Speech Amplifier Box

Speech Amplifier Box

This circuit is intended to be placed in the same box containing the loudspeaker, forming a compact microphone amplifier primarily intended for speech reinforcement. A device of this kind is particularly suited to teachers, lecturers, tourists’ guides, hostesses and anyone speaking in crowded, noisy environment.
The circuit’s heart is formed by the TDA7052 Audio power amplifier IC, delivering a maximum output of 1.2W @ 6V supply. An external microphone must be plugged into J1, its signal being amplified by Q1 and fed to IC1. R1 acts as a volume control and C3 tailors the upper audio frequency band, mainly to reduce the microphone possibility of picking-up the loudspeaker output, causing a very undesirable and loud “howl”, i.e. the well known Larsen effect.
Therefore, C3 value can be varied in the 4n7 – 22nF range to ensure the best compromise from speech tone quality and minimum Larsen effect occurrence. For the same reason, the use of an uni-directional (cardioid) dynamic or electret microphone is warmly recommended.
Most of these microphone types are usually fitted out with a slider switch: this is an useful feature that can be used to momentarily mute the microphone. Some microphone types use a separate jack for connection to the muting circuit, some others use a stereo jack or different plug types. In any case, the connection of this switch to the circuit is shown as SW1 in the diagram.
