Electret Condenser Microphone Amplifier Circuit

This is Another a circuit diagram of homemade MIC Speaker Amplifier using LM386. This is small and powerful for a low power supply. This is the Best and interesting circuit for the beginner. In this circuit, a transistor is used as a preamplifier which makes input signal noiseless and gives input at ic at high gain. 

In this circuit, the condenser mic becomes more sensitive that is used to catch the voice signals which I speak. This is Low power Amplifier that can be used at any small and medium-size hall, Class Room, Home, office with the 8-ohm speaker.

The power supply required for this amplifier is minimum 4v and maximum 6v for the best output result. Use 20k or 10k volume control potentiometer for controlling the voice volume control. Speaker must be connected with an electrolyte capacitor that can be of 100uf-470 uf 25v. Connect a 47nf capacitor between the negative supply and pin 5 with a 10-ohm resistor in series. This is very necessary for noise cancellation. A capacitor between positive and negative supply is connected to 100uf with the parallel of the 100nf capacitor. The output is boosted and produces powerful sound.

For high sensitivity, Insert condenser microphone in any plastic or metal small box or any cabinet with front open for more sound capture. External Body is used as a sound catching antenna which gives more signal to the mic by detecting the vibrations.

  1. Will this also work with 5vdc? I want to add this to another project already powered by 5vdc and really don’t want another power supply for the project.
