Also, you look at its circuit symbol pin connection below.

The TDA2030 integrated circuit is the best choice to make a good audio amplifier circuit. It is used to make many amplifier outputs 10 watts to 200 watts.

And a lot of types, Mono or Stereo, OTL, OCL, BCL (Bridge amplifier).

For Example, the super Bridge 120 Watts—I love it. Because of small, easy using, and cheap.

For Example TDA2030 Circuits

Are you interest in it? Let’s see we can apply it to what circuits.

1# Small Versatile Power Amplifier, 12W OTL

Versatile Power Amplifier TDA2030

The multi-purpose Amplifier using TDA2030 circuit. It has power 8W(RMS) at 8Ω loudspeakers.

It has low noise be valuable THD (Total harmonic distortion) 0.1%.

When friends use Power supply Voltage Source 28V at 4Ω loudspeakers. It has the output power of 12W.

But be high class the noise increases to are 2 times.

Besides still three be usable with Volt supply about 9V. But there is the electric power is down respectively.

The VR1 use for the Volume popularity level of a sound signal.

If you cannot find a 22K potentiometer. You can use 50K instead.

See next circuit are better.

Recommended: Do you want higher output power than this?
Use TDA2050

2# Mini 15W OTL Power Amplifier with PCB

This is the main power amplifier of 15W OTL at 8Ω loudspeakers.

You should use power supply at least 24V 1A for MONO.

3# 14W TDA2030 Stereo amplifier circuit

This is a TDA2030 stereo amplifier circuit. It is a special project.

Because it is an OCL type amplifier.

Which provide power driver of 14 watts/channel at load 4 ohms.

So, it is suitable for beginners thought will build electroacoustics to listen to themselves.

This project use IC of The SGS company number TDA2030.

Which SGS said that TDA2030 is a power amplifier IC in 5 pins form.

The Setting circuit on a class AB power amplifier to the output of the high harmonic distortion and low crossover.

They are ready, shock output protection, and the temperature is too high, complemented within the integrated circuit.

TDA2030 Stereo Amplifier OCL circuit diagram

As we listen to the sound quality nice. We turn the volume fully to several hours. The IC is not hot. Or just warm. so, suitable for beginners to build this circuit to listen with yourself.

Technical Specifications of IC-TDA2030

  • Maximum voltage supply used of +/- 18VDC.
  • Begin working at a minimal voltage of +/- 6VDC.
  • Power driver output 14 watts at 4 ohms and 9 watts at 8 ohms.
  • The maximum current of 900mA.
  • Frequency response range 10HZ-140KHz at -3dB.

How this circuit works

In the circuit, the figure is a single channel amplifier. You will see that have very few parts. Both pin 1 and pin 2 of IC-TDA2030 input.

The pin 1 is non-inverting input and pin 2 is inverting input. Then input of power amplifier comes to C1 into pin 1 of IC.

  • The R3 determines the input impedance of the IC.
  • Pin 3 is -VCC leg or negative voltage, and pin 5 is a +Vcc or positive voltage.
  • Four capacitors C3, C4, C5, and C6 are bypass filter voltage +Vcc and -Vcc.
  • R1 as acts adjust the gain of IC with a negative feedback form. If R1 has higher resistance. Then, the gain rate of IC rises up as well.
  • The R4 and C7 are protectors a oscillated high frequency.

You need to put all parts correctly on PCB. Even You need to be careful putting the polarity of the electrolytic capacitors and Diodes right ways.


Full wave rectifier diodes

In the component layout, use both full wave rectifier diode that has three lead. For positive has K A K
And negative has A K A lead.  It may be an old part.   So you can apply two diodes connection as below circuit diagram.

How to install TDA2030

The IC is the final sequence. You should install with a heat sink first. Then, Solder it on PCB. Because of if soldering IC first. The Holes between the ICs and the heat sink may be mismatched.

When all things are complete. Then, connect the speakers to the output. And connect the ACV of transformer current at least of 2A, ACV 12V CT 12V or 15V CT 15V, One or the other to the power connector terminal.


Our amplifiers are ready to test. We use a finger, touch input on both. It will noise of the hum out of the speakers. That sound is good. Then, use a good quality tone controls. To test the complete sound again.
