Little sparks nevermore! With this optimized driver you have fatty and yellow arcs!
With this driver you will not have many heating issues, but need a heatsink for the MOSFET, almost all reverse flyback outbreaks are filtered by C4, capacitors C5 and C6. Almost all reverse flyback outbreaks are filtered by C4, capacitors C5 and C6. This is the basic circuit, with it, replacing the MOSFET IRFZ48N by a IRFP260N you can play more than 36VDC quietly...

Step 1: Necessary Components
1x 670 Ohms resistor;
1x 2,1K Ohms resistor;
1x 10nF capacitor (polyester or ceramic);
1x 10 Ohms resistor
2x 100nF capacitor (polyester)
1x 555 Timer IC
1x IRFZ48N MOSFET
1x 2u2 x 400V Capacitor (polyester)
2x 470nF x 275V Capacitor (MKP or "X2" signature, polyester)
1x MUR1560 Diode
1x Heatsink for MOSFET
Optional: Fan for circuit (if you build into a "closed" box)
Step 2: The Circuit
This is the schematics and some components... Flyback Transformer, 555 Timer, Capacitors and the MOSFET...
Remembering: You can use IRFP260N or better for more power... I suggest to use in minimum 5A transformer... Transformers is best than switching power supplys for this circuit! You can play audio in arcs adding a audio jack and replacing 100nF capacitor for a 470nF capacitor in pin 5... Like the picture.
Step 3: Finishing...
This circuit is very efficient and work in >19VDC and 3A... Here, I show to you a vídeo of working project...
Another video in my facebook of a test with IRFP250N MOSFET and 70VDC input... High Power Flyback + IRFP250N
You can change the frequency changing values of R1, R2 and C1, but if you up or down too much the values you can burn the MOSFET...
