Product Details

T-Amp Tripath TA2024 2x15W Audio Digital Amplifier Board

This board is designed around the Tripath TA-2024 integrated circuit. The TA2024 is a 15W/channel continuous average two-channel Class-T Digital Audio Power Amplifier IC using Tripath's proprietary Digital Power Processing™ technology. Class-T amplifiers offer both the audio fidelity of a Class-AB amplifier and the power efficiency of a Class-D amplifier.

Perfect for projects, this board features over-current and over-temperature protection circuits. It can be built into powered speakers or used as a standalone amplifier. The board's small size is even ideal for inclusion in OEM products or store displays.

Specifications: • Output power: 9W x 2 @ 4 ohms (0.04% THD+N), 11W x 2 @ 4 ohms (0.1% THD+N), 6W x 2 @ 8 ohms (0.1% THD+N), 15W x 2 @ 4 ohms (10% THD+N), 10W x 2 @ 8 ohm (THD+N) • IHF-IM: 0.18% @ 1W, 4 ohms • Efficiency: 88% @ 10W, 8 ohms • Dynamic range: 102 dB • Recommended power: 12 VDC, 2A • Dimensions: Board: 3.54" x 2.09" (90 x 53 mm); Mounting holes (center to center): 2.88" x 1.81".

T-Amp Tripath TA2024 2x15W Audio Digital Amplifier Board
T-Amp Tripath TA2024 2x15W Audio Digital Amplifier Board is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, especially since it runs on 12vI originally bought these to put in PCs, with the thought of adding bookshelf speakers. While I got side tracked and have only put them in one pc which i only got to test but not deploy in the garage it was destined for, I found one other great use for these. I bought a mechless car stereo which as I expected was almost empty inside (see pics). This was a terrible car stereo, it wasn't even able to go over the wind noise in the RV it was meant to go in. Added in the amp, turns on with the help of a 6 dollar relay (though I'm guessing I could probably run it off the ignition/accessory switch and it would still be fine) and it's much improved to say the least. It does pop when it turns on and off, and more weirdly, it pops between songs. Not unbearable but annoying.My next project, is probably to yank the one i have in the unused computer, and turn it into a cooler/chest stereo, to take on the river. I figure a car battery will be able to power one of these things for a few days easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little baordSounds good and is plenty loud for PC. There is a slight turn-on pop, but is not too bad. Mounted the board to an empty PCI card slot cover as a sort of amplifier card for a PC. Works well and allows me to use a custom external speaker setup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, but only once it has stabilized.The amp sounds great and is dead simple to set up. The only problem is that since this is a cheaper board, it has very severe pops when it starts up. You audiophiles out there might expect this, but it was a disappointing surprise to me. Apparently it needs some sort of delay relay in between the board and speakers to mute them for a few seconds until it has powered up. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything like that readily available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great ampThis thing's great, really love this thing. Mine sounds really fantastic on my system. Amazing too for an under $15 PC board.A little crisp breaking in, still sounded nice, fine after some wear in. Not thin more highs emphasized - again wasn't bad, just if seems that way, don't panic, is fine after a little break in time.So much easier than the days of upgrading input outputs and volume pot of the DTA-1 when they just had that for Tripath amps. I'll probably grab a few more of these just to have on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny perfectionI used this amplifier to create a small set of active speakers. The board works great, sounds great too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent valueThis is a modest-power amplifier board, loud enough for most applications, and definitely sounds good. It is easy to assemble and will fit in a small enclosure (4 x 6 extruded aluminum in this case, with an over-sized potentiometer, all the chassis jacks, etc, etc, and room to spare). I bought a few of these to have around as it is the sort of thing that could have numerous applications.One thing: there are some fairly severe turn-on transients with this PWM unit that last ~3 seconds. (PE was helpful in confirming it wasn't a fluke with the units I bought). You could add a delay circuit and probably a normally-closed relay (PE has the NE555 and a 12V relay). I did spend some time with the data sheet for the chip, and it looks like there may be other options, but in my case, to keep it simple, small, and as inexpensive as possible, I ultimately just wired the speaker outputs through a DP switch, so I am basically the delay and the relay: turn on the amp, wait a couple seconds until all is stable, and turn on the speakers: not too elegant, but it works.For testing, I hooked up to a small pair of full-range speakers - near-field, the image was shockingly good. I mention this only because it was sort of like having an out-of-body experience - I wasn't expecting too much from this modest-priced board, and I was pleasantly surprised.All in all, this is a basic amplifier board that would work very well with a small pair of desk-top speakers, as a no-fills amp for a shop or a small room, in a "job-site" box, etc, etc, and is easy enough to assemble that it could be a fun project for kids on a rainy afternoon.PS - Chris F. was the person who answered my question - thank you - that level of customer service is a rare thing these days - if I wasn't already a loyal, life-long PE customer, I'm sure I would be. It may seem like a small thing, but being unfamiliar with this sort of chip, and finding turn-on transients, I had a question that I couldn't resolve easily by looking at the data sheet for the chip. Chris actually took the time to pull a couple units off the shelves and assemble them to confirm what I was seeing. I greatly appreciated the confirmation, and given a choice, will always choose to deal with people who care about what they are doing. Thanks again.

How to power this amp with a battery?

I would like to power this amp using a rechargeable battery. Should I use Lithium or Lead-Acid? Also, how would I wire it so that I can also charge the battery without removing it from the speaker box?
Asked by: SimonCL
Either battery will work well @2+Amps draw. there is a cost difference though. Charging your battery at the low setting on your charger{a trickle charge} will be best unless you are in a hurry. I wire an on/off switch into the battery hot wire{or the signal hot wire} for a charge. Be sure it will strong enough though. I stress that the battery you select be rated a notch above the rated 2 amps--Batteries tend to loose their punch at some point in the discharge cycle.

Are these bridgeable to 30 watts? And if yes, how?

Asked by: mintos
No, each channel of the amp is already bridged.Note - I've seen this question several times regarding small amplifiers. Unless the amp has a built-in DC-DC converter, maximum output power is pretty much pre-defined by the power supply voltage and the load impedance. A 12v amp designed for 4 ohms, even bridged, simply cannot put out 30W per channel without gross distortion. There is simply not enough voltage to drive the current into the load. A perfect zero-loss amp could THEORETICALLY deliver 25W before clipping distortion sets in, but in practice it's more like 15 watts because of losses in the wiring, PCB traces, and the amplifier itself.If you need 30 watts try the 320-334, it's rated at 100W but will put 30-40W of very clean power into 4 or 8-ohms with a 28-30v supply.

Does it require Ferrite Cores and Output Capacitors?

Product 300-385 requires the use of 2 ferrite cores and 2 output capacitors. Does this amp have the same requirements?
Asked by: John Talbert
The purpose of the ferrite cores are to block high frequency signals that could or could not induce noise. The capacitor blocks DC voltage from going to your speaker. The capacitor is much more important. It looks as if this amplifier has coupling capacitors on its output stage.

How do I wire an ON/OFF switch?

Asked by: Newbie2024
You will have to wire a SPST switch in line with the positive input on the power source.
