Telephone Amplifier

Here is the very simple, inexpensive and useful project telephone amplifier using very common power amplifier LM386 and some more components. It is used to produce loud sound in order to talk in group.

Working of the circuit telephone amplifier

The output telephone signal is more powerful then the signal fed to base of the transistor T1. The output signal from transistor T1 is fed to pin no 3 of power amplifier LM386 which amplify up to necessity level and output is obtained from pin no 5 is fed to speaker through capacitor C9. The VCC is given to IC1 through pin 6. The telephone signal is fed in to circuit through two ways.

  1. Direct supply telephone signal from telephone line to the point where coil L1 is connected as shown in figure 2.
  2. Or connect this peak up coil L1 and so adjusted near telephone set where excellent voice be able to single out.
