Default 15W 8 ohm simple amp

I want to make compact multimedia stereo amplifier. I also want to put subwoofer amp in same small box hence heat will a problem. I wish to use the fairchild opamp amplifier circuit for satellite speakers. I think it will generate less heat & very easy & compact to make. I am doubtful about 10 ohm resistor value in the circuit. I need comments and suggestions about the circuit behaviour.

This is a similar circuit but with current feedback. Could give you some ideas perhaps.

Hei e96mlo!

Your circuit is not so identical...it is very diferent in the propouse.
In the Palesha circuit you have a voltage amplifier...in your circuit you have a transconductance amplifier(one that outupt a current proporcional to voltage imput).
that put us the old question:is a loudspeaker a current or voltage drived device?
So the 2 circuits will have a very diferent sound because the output inpedance of the Palesha circuit will be near zero and it have a high damping factor...the e96mlo circuit will have a near infinite output impedance(it behaves as a current source)so the damping factor will be near zero.

Palesha's schematic is not so very often used circuit that works as follows: an op. amp. modulates +Is, -Is supply current according to a signal level. Those supply current changes are monitored by output transistors connected in common emitter way. The feedback resistors estimate a voltage gain. I would prefer "standard" circuit with OA and 2 transistors increasing OA output current.
