I have heard that no amplifier can give it’s full output as mentioned in datasheets so I wanted to know

Electronic circuits is a total new hoby for me and I found this site and it is a good start.for me.
I am for several weeks ordering the parts from the partlist and they are finally at home.
Now I did the final check befor starting solder the bridged amplifier.
I do not mean it critacal but I see some differences in the pictures from the amplifier relative to the PCB before soldering.
There is part missing namely: C5 47 nF Xicon Polystyrene and I am wondering when it is added? And when you order it by Mouser from the partlist it is an 4.7nF a diffent value. For me (I am not an electrician) it is very confusing. Mabey you can say something about this point before I solder. I wonder if it is possible to replace this capitator for a (M) KP capitator with the same value?

Thanks for sharing.

can I use the LM380 instead of TDA2003 in the above circuit?

Yes, you’re right, to adjust the volume you need to put a variable resistor before C1. If your’re building a stereo amp though, you want the volumes to be adjusted equally on both channels without having two separate potentiometers. For that you can use a “dual gang potentiometer” which is basically two potentiometers controlled by the same knob. Here’s an example of one:

I see your project very interesting.
I like this.
I have the questions for this project:
1. I added 2 variable resistors 10k before the capacitors C1 and C2 to adjust volume for the left channel and the right channel. Is that right?
2. If I right, How to use only one variable resistor for adjusting the volume on 2 channels?

Thanks,
Sy Do
