TA7222AP Audio Amplifier Circuit Diagram

The schematic of a 5.8 watt audio amplifier circuit using ta7222ap ic is shown below.

TA7222AP Audio Amplifier Circuit Explanation

The main component of this circuit is a TA7222AP amplifier (IC1), which has ten-pin terminals.

Vcc terminal 1 connects to the +12V power supply and GND terminals (7, 8) to the ground for powering the amplifier circuit. Here, terminal 7 is the input stage, and terminal 8 is the output stage. Ripple terminal 2, muting control terminal 3, and gain adjust terminal 6 are not required in the circuit. Input terminal 4 connects to an external audio signal input terminal through R1, C2, and VR1. Here, VR1 controls the audio input signal. Feedback terminal 5 connects to the ground through R2 and C3. C5 is connected between output terminal 9 and boot-strap terminal 10. Terminal 9 connects to the ground through C6 and also connects with a 4 Ohm speaker (LS1) through C4.

This 5.8 Watt audio amplifier circuit can be assembled on a Vero board. You must be used a suitable Aluminium Heat Sink with the amplifier IC TA7222AP.

Applications of TA7222AP Audio Amplifier Circuit

  • Used in car stereos, car radios, and Hi-Fi audio setups.
  • Used as an integral part of home theatre setups.
  • Used as High-power megaphones and acoustic systems.
