8 Watt Audio Power Amplifier Schematic

Useful circuit for self-powered speakers, Radios, TV, can be used as car power amplifier

Here is the schematic for an 8 watt audio power amplifier. This amp can be used as a simple booster, the heart of a more complicated amplifier or used as a guitar amp. It is very small and portable unit and can be powered through 12V battery. I built the circuit on a Vero Board and had to add extra inductors, capacitors and resistors to prevent oscillation.
