Sine Wave Generator (1KHz Frequency)

This is iKHz sine wave generator circuit built based on configuration of inverted Wien bridge (see C1-R3 & C2-R4). R5 and R7 used for output amplutide setting. Set R5 to read 1V RMS on an Audio Millivoltmeter connected to the output with R7 rotated fully clockwise, or to view a sinewave of 2.828V Peak-to-Peak amplitude on the oscilloscope.

  • The bulb must be a low current type (12V 40-50mA or 6V 50mA) in order to obtain good long term stability and low distortion.
  • Using a bulb differing from specifications may require a change of R6 value to 220 or 150 Ohms to ensure proper circuit's oscillation.
  • With C1, C2 = 100nF the frequency generated is 100Hz and with C1, C2 = 1nF frequency is 10KHz but R5 requires adjustment.
  • High gain transistors are preferred for better performance.

Audio Power Indicator

This is audio level indicator which can be used to measure the audio level output of your amplifier. Simply connect the output of your amplifier to the input of this circuit, then you will know the average value of your amplifier's power.

  • The output power indicated by each LED must be doubled when 4 Ohms loads are driven.
  • The circuit can be adapted to suit less powerful amplifiers by reducing the number of LEDs and related voltage dividers.
  • LEDs of any dimension can be used, but rectangular shaped devices will be more suitable to be compacted in bars or columns.
  • For a stereo amplifier, two identical circuits are required.
