18 Watt Audio Amplifier with HA13118

This is a 18 Watt audio amplifier circuit based on power IC HA13118. The supply voltage required for this circuit is 8 – 18V DC, at least 1 to 2 Amps. Maximum output power will only be obtained with a power supply of 18V at greater than 2 A, using a 4 ohm speaker. The power supply should be well filtered to reduce mains hum, a regulated supply will reduce noise even further. Extra filtering is unnecessary if operating from a battery supply.

Components List:

Resistors :
R1, R2 ___________________ 2R2 ohm

Capacitors :
C1, C2, C4, C5, C6 _______ 100uF/16V electrolytic capacitor
C3 _______________________ 10uF/16V electrolytic capacitor
C7, C8, C12 ______________ 100nF
C9 _______________________ 2,200uF/25V electrolytic capacitor
C10 ______________________ 1uF/50V electrolytic capacitor
C11 ______________________ 100pF

I.C. _____________________ HA13118

C10 is the input coupling capacitor and blocks DC from the input. C11 bypasses any RF which may be present at the input. C1 & C2 provide an AC ground for the inverting inputs of the IC. R1/C7 and R2/C8 provide a high frequency load for stability with difficult speakers. C5 and C6 provide “bootstrap” feedback for the IC. C9 and C12 provide power supply filtering. Don’t forget that heatsink is a must for this class AB power amplifier circuit.
