I am showing how to make an extreme bass 100 watts 2N3055 stereo amplifier homemade using dual transistors. 2N3055 transistor is widely used in power amplifiers for high gain. 2N3055 is a silicon NPN power transistor intended for general purpose applications. It was introduced in the early 1960s.
Following is the circuit diagram of dual 2N3055 stereo amplifier.
Following is the circuit diagram of volume bass & treble. I didnot use this circuit in this project because I used mp3 bluetooth kit instead. You can use it in place of mp3, if required.

Take 2 nos Heat Sink of 2N3055 individually and tighten both transistors on it with tiny nut and bolts. Remember, the metallic body of this transistor is internally connected with Collector. If you are not using MICA (insulation) then the positive current will pass through it. In this case keep the Negative wires away from the body. I brought the Base & Emitter connections in front side with the help of a piece of vero board for easy understanding for beginners. Now it is set as base-rmitter-collector from the left.
Connect two 680 ohms resistor to base (left) and collector (center) in both the transistors. Connect two 2200uf capacitor’s positive side to collector (center) in both transistors. Also connect two 0.33 ohms/5w resistor to collector (center) in both transistors. Join other end of both resistors together & solder it.
Connect negative voltage (black) ground of power supply to emitters of both the transistors together (right most pins). Connect positive current (red wire) to the center joint of both 0.33 ohms/5w resistors. Also connect two 220uf capacitor’s positive pin to the base (left) of both transistors.
Connecting MP3 player & output source
Following image shows the board of MP3 kit. If you don’t have the connectors with wire, you can solder wires separately. The upper two wires (black & red) are the input voltage for the board i.e. 5 volts dc. The lower three wire are audio out of left & right channels going to amplifier’s input. Left & blue are for audio while the black is ground.
You must provide 5 volts to MP3 kit by any mobile adapter/charger. If you want to run this kit with the same 12 volts of amplifier then you will have to use 7805 regulator ic to convert 12 volts into 5 volts. In the following image, the left pin receives +12 volts from amplifier and returns +5 volts through right most pin. Connect the ground to the center pin for both sides. Now join right side red & black wires with MP3’s upper two red & black wires.
Now solder the two audio out wires of left & right channels. The blue wire from MP3, to the negative pin of left side 220uf capacitor and the red wire to the negative pin of right side 220uf capacitor. Also connect the red wire from left pin of 7805 regulator ic to +12 volt red wire of power supply. And black wire from center pin of 7805 regulator ic to ground of 12v power supply.
In the last stage, connect the two speakers. Connect both speaker’s positive side to negative pins of both 4700uf capacitors and speaker’s negative will go to ground.
Now, synchronize your mobile with bluetooth and enjoy the music. Thank you so much for visiting this post.
