2 x 15W rms Audio Amp for small speakers
 
i have 2 2 way speakers for laptop and i want to build a discrete amplifier for these using tip41-tip42, 2n5551-2n5401,bc549-550. any schematic in mind?

I'm not familiar with all those devices, but you could look at something like the DX amplifier with 27V power rails.

isn't 15watt too low for classAB anyway ?

Maybe you should try the JLH Class A amp?

class A will create much heat and there will be the need for big heatsinks.i dont want to use ic's.I would like something with descrete components.

Tinitus Iremember the days when a 10 watt amp could be heard for two miles from the source on a farm! Fifty years ago we were happy with 5 watts/channel class A with a EL84 output tube. 15 watts with two in push pull fed a large Railway station with sound. So if he need it for his office or home with his computer then I think 15 watts class a/b will be ample! THIS IS WHY A LOT OF US HAVE TINNITUS AND ARE HARD OF HEARING? (pun intended):wchair:

You can do it with a pretty standard Lin/Blameless type topology.. powered from 18V rails or so. Use your TIP41/42 as the output transistors, and 2N5401/2N5551 for everything else.

This is really interesting....Class A amplifiers seems to play louder
 
It is non sense, but 10 watts in class A plays very loud.

Please folks, i cannot understand because i am not addicted nor skilled with the stuff, why this happens.

I have perceived that when i have increased the Dx Super A to 700mA per rail quiescent current.... i found it louder.... really louder than another amplifier playing almost same level.... say.... watching in the waveform it looks the same..but the Class A was louder while listening.

Thid does not make sense to me.... can you explain...please

regards,

Carlos

This is a blameless using those transistors you mention.
The power supply should use a transformer 2x15VAC, which will give like 20-21 VDC rails.
I have tested with SPICE. It should work.

I think tha the ideal for me would be jean hiraga's ''le monstre'' class A 8 watt,as described in other threads here in the forum and here JEAN HIRAGA - Le Monstre Amplifier PCB ,on monday i m going to have two speakers 7 watt rms/4ohm rated each like the ones in the picture. I dont know if the result willl be remarkable but maybe it worths giving it a try...
