Product description:

This deluxe amplifier kit can be used with any personal stereo equipment, including MP3 players. The kit has a volume control & power LED. It can be powered by a battery connected to the PP3 clip or a DC power module can be plugged in, in which case the batteries automatically disconnect and the power supply is used. The kit can be powered off a 2V to 15V supply, though the volume is better with a higher supply. It uses a NJM2073D audio amplifier IC which can output 1W per channel.

It works nicely off a 9V battery (not supplied) or if you want to run it of the mains why not try our 12V wall power unit.

This kit requires soldering.

Features:

  • 1W per channel stereo amplifier.
  • Choice of iPod or 3mm jack cable.

    Hi Rachel, It isn’t something we have tried ourselves, and after having a quick look into it mono amplifiers seem the better choice for a subwoofer. It is advised to fully research subwoofers before trying to use/install one.

    Hi Josh, We don’t currently sell a Bluetooth add on module, off-the-shelf modules do exist though and should come with instructions for connecting to an amplifier. However we do stock a Bluetooth amplifier which would be a better option, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/c2160-bluetooth-stereo-amplifier-kit.html

    Hi Luke, Yes this would be fine, the kit can handle a supply voltage of 12V. The difference in current would just mean that the circuit if needed could draw up to 1A, as this circuit can run off 500mA it wouldn’t even get close to the 1A draw you could supply.

    Hi Jack, The kit works on when the jack socket for the mains power supply is plugged in it disconnects the terminal for the battery clip lead. As such you shouldn’t need to solder the battery clip lead in if you are only using the main power supply. With regards to the input I believe you are referring to a jack socket so that an input lead could be plugged into the amplifier, an example of this can be seen here, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/blog/how-to-make-a-practice-guitar-amplifier-with-a-volume-control. This would be fine to do, if you change the input lead for either a 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack socket that would be fine.

    Hi Tony, You could connect your headphone as an output as long as the impedance rating is 8ohms or higher. If you still wanted to have the speakers connected as well you would need some way to switch between a speaker output and a headphone output. This would require additional components off the PCB.

    Hi Maddie, Unfortunately none of our amplifier kits has the circuity built in to allow it to charge either a phone, IPod or MP3 player. Sorry.

    Hi Jacob,

    Yes you can listen to music on this by plugging it into an MP3 player or similar. It doesn't play music on it's own.

    You can connect one speaker to one of the outputs with no problem, the problem with this is you with lose signals that are sent to the other channel. You wouldn’t be able to connect one speaker to both output channels either as you could have a two different output signals which would either cancel each other out or damage the speaker/kit.

    The round indent shows the top of the IC, this is the same as the notch. As such this should be positioned so it is the same side as the notch on the IC holder and PCB.

    There could be a couple of reasons for this, one of these reasons could be that R2 has a dry joint. It would also be worth checking that the wire connection one both the speakers are soldered and not just wrapped round. If you have any further issue then send a photo of the top and bottom of the circuit board to support@kitronik.co.uk

    Hi, USB tends to be 5V. This kit works best at 12V, at lower voltages the sound may distort if you try to turn the volume up too far. Our product stock code 2158 is specially designed to run from 5V and has a built in micro-USB socket.

    Hi Jason, looking into this the cost for producing an amplifier kit with Bluetooth is likely to be quiet high as such we are still looking into if this would be a product that would be feasible, however we have no immediate plans to develop this further

    The maximum voltage that can be used with this kit is 15V, we recommend using it with our 12V 500mA UK Mains Wall Power Supply, product code 2260.

    I have just tested one of the jack leads and yes this is correct, the tip is linked to the red wire and the center is linked to the white wire.

    Although there isn’t any difference in sound quality between the two lead types the 3.5mm jack lead is more versatile. As for the speakers for the kit you have two options, you could buy the Visaton 5W speakers which are suitable for the deluxe stereo amp kit. Or you could go for the 3W class D stereo amp kit, which offers great sound quality at a power level in between the deluxe stereo amp kit and the high powered amp kit.

    You can’t plug two devices in at the same time, and if you have both leads connected to the board then the lead that isn’t connected may pick up background noise so it is not recommended to have both lead types connected.

    A: Hi, it is possible but you won't be able to get the maximum volume out of it. A USB port from a computer is at 5V, the kit works best from 12-15V. We sell a USB power lead which has a USB connector on one end and a red and black wire at the other. Wire the red to the positive pad on the PCB and the black to the negative and that should do it.
