Would you clarify your request? Do you want material to aid in understanding such amplifiers so you can independently design one, or do you simply want a schematic?

Here's a Wikipedia article on various classes of amplifiers:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_amplifier

Attached is a schematic of a simple class AB audio amplifier with a volume control.

Did you read the Wikipedia article?

Did you change components, or miss a connection?

As you can see, it works in the simulation I set up.

Note that the junction of D1 and D2 is NOT connected to the junction of the emitters of Q4 and Q5.


Post a screen shot of what you have so far.

While you have the schematic on the screen, hit Ctrl+PrtScr
Then start Paint (in the Accessories folder) and paste the image by pressing Ctrl+V.
Save it as a type .png or .jpg, then attach it to a reply in Advanced mode.
