Car Subwoofer Amplifier Circuit Diagram

Circuit Description:
This unit is intended to be connected to an existing car stereo amplifier, adding the often required extra “punch” to the music by driving a subwoofer. As very low frequencies are omnidirectional, a single amplifier is necessary to drive this dedicated loudspeaker. The power amplifier used is a good and cheap BTL (Bridge Tied Load) 13 pin IC made by Philips (now NXP Semiconductors) requiring a very low parts count and capable of delivering about 22W into a 4 Ohm load at the standard car battery voltage of 14.4V.
The stereo signals coming from the line outputs of the car radio amplifier are mixed at the input and, after the Level Control, the signal enters the buffer IC1A and can be phase reversed by means of SW1. This control can be useful to allow the subwoofer to be in phase with the loudspeakers of the existing car radio. Then, a 12dB/octave variable frequency Low Pass filter built around IC1B, Q1 and related components follows, allowing to adjust precisely the low pass frequency from 70 to 150Hz. Q2, R17 and C9 form a simple dc voltage stabilizer for the input and filter circuitry, useful to avoid positive rail interaction from the power amplifier to low level sections.

TDA2030 Audio Amplifier 1 x40W

TDA2030 general description:    Although there are a number of hybrid output modules on the market, very few of them combine compactness with reasonable price and good performance. One of these few is SGS's used in the present amplifier. The design of the amplifier is straightforward: a power op-amp followed by two output transistors. The audio signal is applied to the non-inverting input of power op-amp IC1 TDA2030 via socket K1 and capacitor C1. The supply current to the IC varies in accordance with the input signal. Consequently, there will be a similarly varying voltage drop across resistors R6, R7, R8, and R9 since these are in the supply lines to the op-amp. As long as the current is lower than about 1A, the voltage drop across the resistors will be insufficient to switch on transistors T1 and T2. This means that outputs up to 2 W into 4 ohm are provided entirely by the op-amp. Once the output current exceeds a level of 1A, the transistors are on and contribute to the power …
