      Good evening.

      I recently purchased a kit using 2n3055 on the output, fter assembling everything it look very similar to the autona 125 amplifier. I was wondering if you have a picture of the autona and maybe a circuit diagram. this kit did not come with a circuit diagram only the pcb layout. I am almost certain it is a copy of the autona.

      I found that if you increase the output cap to 4700uF the amp sounds much better and you can easaly drive 4 ohm loads.

      I bought the kit to play with and built into a 10″ cabinet to have some small speakers that i can just pop in the boot. I do have 2 mosfet amps of 1Kw that i use on my 18″ base bins and 15″ tops.

      I would realy appreciate i if you can send me the circuit of the autona.

      kind regards

        Hi Willie

        The Autona modules were very popular in the 70’s and 80’s, ran on an upto 80V DC supply. There was also a 50W version which was similar, only using 2 x 2N3055s. I drew out the schematic years back and will see if I can find it. These modules were great for disco in the good old days 🙂 but really the quality is bad compared to modern units without coupling capacitors. The worst part is the switch-on thump, which I am sure caused more damage to speakers and the 2N3055s than anything else. I always used Toshiba devices, I found them to be more reliable (otherwise RCA). To get rid of switch-on thump use a 5W 100 ohm resistor across relay contacts attached to timer. (in series with load).
        I’ll see if I can get the circuit and attach it to the OPiC Technical Library. Have fun!

        hi there conrad my e mial is,

        I know how tro set the bias so when you send me a mail i will explain.
