Hi

Your English is good enough:
I hope this helps.

Max bass boost = (R1+R2) / R1

Max bass cut = R1 / (R1+R2)

Max treble boost = (R5+R1+2*R3) / R5

Max treble cut = R5 / (R5+R1+2*R3)

R4 shall be larger or equal to 10*(R5+R1+2*R3)

R2 shall be much larger than R1

In the example circuit:

Max bass boost = 20*log ((11k+100k)/11k) = 20dB

Max bass cut = 20*log (11k / (11k+100k)) = - 20dB

Max treble boost = 20*log ((3.6k+11k+2*11k) / 3.6k) = 20dB

Max treble cut = 20*log (3.6k / (3.6k+11k+2*11k)) = -20dB

Hi mckvak

Yes it is possible to use transistors instead of an opamp.

Maybe you should post the circuit you have made so far, that you would like to use the tone control with. If you have a gain stage maybe you should try to implement the tone control around that stage, or you could use a passive tone control.

 19th February 2013, 10:21 PM #7 andreidaniel   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Dec 2011 Location: Iasi city There are diagrams where instead of R5 is a capacitor let's say about 1.8 or 3.3nF in series with the treble potentiometer and even if instead of C2 in some diagrams appears a fix rezistor. How can you calculate in this case? Another diagrams omit even R5 and the treble potentiometer (R4) is connected directly in paralel with R1-R2-R1. Which is the formula for this case? Thank you!

 19th February 2013, 10:31 PM #9 andreidaniel   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Dec 2011 Location: Iasi city With that calculator you can calculate for passive Baxandall. I heard that a capacitor has a reactance.. Let's say 100nF ~ 6.8K rezistor.. How is modified the formula for the casese when there are capacitors?
