 8th December 2012, 04:52 PM #1 Joseph1   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Dec 2012 LM1875 Maximum Gain Guys I use LM1875 as a subwoofer amplifier.It is fed from a sallen key Fc=100Hz low pass filter circuit. Power supply is 25V DC dual supply. Speaker (subwoofer) = 8 Ohms I use gain by adjusting the feedback resister pair,(39K/0.56R)+1 = 70 Is this gain too high?What is the maximum gain it can handle?
 8th December 2012, 05:03 PM #2 AndrewT   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders that gain = 70 gives a maximum input of 200mVac. Does you low pass filter give good noise performance if the "maximum" signal is only 200mVac and the "normal" signal is <20mVac? __________________ regards Andrew T.

Thanks Andrew

My low pass filter uses KIA4558 opamp.Actually I don't know is it giving good noise performance

Please tell how did you calculate that 200mVac? Is that gain ok?

 8th December 2012, 05:17 PM #4 Joseph1   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Dec 2012 Hi Andrew thanks for the comment. How did you calculate maximum input = 200mVac...!!!! I use KIA4558 opamp for low pass filter.Is my gain too much?

This converts to an AC sinewave of ~14Vac Divide 14Vac by 70 and you get an input (for absolute maximum output) of 200mVac. But you can't play music at that level. More likely you will listen to music at about -20dB ref maximum output. That puts your input signal around 20mVac Another unhelpful posts to go along with post2? __________________ regards Andrew T.

Hi AndrewT now I understood the maximum input is 200mVac.

I'm new to this amplifier world.Those -20dB figures are newer to me.

You mean in my system the minimum input signal needs to be = 200mVac?But now I have 200mVac at maximum.

From how much gain do I need to reduce?What will be my new gain I have to set?

Thanks

Look up the output voltage levels and output impedance and recommended load impedance. Do this for each source that you may connect to the amplifier. When you have all this information then YOU can make an informed decision. Without any information, YOU and us will be guessing. Guess what? I don't recommend guessing. Make informed decisions !

 9th December 2012, 11:26 AM #8 Joseph1   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Dec 2012 Hi The main idea of my 2.1 system is to get compatible to a wider range of sources.It can be a DVD player,mp3 player or desktop onboard sound card. My mp3 player has 250mv sensitivity. Just concentrate on a single amp LM1875,it is feeding from a sallenkey filter.This is I call as a subwoofer amplifier. LM1875 gain = 22.6 pre amp (Filter) gain = 12.1 Supply voltage = 25V dc Now what is the minimum input sensitivity on my system?

Are you happy with single amp LM1875 for subwoofer amp ?

This is good for a small 2.1 system which can place in a room.But actually this is too loud for a room,& you can shake the room.This system is more louder & quality than commercial available 2.1 systems which is in below 150\$ budget.

First I need to fine tune this system & after I'm going to make a bigger one
