Take one large enough heat sink and stick the two transistors 2SC5200 & 2SA1943 with the insulation (mica). In this tutorial, I placed 2SC5200 left side. Be sure the transistors back plate should not touch the heat sink. Take two 1N4148 diodes and join their plus & minus together. From rest of the ends, connect the plus black line side to the base pin.1 of 2SC5200 and the minus side to the base pin.1 of 2SA1943. Take transistor 2SC2383 and connect its emitter with collector pin.2 of 2SA1943. Now connect the center pin.2 collector of 2SC2383 with the center joint (junction) of the two diodes 1N4148.

Connect 100k resistors one end to the center joint (junction) of 1N4148 and the other to the base pin.3 of 2SC2383 transistor. Take 1k resister and solder its one end with the base pin.3 of 2SC2383 transistor.

Now its time to connect the power supply and speaker connections. Solder the red wire +12 positive to the collector pin.2 of 2SC5200 and the black wire negative to the collector pin.2 of 2SA1943. Solder the remaining negative pin of 220uf capacitor to center pin.2 of volume controller. And connect pin.3 of volume controller to ground i.e. collector pin.2 of 2SA1943 where negative power supply black wire was soldered.

Take one 4700uf capacitor and attach its positive side to emitter pin.3 of 2SA1943. These two emitters of both transistors were joined together earlier. Now attach speaker’s positive to 4700uf capacitor’s negative and speaker’s negative to the ground i.e. collector pin.2 of 2SA1943.

  1. Sir im a beginners. the 680r resistor is 1watt, how about the rest of the resistor? Thanks. Have a nicetday

  2. Ciao. Ho realizzato due amplificatori (channel dx, channel sx). I due amplificatori, sono alimentati da un solo alimentatore da 1,5 A. Si sentono bene ma la potenza è debole. E’ perché 1,5 A per entrambi gli amplificatori sono pochi? Inoltre, il C5200 scalda un po’. E’ normale?
    Ciao e grazie

      1. What if I double the transistors, two C5200 inparallel and two A1943 in parallel… will it be more powerful than when its single?
