2019-03-05 The Low Frequency Audio Uses A Lot Of Power

from FB group Vintage Transistor Radios 2019 Mar 5 The ear is not as sensitive to low ‘bass’ frequencies so they use a lot of power. If the speaker is large enough to reproduce them, they will use quite a bit of power. With pocket radios, the audio amplifiers are limited in low frequency response

2019-01-09 Bootstrap Principle In Audio Amps

FB group Building transistor radios 2018-01-09 Willie Barnett That is one deficiency of your circuit: the output transistors do not have the ‘bootstrapped’ bias resistor. I’ll explain why it’s needed. In your circuit, the signal turns the driver transistor as close to off as possible. The current through the base bias resistor causes the top

2018-08-24 2N3904 & 2N3906 for Output Transistors

From FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018-08-24 – The discussion was about the OTL complementary symmetry audio amplifier that Mr. Barnett has posted several times to the group, which uses a 2N3904 and 2N3906. Willie Barnett Let’s talk about current. Suppose your amp has a 9V supply. When the output transistor is turned fully on,
