Subwoofer Amplifier with Power SOCL 500W

In this project, I will make a special power amplifier for the subwoofer speaker that I use for a power amplifier circuit that is Power SOCL 500W which use 2SC5200 and 2SA1943 final transistor 1 set/pair. Then for my subwoofer preamp use 4558 subwoofer filter/ 4558 subwoofer module. For power amplifier and subwoofer filter, each requires different power supply voltage. This power amplifier can be supplied with power supply from 25V to 63V DC Symmetrical. And for my subwoofer preamp circuit use 15V regulator power supply using IC 7815 and 7915

The power supply of subwoofer preamp needs stable starting from 12V to 15V recommend from me. Above 15V, the filter subwoofer circuit can generate buzzing noise or even damage the IC 4558. It is recommended to use 12 or 15 Volt regulator power supply, which will make stable voltage so good for sound and component itself. The following circuit scheme for subwoofer power amplifier using SOCL + preamp subwoofer.
Subwoofer Power Amplifier Circuit

In the circuit scheme to get more details the circuit please click the link that is in the first paragraph. For the circuit connection, you can see in the schematic above, there is a power supply voltage connection, where the power supply for the preamp subwoofer is taken from the output of 7815 and 7915 while the input of the regulated power supply is taken directly from the symmetric voltage of the power amplifier. You can take the voltage + and - only, while the ground is connected to all circuits.

Power SOCL 500W Subwoofer Amplifier

For input sound signal output that enter from the media player, go first to the subwoofer filter circuit and will be forwarded to the power amplifier, so the output of this SOCL power amplifier becomes a low tone which is good for subwoofer speakers.

This subwoofer power amplifier circuit is very satisfactory, which can control 12-inch subwoofers with ease. See the following SOCL power subwoofer amplifier videos, making amplifier and test with subwoofer speaker.

Clip Indicator for Power Amplifier

Clip Indicator for Power Amplifier Circuit
There are many indicator clip circuit on the internet, with various models and design, starting from the easy to the hard. But in this article let us discuss the circuit of clip indicators that are easy and simple to be made with the advanced function of the clip indicator itself.

Clip Indicator power amplifier is a tool for detecting limits or clipping of audio signal power amplifier. Why should be installed clip indicator tool? Actually, this is the accessories and additions to make the power amplifier, so it is not installed is not a problem. I think this Clip Indicator Circut is very important because we can monitor the maximum limit of the out power amplifier so there will be no overdrive that can cause the sound broke and damage the speakers.

Clip indicator circuit is very simple and we can make it yourself easily and cheaply. Below is a circuit diagram of indicator clip for power amplifier:

This circuit requires a supply voltage that we can take from a positive supply power amplifier, so do not need additional power supply again. For clip indicator connection position on PCB power amplifier. My power amplifier PCB take example use PCB power Yiroshi Amplifier. For other PCB power I think it same, just different position of the layout only. Here is the image clip indicator connection on PCB power.

High Power Amplifier Matrix 1.4

Power amplifier circuit this one is a circuit of power amplifiers with a high power output category. This circuit is called the power amplifier matrix with version 1.4 designed by Heru Himawan Tejo Laksono, this power has a character flat voice with low DCO (DC Offset) and low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion), it's very suitable for use in the room or outdoors. Below the circuit schematic of power amplifier driver Matrix 1.4:
 Power Amplifier Matrix 1.4 Circuit Schematic
Component List
RV1,RV2_____________10K Trim
J1___________________Audio Input
J2___________________VCC- 90V
J4___________________VCC+ 90V

Before you make PCB and assemble this power amplifier I will explain a little how to setting DCO and BIAS Power Amplifier on the schematic above that which is marked in blue for DCO (DC Offset) and red for BIAS Voltage.

Before stepping on how to setup DCO and BIAS power amplifier, it would be better if you first met these two terms. Maybe for the audio experts already understand this term, but it never hurts me to discuss again this term. Because these two terms are closely related to our power amplifier and very influential and determine the good quality of the output power amplifier that we produce. Maybe all this time we can only assemble power amplifier can sound, have stopped there. It turns out that there are many variables in the power amplifier that we can set in order to get the best sound quality. Not all power amplifiers have DCO and BIAS settings. 

But actually, from all the power amplifier circuit, there must be a DCO and BIAS. So why is there any power that does not have VR DCO and its VR BIAS? Actually, it exists, but already in the patent set or has been fixed with a certain value with the maximum results according to the manufacturer. The goal is to be safe and not in the brain-tweaking again and live just plug the sound directly, of course, this is very profitable for the assemblers, rather than having to struggle first for DCO and BIAS settings.

DCO (DC Offset)
DCO or DC Offset is the DC voltage that comes out on the speaker output power amplifier. The excessively high DC voltage that comes out in the speaker output can be very dangerous and can cause our speaker's spool to burn. Therefore the DC voltage at the speaker output should be avoided. Most large-wattage power amplifiers use dual or symmetrical voltage (positive-ground-negative) and connect the amplifier's output directly to speakers without capacitors. Output amplifier may contain DC voltage although small and not dangerous for a speaker. The DC voltage at the output of this amplifier is called DC offset.

DCO Setting
Where potency RV1 10K is used to adjust the DC offset on the output line to the speakers to get DC offset close to 0 volts or must be below 20 mV. How to use multimeter set scale on DC voltmeter in DC range of 2.5 volts range. Then connect the red probe to the speaker output and black probe to ground or CT. Then set VR P1 to get the lowest DC offset (close to zero or below 20mV).

BIAS Amplifier
Then about BIAS power amplifier. There are several opinions about this. Some say BIAS is the magnitude of the final tr collector current and some say BIAS is the voltage between the base and the emitter or the base and base of the final transistor pair. And there is also a voltage measurement on both the tr driver base. So there are several kinds of measurements for this BIAS. And there are also some measuring techniques in another way to check this BIAS parameter.

BIAS Setting
Where RV2 10K is used to set BIAS on the power amplifier. How to use multimeter set of 500mA scale. Then disconnect the VCC + cable and connect the series. For connections are red probes connect to VCC + Elco power supply. And black probe connect to VCC + pcb power amplifier. Turn on the power amplifier and set it until the multimeter points to 50mA. You can check on the VCC voltage path as well. 
With the reverse connection ie red probe to VCC- PCB power amplifier and black probe connect to VCC- power supply Elco. To produce a more quality sound output can be set BIAS up to 120mA. But the bigger the Bias current the better the audio quality and the risk is the power amplifier will get hotter. Then you should give the heatsink enough and given fan or fan as an additional cooler, so as not to over heat. In fact you can set Bias current up to 250mA, provided that the resulting offset DC remains close to zero, it will remain safe with the risk of more heat power.

After you understand a little explanation above, just let's make this power amplifier by using PCB Layout design below with size 13cm x 6.5cm:

1000W Power Amplifier PCB Layout Design

Transistor amplifier with common emitter configuration is one of the most widely used configurations compared to a common base and common collector, Whether it is for audio, video, high-frequency amplifier, and others. This is because the amplifier with common transistor emitter configuration will amplify the current and voltage simultaneously.

The input signal to the output on the common emitter is reversed phase. Thus making it more powerful power amplifier, and to discharge power up to 1000W Power Supply will require a capable, if not then the power will be a useless or wasteful component when compared with a good power supply. For example, the power supply is used at least 10A 55V. And to add more power you can upgrade the final part of 2SC5200 and 2SA1943 transistors into more. Thank you and Good Luck.
