What can I make with this kit?
With up to 1 watt output per channel and 2 channels this amplifier kit (manufactures code 2141B-IP) is a great way to listen to your MP3 player. No need to spend time soldering, everything this kit comes with is PCB pre-built. An on/off switch, power LED and volume control are built into the kit. Connects straight into your 30 pin iPod/iPhone so you can listen to your music. This kit requires a DC 2-15V power supply. A single 9V (PP3) battery (not included) or a DC 12V power supply (not included) are recommended.
What is included in this kit?
No need to solder most of the components, as the PCB is already pre-built. All you need to connect is the 30 pin iPod lead, speakers and power clip. The kit amplifies the voltage and current of the input signal with the amplifier integral chip (a TDA2822M chip) and the potentiometer (or variable resistor) works as a volume control. The signal is then transferred to the speakers which translate it into sound. Minimal soldering is required with this kit – you only need to solder the speakers, jack and battery clip.
How difficult is this to solder?
This is a great kit for those who are not comfortable soldering or want to demonstrate how a speaker works. The kit comes with two 8 ohm 66mm speakers and 30 pin iPod lead. You can build your own enclosure (not included) to protect the electronics and make your own audio system.
