Power amplifier circuit capable of delivering overloaded 300watts RMS


300 watts audio amplifier circuit diagram.


This 300 watt power amplifier circuit capable of delivering overloaded 300watts RMS over a load of 8 ohms, and over 350 watts with 4 Ohm speakers.

Amplifier circuit uses complementary transistors to achieve the intended high power with Hi-Fi quality. The unit is powered with a 45V + 45V supply, with current not more than 7 amps. Most of the incorporated transistors barring the BC556C must be mounted on the heat sink, which must be preferably fixed over one of the sides of the cabinet to facilitate proper dissipation.

R1 - R10 = 1/4W OR 1/2W
R11 = 1W
R12 - R16 = 1/4W OR 1/2W
R17, R18 = 1/2W
R19 - R24 = 5W

C7 ,C8 = 40V
C5 = 25V
C1 =50V
Other capacitor (non polarized) use 63V or above

The diodes marked X, Y and Z are 1N4007 and these too must also be mounted on the heat sink but with thermal grease. The music fed to the amplifier input must be 1Vpp standard line.

As shown in the diagram the specified power supply does not need to be a complex stabilized but must be adequately filtered using high value filter capacitors. I personally recommend the following specifications for this 300 watt amplifier circuit power supply:


You can use a transformer with a secondary section that has a central socket 32-0-32 (or 64V with central socket). For a mono configuration it must have a current of 5A, for stereo 10A. The diodes should be at least 100V by 8A for mono and 100V for 16A for stereo. The capacitors must be 4700μF 63V each. Do not use higher voltages as this would affect the working curve of the capacitor (not filtering optimally).
