Default Looking for ultimate Chips for Home Theatre

Recently, I have completed my First DIY Home theatre with TDA1554q (car amp - Single Supply) It's sounding good for me. I want to know is there any best chip/amplifier than TDA1554q for home theatre ?

TDA1554q was selected ..
1) due to availability to my place.
2) Due to few Component count.
3) Stereo, I used midrange & Tweeter one IC per channel (Big advantage to me)
4) works on 12 to 15V
5) Using this chip for Subwoofer but not satisfied.

Thank you & Regards.

With these sorts of questions, what do you define as "ULTIMATE"?
What do you want?

Sound quality? Price? Power output? Ease of Assembly? Kits?

1) Simple to build. ( I may prefer 4 x 25 watt Car audio )
2) "ULTIMATE" in sound quality
3) Price does not matter ( Chip should be easy available )
4) Power Output 25 Watt per Speaker i.e. Mid/Woofer 25 watt + Tweeter 25 watt = 50 Watt Per channel

I wish to know the audio/sound quality difference between...
Amplifier having [ (+),(-), Ground ] supply AND Amplifier having [ (+), Ground ]

Differences for both Amplifier & Pre-amplifier (Crossover)

Car audio ICs and ultimate sound quality exclude each other more or less. Read through the forum. You will find most of your answers are already there.

What is the impedance? You will need around 23-24 V for 25 W into 8 Ohm and around 17-18 V for 25 W into 4 Ohm.

Is there any particular reason, why you want 25 W per speaker? Did you find out, what W are good for?

You could have drawn some conclusions from your first project:
- the woofer usually needs more power than the tweeter.
- 25 W is little for a woofer
- 25 W is a lot for a tweeter.

Your current setup is a good opportunity to get a deeper understanding about electronics, speakers and their interaction. Don't build anything new, before you know, what you are doing. Tweak, what you have and see, how it turns out.
- Start with a new transformer with a single secondary 12 V 15 A for your amplifiers.
- Use the transformer you have to build a split power supply for your preamp/crossover.
- Find out more about your speakers and fine tune the speaker enclosures and the crossover to them. There is also a loudspeaker forum here.
- Use the search function of the forum and learn about hum and noise issues and how other people solved them. Try, if anything that worked for them, works for you.

I was surprised with the nice sounds I got from the TDA7350 IC's. I used them in bridge mode for ~22W per channel.

pacificblue Now I understood that Woofer needs more power than tweeter. You know My amp its sounding good for high & Mid frequency I have installed tweeter (BRAND=SHARP) it's sounding high frequency very good. Passive crossover installed before amping. From one month approx. I am working for subwoofer. All of you have teach me good electronics. My pre-amp & amp has no error but it's ability to drive the sub is poor, becoz I need more power for sub. ( I have searched at NET & found nobody using car amp for home theatre )

At my place 5 A is MAX available for 12-0 V

Here I want to ask you : now my preamp is working on single supply. If I run it on split power supply then my subwoofer sound will improved ? ( I am ready to scrap my current preamp )

@ DigitalJunkie I using tda1554q

@ andrewlebon Please post schematic for tda2052. Should I try for subwoofer ? If you are using it please post sub-crossover.

Thank you & Regards.

You can connect several in parallel, if they are exactly the same transformer type.

Don't connect them in parallel, if they are different types. With different transformer types you will need to build separate power supplies for each transformer and connect groups of your amplifiers to them, e. g. woofer and tweeter of one channel to one power supply, woofer and tweeter of the other channel to the second power supply, etc.

Or you can look elsewhere, e. g. here or here or in a lamp shop, where they sell halogen lighting. They need 12 V transformers with high power rating as well, but don't buy an electronic transformer for that purpose.

It will not give you more output power. And it will also not help you, if the enclosure for the subwoofer and the driver are mismatched. E. g. an enclosure that is too small, will reduce the maximum sound pressure level that you can achieve. A woofer with Thiele/Small parameters for a bass-reflex enclosure will give unsatisfying results in a closed box with whatever amplifier. A woofer with too little stroke will not be able to convert additional amplifier power into additional sound pressure level.

Don't. You will still need it.

A good pure digital amplifier will get you an extremely high SNR and no low level analog signals that are sensitive to noise. Of course, your source device would have to be able to output digital in order to use a pure digital amplifier. Hybrid digitals work with analog devices but get a lower, though still very good, SNR. (One chip that comes to mind is the TPA3122D2 since that's what my friend used in one of his projects.)

There is no problem with using separate power supplies for the different channels and may in fact be cheaper than one large power supply.
