For the circuit shown i am having some trouble wondering why my tested signal looks like this (i understand that it could be clipping) but when i measure my circuit in the simulation it is correct? What could be causing these issues. I have to make a signal play through a speaker and just dont get what the issue could be? The amps are 2 x lm6484 and 1 x lm386. The circuit works perfectly and plays the sound as it should (with the 50k resistor being the potentiometer) but i just dont get what coiuld cause this change to the signal?

Could it potentially be a faulty breadboard. Also on another note i have a problem that when a different recording is played, the gain of the amp isnt 20, why is this?

    \$\begingroup\$ The snapshot shows a (somewhat) square wave over 60kHz, if I interpret it correctly. What did you expect from an audio part operating at such high frequencies? \$\endgroup\$ – Vladimir Cravero May 28 '17 at 18:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ Also, the simluation shows the voltage at n007, but from the schematic it is not clear which node it is. Maybe it is C1/C4/U1_5? \$\endgroup\$ – Vladimir Cravero May 28 '17 at 18:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you actually using a 5V supply, lm386 is good for maybe 3vpp into 8 on a 5 v supply \$\endgroup\$ – sstobbe May 28 '17 at 20:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes using 5v power supply, and I get it's a square wave proved just after the amps output, I just don't get why I dont get the graph like the simulation \$\endgroup\$ – Student May 28 '17 at 23:10
