Active Bass Boost circuit using IC-741

This General purpose active bass boost circuit is low pass filter that famous for decades over the years,can be used to increase the bass to the amplifier gain.

The characteristics similar to a normal tone control circuits, It is designed for high frequency in the Flat form. But The low frequency or bass can add more or less by adjusting the VR1.

This circuit will use , power supply 12 volt. When feed input come in sound signal will coupling change C1 and R3 go to reach at pin B of Q1. Which Q1 do something signal booster give the power goes up in the one level before from that time signal at enlarge already will go out the way pin E of Q1 go to reach at C2 for coupling sound signal again from that time signal go to reach still filter frequency part.

Figure 1 The schematic diagram of this project.


Which signal first part will change C3, C5, R8, R9, and R10 By perform eradicate high frequency and signal again the part will change R5, R6, R7 and C4 Which be low pass frequency change by have VR1 be formed fine low frequency level or sound bass too much or the a little from that time signal bilateral the part will congregate to go to reach at pin 2 of IC1.

Then do something signal booster go out 6 leg ways of IC change C7 go out still output and sound signal again one from pin 6 of IC fed get back still filter frequency part for control expansion way frequency ratio has good stability output of circuit induce build reach pre tone section next.

This circuit can used from 12 – 18 volts, making it easy to use and find local power supply.

There are 2 types of connections, the magnification of the amplifier as follows. (Look at Figure 2)
(1.) The application with a power amplifiers that power output less than 60 watts.
To apply the audio signal to the tone control circuit to this circuit and then to input amplifier circuits
(2). This way is best, connecting it to font the original tone control circuit for more than 60 watts power amplifiers.

Figure 2 Connection

However, consider the watt amplifier, If you want best results, should be connected to the front sets the tone control is better.

How to builds
Make the PCBs as Figure 3 for MONO and Figure 4 for Stereo, as you see appropriate, then Assembling parts into the PCBs in the correct order.

The PCB layout and components for MONO
Figure 3 The PCB layout and components for MONO

The PCB layout and components for Stereo
Figure 4 The PCB layout and components for Stereo

Then try the power to the circuit. Then adjust VR1 to the bass is like the best.

This circuit is not suitable for low-watt amplifier. And speaker who can not get the bass sound.

  1. C4,C3,C5 pls are they pf uf or nf pls help me..

  2. Pls C4,C3,C5 are they pf uf or nf pls help me.becuz of non polarity

  3. Is this circuit work?

  4. Hi There,

    I have built your bass booster and it works very well. Are you able to tell me what frequency range it uses.

    Many Thanks


  5. Hi Grant,
    Thanks your interested this projects it easy.
    it boost up at 60Hz frequency but you can adjust more frequency as you want please read it text again.

  6. what is the supply for this circuit sir 12v 0 12v ?

  7. please help me for doing this project
    i can’t understand the process of constrcting bassbooster

  8. please help me for doing this project
    i can’t understand the process of constrcting bassbooster

  9. thanks

  10. Sir i have built ur circult but when i connect it to amplifier and speaker,i got noise alongside bass..
    Please tell me how to fix it…..

  11. is this a 30 watt speaker ?

  12. please !! I want reply immediately : (Good) && Is op amp pin 2 and 3 voltage are same? and why??

  13. How can you even expect anyone to read the working when the content language and grammar is so so bad.
    Please upload a proper working.
    BTW the circuit is pretty good.

  14. I want to make a tone controller
