Budget 5.1 Channel Home Theater Suggestions Please

Hi Guys,

Please share your precious experience with smaller 5.1 amps

My Plans to use the below components
Lumin Bridged TDA2030 Amp - 20watts@8ohm per channel (approx 35W @ 4ohm) (cost around Rs 800)
Transformer 18-0-18 @6amp, 12-0-12 @1amp
5.1 Remote Kit from Imranics or DigitKit.

Speakers already I have from Yamaha (5 channels 40w@4ohm) and a passive sub from Sony (60W@4ohm).

Need your valuable suggestions and alternatives.



  • HI Rajeev
    If you imranics board I have a few with me and can sell you.

    These boards are based on pt2323 and pt2322 combinations. These are very good when you input stereo.
    These works on PLII philosophy. I had one built earlier with 2030 Amps but I was using some imported drives which were QC rejected. They were hardly 20Watts drives and was happy with them.

    The remote kits has LOW output when connected to a 5.1 channel input. Imranics boards comes with OP amps and presets inside to adjust gain

  • Hi Rajeev,

    First select Drivers based on output you are looking for.
    thn go for Amp kit. based on your Amp kit you will require Transformer and PSU.
    Go step by step or you will end up with something you dont want.

  • HI
    The 2030 when put on bridged mode with a dainty 8 inch silver cones will the do the job for you. Its quite cheap and you can build them on a dotted pcb with handfull of components.
