First attempt to build a Power amp!
 
Hi to all! I've build a Power amp based on the TDA7250 that i think is a good amp and economic amp!
I use a SMPS as Power Supply. From +14 to +/-42V@2.2A that i think should be enough for this amp.
OR not?
My problem is that i don't ear no sound from it.. what should be? I know that maybe a mistake on soldering but
What are the main things to check...?
As Q1 and Q2 i've used TIP142/147 that should be enough to have 70W+

Thanx in advance for all the suggest and to all the ppl that will give an answer...

I have no clue what the problem is, but next time, please don't post the same question in 3 different forums.

Firstly, as I'm sure you're aware...you only need to post this in one forum. Since the heart of this circuit is an IC, it should go in either the Car Audio or Chip Amps forums. If it is for a car then you have a choice - otherwise it should be in the Chip Amps. People will answer you if they want to and spam won't change that.

Assuming that all is soldered correctly (check for dry solder joints) then you should check pinouts (especially for short circuits at input signal, power supply and output signal.

Have you measured the voltage in the power supply at the pins of the chip?

Pretty complicated for first amp... you should stick with something like the LM3886...that was my first high power amp. After I figured out it needs a split supply and not a single, it worked the first time. www.national.com

TDA7250 - nice chip
 
Hi MaXiZ

Nothing wrong with chip. The schematic you showed is not meant for TIP142/147.

You can find some info here:

At http://www.ampslab.com/ia502schema.htm is reported to use the 142/147 and u say to don't use them.. why?
And i saw "input sensitivity 1v".. This mean that if my car stereo give and output of 30mV@360mA i can't hear nothing. Right?

check your rails for power...if there is...check for any obvious connecion problems and heating...

MaXiZ 28th September 2003 08:26 AM

I?ve made some test.. And i've discovered this...
The circuit take 0.95A.. Normal?

Can you also post a few pcitures...had to imagine what you are building frm here...hehe

Sure and the power is less than 1v so if i'm not wrong this mean that all the power is take from the circuit right?

I'll make some now.. if u'll be patient! ;) :clown:
