Would I be able to get 10A or will I get only 0.3A ? Thank you Arvind

0.3A

 4th January 2013, 02:48 PM #4 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Dec 2012 Thanks DUG , wahab. So is it possible to convert 12V(10A) to say 24V (2A) using some simple circuit? Any help appreciated. Thanks

I purchased an assembled unit for \$4. Nice deal, works well.

The net result will be about the same, and the BTL won't need the output capacitor that 24V single rail needs. Car type BTL chip amplifiers are very mature. rgds, sreten.

True, but he did ask for a circuit - not a black box.
