Default confused with with schematic


I was looking at the tda 2030A datasheet ( and on page 10, they have a schematic of a active filter tri amp, each amp having the filter on its input. very interesting.

However, the circuit is designed around using a single source 36v supply.
With my limited electronics knowledge, I cant figure out how that works, considering that the chip's max is 18v

Could someone, point me in a direction where or how I can learn more on what they are doing to give the chip the correct voltage?

I guess the filtering will also work if the seperate amps were powered from +/- rails?

Thanks a bunch.

The chip's max is +/-18V, which is just like 36V. Note the input and output coupling caps.

From the spec, the absolute max supply voltage is +/- 22 V. It is equivalent to single-rail 44 V. An app note from TI, SLOA058, describes single-supply op-amp. TDA2030 is essentially a power op-amp.
