This is is a stereo power amplifier circuit works up to 22W on each channel. It will be 2x22W output. A few externel components required to support the main component of TDA1554. Heatsink on the power IC is a must to prevent overheating on the power IC. The chip should run cool enough to touch with the proper heatsink installed.
Component part list:
R1__________39K 1/4 Watt Resistor
C1,C2_______10uf 25V Electrolytic Capacitor
C3__________100uf 25V Electrolytic Capacitor
C4__________47uf 25V Electrolytic Capacitor
C5__________0.1uf 25V Ceramic Capacitor
C6__________2200uf 25V Electrolytic Capacitor
U1__________TDA1554 Two Channel Audio Amp Chip
MISC________Heatsink For U1, Binding Posts (For Output), RCA Jacks (For Input)
Operated at 12 Volts and at about 5 Amps at full volume. Lower volumes use less current, and therefore produce less heat. Printed circuit board is preferred, but universal solder or perf board will do. Keep lead length short.
