DIY 4558 IC Subwoofer Bass Circuit

In this project, I will build a 4558 IC-based bass booster circuit for low power audio amplifier. Audio without beats is impossible. To make an audio system with a bass feature ability, I introduced a bass booster circuit that gives a clear bass without any disturbance.

Bass sound is a very low-frequency sound that is generated by a low-pass filter circuit. It can block high frequency and produce low-frequency output. After going to build this circuit first we should know about the Low-Pass filter.

What is a Low Pass Filter?

4558 ic low pass filter circuit

A low-pass filter (LPF) circuit is a filter that passes signals with a frequency lower than a selected cut-off frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies higher than the cut-off frequency. The exact frequency response of the filter depends on the filter design. The filter is sometimes called a high-cut filter, or treble-cut filter in audio applications. A low-pass filter is the complement of a high-pass filter.

Note: If you want to plan to imply this 4558 ic circuit for bass and treble both, then this is not the right circuit. It only gives bass as its output.

  1. Ground connection is clearly visible on the bottom. This is an op-amp. So you need two 12v supplies in series where positive terminal need to connect to pin 8, then joint connection of both power supply needs to connect in ground and the rest of the ground terminal needs to connect to the ground of the op-amp.
