit the input to the ground. Next,apply the power to the project. After that,measure current that flow through the positive of the 100 volts power supply. We should read maximum current about 20 mA. Then, measure current at the positive of the 40 volts supply and also have maximum current about 20 mA.

Use the voltmeter measure voltage between both base of Q11 and Q12, then adjust VR1 until read the voltage about 2.6-2.7volts.

Lastly,measure at the speaker terminal it must be zero only. Now this amplifiers ready to use.

The power supply

We should use the transformer minimum current 4 Amperes (per channel), and secondary coil must have center trap at 70 and 31 volts as Figure 4.

At the filter capacitors should connects the low capacitors to reduce the oscillation of circuit in high frequencies,we use about 0.033-0.1uF.
