Product description:

The pre-built version of the amplifier kit allows you to focus more on product design. The stereo amplifier kit is supplied with all the resistors, volume control, capacitors, power switch & IC holder fitted. Students just need to finish it by connecting the jack lead, speakers & power clip to the board.

Available with an iPod connecting lead (Please note this is not the Lightning connector used on the some Apple devices such as the iPhone 5. Adapters are available) or a 3.5mm jack lead.

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 batteries connected to the PP3 clip or a DC power module can be plugged in when 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 TDA2822M audio amplifier IC which can output 1W per channel.

PCB dimensions: 62mm x 50mm.

It has a PP3 battery clip and can run off any voltage from 2 to 15 volts.

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.

how big is the speaker


Posted by Milo, Friday, 15 April 2016 on product Deluxe Stereo Amplifier Pre-built


I was wondering if you had a picture of this kit set up in a product because I'm a bit confused about how the volume, switch and light will look so cramp together.

Hi there, When soldering wires to the volume control (potentiometer) can you solder the wires in the holes rather than attaching to the legs? Just checking to see if this affects performance. Also, I attached two 65mm speakers and used a 9v battery and the sound was awful - any ideas?


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Friday, 1 April 2016

    You can solder direct on to the holes on the potentiometer and you won’t have any performance issues. There could be a couple of reason why the sound it’s very good using the speakers. If it is the speakers we supplied with the kit it could be a dry joint or loose connection on the speakers or the input cable. If it is different speakers then these need to be 8ohm speakers. There could also be a dry joint on R2.

Hi, like a few people I am making this for a GCSE project and was wondering what is the distance between the volume control nob and the switch? As I want to add a nob cover and am unsure what my limits are in terms of size. Many thanks!


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Wednesday, 27 January 2016

    The distance between the edge of the switch and edge of the potentiometer is approximately 3mm, however the slider on the switch is located around 4mm from the top of the PCB, and the spindle on the potentiometer is 12.5mm above the top of the PCB.
