Hi people,

I intend to make a amplifier circuit for a loudspeaker.
With the high tone and mid tone, i will use a opamp and a darlington
transistor
With the bass tone, a IRF and a Pi-filter will be applied.

can anybody support me some idea. I think my plan lacks many things,

i am looking forward hearing from you soon

Do you mean your amp will have three outputs, for the woofer, mid-range,
and tweeter?

Is this homework? Most people just use a plain amplifier, and a passive
crossover right at the speaker cabinet.

If it _is_ homework, then go back and reread the textbook. If that doesn't
question, then I'll take the course for you and spoon-feed you the answers
for US$165.00/hr. Good Luck! Rich J #### joseph2k Jan 1, 1970 0 Rich said: Do you mean your amp will have three outputs, for the woofer, mid-range, and tweeter? Is this homework?

Damn, Rich you work cheap. I am already US\$250/hr with 8 hour minimum.

Hi Rich and joseph2k,

I made a mistake when i posted my discussion,
I will make three amplifier, each for one
I think that this forum is a place which everyone can discuss together
to improve his knowledge, but you use this forum to advertise. I think
you should not do that. Do you agree with me???

I hope i will receive some ideas from some body,

have a nice day,

Him Lam

Well, considering you haven't bothered to answer any of my questions, I
was only informing what it would cost to have me do your work for you,
which you seem to be unwilling to do for yourself, and want it done for
free at that!

Good Luck!

Hi

All of things, I thank for you. I wil not argue with you more. I also
get what things i need.

Have a nice day,

Yes, you don't need any transistors at all for the 'tone' stages.

How about explaining exactly what it is you want to do ?

You should be posting to sci.electronics.basics That group is more tolerant
of the ignorant. Plus, you are arrogant for demanding that others do for
free what you are too ignorant to do for yourself.

My sig says it clearly. Google if you do not understand it.

Hi Garham,

I intend to make a plan following:
- a amplifier stage for high tone
- a amplifier stage for mid tone
- pwm for bass

the audio source come from DAC. A amplifier stage to amplify the
voltage and a transistor to amplify the current. If we don not use a
trans how we can get high current. Do you any idea?

I am looking forward hearing from you

I agree 100%.

Is .vn Vietnam btw ? Looks like it, it goes via Hong Kong. I didn't realise they
were as arrogant as the Indians !

OK. You can happily combine all your tone controls around one or two stages with
op-amps. One op-amp is acceptable but two gives less control 'interaction' which
is a 'good thing' !

- pwm for bass

Just a pwm (class D) for the bass ? You also want a linear class AB amplifier
for the mid and highs I expect ?

the audio source come from DAC.

From a PC perhaps ? What signal voltage level ?

A amplifier stage to amplify the voltage and a transistor to amplify the
current.

You need more than just 'a transistor' to do that !

If we don not use a trans how we can get high current. Do you any idea?

Why don't you explain what ideas you have been looking at so far ?

The choice of parts to use will be heavily influenced by the power levels you
want to achieve.

Hi,

First of all things, i do not know how people can use the language of
not_educated person on this forum. I post my idea to ask everyone, but
i do not ask anyone do it for me freely. All of your ideas are only
preferent for me. I am not an ignorant. Maybe you do not know, I am a
Physics professor. I only want to find some thing about electronic
field. You should know, every one on the world have equal rights.

Hi, Graham

the audio comes from FPGA kit. First i intend to use an opamp to
amplify voltage then use a darlington to go current output high.
Input voltage is about 3.3V, I would like an output power about 10w
for high tone, 20w for midtone. And Pwm to output bass, power is about
70w. here is my idea.

I know, I need many components to complete my design, but all
mentinoned above is the main parts.

Have a nice day!

Mr Himlam, best would be if you first just tried to design a simple class
AB audio amp.
Indeed ...basics is then a good group.

'a darlington' sucks, as you need a push pull design, so make that 2, and
perhaps do not use darlingtons... there are better designs.

If you never made a class D amp, try to make one from some existing design,
see if it stays in one piece.....

Or if you know all these things already, then show us the diagram so we can
throw mud at it, or hang a gold medal on it.

Else it is all too vague.
Speaker impedance, frequency ranges, supply volatge, efficiency required,
space available, thermal properties of speaker case, heatsinks,
all these things you should know before you start.
For class D RFI may be a problem too.

Said the idiot that has already declared himself as only being a
tech.

Did you spam this guy for a consulting fee, tech boy? I didn't read
the thread, but it looks like I don't need to.

What a joke you are.

Yes, everyone has equal rights to post here, but that goes hand in
hand with everyone else's right to express their opinion, as well.

OK, it depends on what the final outcome - what's the purpose of doing
this? If it is to learn how to build the thing on your own, then the
clear course of action is to take some classes or at least get some
basic electronics books.

If the intent is to just get the thing going, for example if it's
just a way to make these waveforms, then you'd be better off to buy
something off-the-shelf, or have it done by a professional.

Good Luck!
Rich
