C5200 A1943 amplifier DIY homemade

Here I will show you, how to make a powerful amplifier using C5200 and A1943 transistors. I used 3 nos C5200 NPN and A1943 PNP transistors each of which I will connect each other in parallel. A combination of C5200 & A1943 amplifiers is widely used for high gain.

Volume, bass, and treble controllers are also attached for more control of sound frequency. The MP3 player kit is also attached which allows users to use a USB device, memory card, and mobile. I demonstrated the circuit with 12 volts DC from a PC power supply of 5 amperes but you can use 12 volts to 18 volts DC. I used 4 ohms 120 watts speakers which provided a greater sound.

First, take a large Heat sink where 6 transistors could easily be placed. First, fix 3 transistors 2SC5200 left side and then 3 transistors 2SA1943 right side. You must use (MICA) for proper insulation. The base plate should not touch with the heat sink as both transistors have opposite polarities and will cause a short circuit.

Now join 2 diodes 1N4148 minus end with plus end. Now, one minus end solder with pin.1 (base) of 2SA1943 (right group). And the other plus end solder with pin.1 (base) of 2SC5200 (left group). Connect the collector of 2SC2383 to the center joint of 1N4148. Then solder 100k resistor from collector to base of 2SC2383. Connect the emitter of 2SC2383 to the ground at the collector of 2SA1943. Solder one end of 1k resistor to the base of 2SC2383 and the other end to 220uf positive side. Now, solder the last resistor between the base and collector of 2SC5200.

Connecting input & output sources.

Take one black piece of connection wire. Join one end to pin.3 of volume control and the other end to any collector of 2SA1943 for ground. Connect one more wire of any color from the center pin of the volume control to the negative side of the 220uf capacitor for audio-in of the amplifier.
