 15th January 2013, 06:34 PM #11 Kitax   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2012 Location: Riga w8... if i use 24x2 (2.08 amp) transformer, and the actual supply voltage is +/- 24v, not 24v, doesnt it mean, that the full voltage is 48v, and if i put a 100w amp it uses 100/48 wich is about 1.04A, so if i put 2 of the 100W amps the total amperage is 2.08A, and it shouldent burn... am i right?
 15th January 2013, 06:58 PM #12 Mooly   diyAudio Moderator     Join Date: Sep 2007 OK, so 100 watts RMS into 4 ohm means you need to develop 20 volts RMS at the amp output. Thats worked out as V = square root (100*4). 20 volts RMS is 28.28 volts peak and 56.56 volts peak to peak (that's Vrms * root 2) So we need at least 28.28 volts DC as a rail PLUS losses which are losses in the chip and general resistive losses. So around 35 volts DC would seem suitable. Thats 35-0-35 volts. If you built a single rail amp then that would be a single 70 volt rail. Yes So the transformer needs to be 35 divided by root 2 which is 24.75 volts AC. So a 25-0-25 volt transformer should cover it. The VA rating of the transformer needs to be determined. Ipeak = Vpeak/R so that is 28.28/4 which is 7 amps Iaverage is Ipeak/pi which is 7/3.142 which is 2.23 amps. That's for one channel, so you are looking at a 160va transformer for mono and over 300va for stereo. Build in a good margin and that means using a 500va transformer (as a standard off the shelf part) Next question.... do you really (really really) need 100 watts RMS ?

 16th January 2013, 07:29 AM #14 Mooly   diyAudio Moderator     Join Date: Sep 2007 It doesn't quite work like that in practice. Transformers are rated for their max current into a resistive load. A bridge rectifier and reservoir caps draws "a lot of current for short time" on each cycle as the bridge only conducts at the tops of the sine wave to bring the caps back to full voltage. For most of the cycle no current flows. So in practice... its a bit on the small side for two channels.

 16th January 2013, 11:01 AM #18 Mooly   diyAudio Moderator     Join Date: Sep 2007 The TDA7295 looks to have a lower max supply rating. Making PCB's is something you have to learn by doing. Nail varnish is probably etch proof but the end result won't be pretty. You can get etch resist pens and transfers. The board in your picture looks a fibre glass roller tinned board. Why don't you get a PCB ready made, I think they are advertised from the usual suspects
 16th January 2013, 11:36 AM #19 Kitax   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2012 Location: Riga well thats not what i ment... well nevermind that only now i realize, how bad i know english terms actually the transformer i was talking about is 2x24V 2x2.08A and i found a datasheet with graphs Here http://www.datasheetcatalog.org/data...08fj3sqq3y.pdf it seems that with 8 ohm speakers, and +/- 34V power supply the max output power is somewhere around 80w, that means, that i can safely put 2 of the chips with the transformer, cant i? it doesnt have the 4ohm speaker supply vs power output graph though...
 16th January 2013, 01:35 PM #20 Mooly   diyAudio Moderator     Join Date: Sep 2007 Yes, you can safely use two chips on that transformer but the transformer is the limiting factor. Fuse the transformer correctly and there is no problem. You can always replace with a larger transformer if you want later on, but for normal use the amp will be just fine.
