60W RMS OTL integrated audio amplifier circuit

This is 60W RMS OTL integrated audio amplifier circuit using 2N3055 and normal transistor so cheap and can build easily and It’s durable and very loud sound for mini PA

From the previous project, some people say that Not suitable for a small party. Because of soft and does not durable. So I highly recommend this project are The classic OTL integrated amplifier that power output 55 watts.

The its feature is loudly than other circuits and watts are equal. the speaker has durability and be difficulty damage. And build easier OCL amplifier Although some people say that it is not good bass. But if you try, you may like it.

Principle and operation of this projects

They consists of two large parts are the main amplifier and tone control circuit Same as the previous circuit. As show Figture fo this circuits.
Figure 1 the complete circuits of circuit diagram.

The tone control circuit consists of Q1-transistor and IC1( op-amp IC-LM741). The signal input will enter to C1 and R3 into base of Q1. Which acts as matching between the input circuit and tone control-IC1.

VR1 is used to adjust the bass sound.

VR2 is used to adjust the treble sound.

Which this circuit can adjust the bass/treble to upper or lower up to 18 dB.

The output from the tone control will be entered through C8-capacitor to the level sound controller circuit is VR3-potentiometer and the loudness controller.

The signal from volume will enter through to base of transistor-Q2, To amplifier the signal higher, that enter to pre driver Q3, to drive the driver circuit with Q4, Q5 and the both power transistors Q6, Q7 next.

How to builds
Since the circuit is designed as well. So easy to create. However, to the best results. Should perform the following.

The Figure 2 Actual-size, single-sided PCB layout for the circuit.

Figure 3 the Component layout for the PCB

1. Check the correct finished in putting all components.
2. Do not connect the power transistor.
3. Use the voltmeter measures at 2 points C17, C18 compare to ground.
4. connects the positive 56 volts to this circuit and then adjust VR4 until read meter about 28 volts.
5. connects properly the power transistors to the circuit

The power supply circuit

In the figure 4, The voltage 56V for this circuit. We are derived from the bridge rectifier to change from AC40V. to as DCV. then pass the filter capacitors , and then will obtained is the 56VDC.

The transformer that use for the mono type, should use size is 2A and size under 3A in the stereo system.
