This is the 200 watt MOSFET amplifier circuit on Class G with PCB. It is suitable for the PA system. Which it is a high end for all your working.
You can read more feature:
– maximum RMS output power: 200 watts at load 8 ohms or 360 watts at the load 4 ohms.
– Frequency response range: 10Hz.-150kHz.
– Minimum Harmonic distortion: 0.008%.
How it works
The input signal comes to C1 into the 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 flows to the transistors driver(Q12, Q13), to drive the output transistors (Q15, Q16).
Finally, the output signal is a drive to the loudspeaker.

In lower signal range, both transistors Q14 and Q15 will do not work. When it is the peak signal rage, this signal will come to D3, D4 to bias Q10 and Q11 run.
As a result, the MOSFET Q14 and Q17 also work. This cause the power supply 2 that have the higher voltage up to 100 volts to the amplifier section.
This feature makes the peak signals are not trimmed like the other general 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 other high power amplifiers.
How to build it
First of all, You should buy all components as lists below. Then, make the PCB below. It is actual-size of Single-sided Copper PCB layout.
Copper PCB layout
Then, assemble the parts on the PCB as Components layout. You should check carefully several times. Because this project has more details. If the error it would have been severely damaged.
Next, screw the power transistors and power MOSFET on the heat sink. By using mica sheets and the silicone pad to aid cooling. It is attached to the heat sink, tighten the screws firmly.
Remember! Do not short circuit the transistor to the heat sink.
Measuring MOSFET amplifier
When we finish assembling the project. Then, short circuit the input to the ground. Next, apply the power to the project.
After that, measure a current that flows through the positive of the 100 volts power supply. We should read the maximum current of about 20 mA.
Then, measure a current at the positive of the 40 volts supply and also have maximum current about 20 mA.
Next, use the voltmeter measure voltage between both base of Q11 and Q12, then adjust VR1 until reading the voltage about 2.6V to 2.7V.
Lastly, measure at the speaker terminal it must be zero only. Now this amplifier ready to use.
MOSFET Amplifier power supply
We should use the transformer minimum current 4A (per channel), and the secondary coil must have center trap at 70 and 31 volts as below.
200 watts amplifier power supply circuit
At the filter capacitors should connect the low capacitors to reduce the oscillation of circuit in high frequencies, we use about 0.033uF to 0.1uF.
