This is a class AB 6-10W audio power amplifier circuit which built using a TDA2002 or TDA2003 power amplifier IC module. These are replacements for the original LM383 which is no longer available. It is easy to build and has a minimum of external components. The module has both short circuit protection and thermal protection. It can drive loads as low as 1.6 ohm and is capable of delivering over 10 watts from a 16 V supply.

> 10 W RMS, 2 ohm load, 16V DC supply.
> 6W RMS, 4 ohm load, 16V DC supply.
> 4W RMS, 4 ohm load, 12V DC supply.
THD: < 0.2% (1W, 4 ohm load)
Gain: 40 dB maximum.
S/N ratio :
> 80 dBA. (G = 20 dB)
> 60 dBA (G = 40 dB)
Frequency response: < 20 Hz to > 40 kHz (-3dB, 4 ohm load)
< 100 mV for full output (G = 40 dB)
< 1V for full output(G = 20 dB)
Maximum output power will only be obtained with a power supply of greater than 1A at 16V DC, and using 2 ohm speakers (or 2 by 4 ohm speakers in parallel). However approximately 4W RMS can be obtained with a 12V DC, 1A supply into a 4 ohm load.
The power supply should be well filtered to reduce mains hum, the on board capacitors alone are not adequate for this purpose but are necessary to ensure stability. Extra filtering is unnecessary if operating from a battery. If two boards are used for stereo, you will need to double the size of the power supply.
