    The preamp side should be fairly easy to do........

    What are the specs for the power amp ?

    Input sensitivity for full power for a start would help....

    Is there any special equalization needed for the preamp or does it neeed a flat response from say 20hz to 20khz....

    What signal source are you feeding into the preamp, this along with the power amp sensitivity will set the over all gain of the preamp section......

    SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE AMPLIFIER.

    PLEASE I WOULD LIKE AN AMPLIFIER WITH BASE AND TREBLE. RIGHT NOW, I'M NOT REALLY TECHNICALY GOOD IN THE RANGE SPECIFICATIONS. BUT MOST IMPORTANT THING IT SHOULD HAVE GOOD RESPOUNSE AND NOT FLAT IN TONE. BUT PLEASE MOST IMPORTANT, IT SHOULD HAVE A POT VOLUME FOR A VERY HIGH GAIN OF ANY RANGE. THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN....!!!! :D :D

    You are still not specific with the details............

    A tone control circuit is fairly easy to assemble using an op amp, but again I stress the need for more info.........no one can help if you dont help us!

    Hi Tim,

    I was looking for 'datasheet 4558' when Yahoo steered me to here, and
    now I'm a member 1 minute old!

    I'm currently fixing a channel of a mic/line mixer which uses the
    opamp 4558. This is a dual opamp IC, an improved 741 type opamp.
    This IC has been used in guitar and bass amps.

    Your power amp, PA, does it use the 4558 as an integral part of the
    PA circuit, or does it comes before the PA itself? You see, some designs
    do use an IC opamp as 1st stage of the PA. If your 4558 has a capacitor
    connecting to the PA then it's not the 1st stage of your PA and this is
    much easier to debug.

    Efren

    Thanks for the datasheet.
    I just done fixing 5 channels of a mic mixer which uses the 4558 and
    they all had the same bug: the 2nd opamp is used as comparator in
    the overdrive/clip circuit and the opamp just couldn't take it. What's
    more the 4558 is more expensive here than the 5532. So I tried the
    5532 as replacement. It worked! Not only I fixed the bug but the
    sound is better!

    The MC1458 is very old and had poor performance. It can be replaced by a newer IC that has the same pins but has much better performance. I would use a TL072.

    You answered somebody who disappeared more than 5 years ago.
