    MOBILE CAR STEREO PLAYER  
    T.K. HAREENDRAN

    Using a mobile phone while driving is dangerous. It is also against the law. However, you can use your mobile phone as a powerful music player with the help of a stereo power amplifier. This does away with the need of a sophisticated in-dash car music system.

    Most mobile phones have a music player that offers a number of features including preset/manual sound equalisers. They have standard 3.5mm stereo sockets that allow music to be played through standard stereo headphones/sound amplifiers. Nokia 2700 classic is an example.

    A car audio amplifier with 3.5mm socket can be designed and simply connected to the mobile phone output via a shielded cable with suitable connectors/jacks (readymade 3.5mm male-to-male connector cable is a good alternative).

    Fig. 1 shows the circuit of car stereo player. It is built around popular single-chip audio power amplifier TDA1554Q (IC1). The TDA1554Q is an integrated class-B power amplifier in a 17-lead single-in-line (SIL) plastic power package.



    Fig. 1: Circuit of mobile car stereo player

    IC TDA1554Q contains four 11W identical amplifiers with differential input stages (two inverting and two non-inverting) and can be used for single-ended or bridge applications. The gain of each amplifier is fixed at 20 dB. Here it is configured as two 22W stereo bridge amplifiers.

    The amplifier is powered from the 12V car battery through RCA socket J2. Diode D1 protects against wrong-polarity connection. LED1 indicates the power status.

    Connect stereo sound signal from the 3.5mm headset socket of the mobile phone to audio input socket J1. When you play the music from your mobile, IC1 amplifies the input. The output of IC1 is fed to speakers LS1 and LS2 fitted at a suitable place in your car. Electrolytic capacitor C5 connected between pin 4 of IC1 and GND improves the supply-voltage ripple rejection. Components R2 and C4 connected at mute/standby pin (pin 14) of IC1 eliminate the switch on/off plop.

    The circuit is quite compact. A good-quality heat-sink assembly is crucial for IC1. Fig. 2 shows the stereo socket and stereo jack.

    Assemble the circuit on a general-purpose PCB and enclose in a suitable cabinet. Small dimensions of the power amplifier make it suitable for being enclosed in a plastic (ABS) case with vent holes. Signal input socket, speaker output terminals, on/off switch, indicator, fuse holder and power supply socket are best located on the front panel of the enclosure as shown in Fig. 3.

    it will not work because the input capacitor polarity is reverse.

    Guys I am looking for the IC and did not find any suppliers or shops where I can purchase it in Mumbai. Can someone provide me the leads and what is the cost. I came to know that it is out of the market now and is outdated.

    Sir what modifications do i need to do in this circuit diagram if my speakers are of 2ohm and 100Watt rating ......plz rply

    Efy Admin   793 days ago

    This TDA1554Q is rated for 4-ohms, 2x22W. If you hook it to a 2-ohms speaker, your audio system may get damage within short time. One way to use 2-ohm speaker is to replace the TDA1554Q with TDA8560Q IC. You have to check the datasheet of TDA8560Q for proper connection.

    Firstly great work. This circuit is not working. When i apply 12V from DC battery the circuit is drawing more power and when i check the voltage across battery in circuit it shows only 3V. So where is the fault ?
