first atemp to make a gc gone wrong

i have just made the gc from http://sound.westhost.com/project19.htm but with the lm3886 instead and this psu http://sound.westhost.com/project04.htm but with 4700 caps instead.. im using a 2*24v 300va trafo
i have no pcb so i have just wired the components together..

the big problem is large noise/hum and a tiny bit of music... :bawling:

i cant see what i have done wrong... can you experts give me a hint what i have done wrong???

sorry about my poor english
 
Wuffer, if it helps to copy a 'tried and tested' design for the LM3886, here is the one that I built. I have not had time yet to write up the full description of the build on Decibel Dungeon.

The orange square is the signal star ground. And note that this was with a snubberized PSU. If you don't want to use that PSU, substitute the 100uF caps on the voltage pins for 1000uF and leave out the big caps at the bottom of the diagram.

much closer now... i think the wire i have used is bad.. it influence the sound in a bad direction... not sure what to do...

damn the lm3886 is getting hot. hat hoped that a heatsink from a p4 could be used but no :(

but now there is music coming out of the speaker instead of noise.. now i just have to get the last noise away

Unlikely.

If the 3886 is getting hot, then your amp is probably oscillating badly. I've used heatsinks much smaller than a P4 one, and at low to medium volumes, the chip gets only slightly warm.

Tear it down and start again from the ground up. Nuuk's diagram looks solid; try following that.
 
To makes things a little clearer:

The 0R22 resistor on the output should be rated at 3 watts. Many of us are using two 0R47 2 watt carbon film resitors in parallel.

The Zobel is a 100nF capacitor in series with a 2R7 resistor.

As Mateo88 says, the DC blocker is a capacitor (2.2uF-4.7uF) that lets the signal (AC) through but blocks DC.

Looking at a schematic will also be useful but the 'layout' diagrams are useful to show people where the parts go! ;)
