here's a graph of the proto-Bridgeclone and the newer version --

changes -- the snubber resistors were changed to 5.6R from 2.7R, the layout is a little cleaner -- the power supply for both test amplifiers were identical. the distortion at 1kHz was 0.0019%, up a tad from the first run.

What is abundantly clear after testing this amplifier at 100 watts is that you can't kid around with the heatsinking of the chip in the bridged version. Machine screws are not sufficient to get the best contact between the chip and heatsink -- you have to use a fixture which compresses the chip against the sink and thermal grease.

Default Care to Share your board design??

jackinnj would you consider posting your pcb design so that I (we) could give it a shot?

the schematic follows the National Semi design, and the PCB design follow this -- from the hints that they give you on their zipped files and the pictures of the finished board you should be able to do it pretty quickly -- if you want to roll your own remember that the size of the LM4780's pins are 21 mils. I put a power plane on the bottom and ran the power leads at (I think) 200 mils.

Default Ballanced bridge clone

I have some designing problems with mij bridge clone,
I`am using a jensen JT-11p-1 input transformer as a buffer.
which drives (+ and -) a total of 4 non-inverted lm3886`s

can the scematic (pic) be used as it is?

what resistor values do i need for best impendance matching?

R1= 1K?(riken ohm)

What resistor values for R2,R3? (22k , 680R vishay s102)

My powersupply wil be a 2X22v= 500va torroid

R4=0,22ohm dale


Maybe Kuei Yang Wang can help me on the trafo thing......
