 27th September 2012, 02:37 PM #1 snakebite   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Aug 2011 my first amp based on lme49830 hello, this is my first post here so i introduce myself. i'm study EE in uni. i'm now on my last year and maybe this will be my graduate project! before i'm starting my project, i wanted to ask a question about the transformer. i know it's better to use a toroide type transformer because of the low noise high effictioncy and the small profile but i'd like to know which one i need. i'm planning to build 100w x 5 amp @ 8ohm . so based on ohm's power law: P=I * V = V^2 / R = I^2 * R so if i need P=100W and R=8ohm V=28.28VDC (after the rectifing , smothing and regulation) A= 3.5A. is it correct? or i need a safe margine? based on this i need a transformer rated on about 500VA (or more??) ?? thanks Ido
 27th September 2012, 03:26 PM #2 AndrewT   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders if you build one channel (two channels won't get you any higher grade) then expect a 100VA to 200VA transformer to successfully power a 100W amplifier. If you want that 100W into 8ohms speaker the use a 35+35Vac transformer to get the PSU voltage right. But here's me giving you the answers. __________________ regards Andrew T.

 28th September 2012, 12:54 AM #5 snakebite   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Aug 2011 what you mean by "just playing music" and if i watch DIVX movies it won't be enough?? can you explain yourself...?

If you knew basically how an amplifier works its very easy to make a psu for it. __________________ Audio projects and more: gswdh.co.uk

Doesn't matter.

 28th September 2012, 03:53 PM #9 sreten   R.I.P.   Join Date: Nov 2003 Location: Brighton UK Hi, Unfortunately EE courses don't teach most of the basics of sensible cost effective analogue audio design, or teach you any common sense regarding properly selecting and properly dimensioning components and hardware for higher power audio amplifiers, and that ends up being a matter of opinion as well as design. The decision process for a power supply is far more complicated than outlined in the initial post but with experience designers settle on "rules of thumb" that simply won't do in a project write-up. Different designers can have different "rules of thumb". Different rules can apply if cost is the major issue compared to performance (at higher cost) being the major issue. There are no simple answers. Good design is balancing these factors. rgds, sreten. Generally I don't like Mosfet outputs with simple supplies as you lose too much voltage swing at the output for me.

From memory LME49830 stipulates min gain of 26dB for stability.
