UPDATED:.22:15 22 October 2013

This is a standard circuit for this IC. The advantage it has over other amplifiers is that it works on a 12 volt supply. The sound quality is reasonable and will drive a 6 to 8 inch speaker comfortably.
Be sure to mount the IC on a suitably sized heatsink and use thermal grease when securing to the heatsink.

At maximum output the distortion is about 1% into a 4 ohm speaker.

For more information, refer to the TDA2005 datasheet.
