    That image is a proper schematic done from your hand drawn schematic. I have made a similar build but used extra filtering capacitors between +VCC and ground because I powered mine from a wall supply and was getting noise. If you wanted to power it with a wall adapter, you only need to add 100uF and a 100nF caps in parallel between +VCC and GND to filter noise. Here is the schematic I used:

    to be clear this is mono correct? not stereo. 3 speakers are shown suggesting its a 2.1 system with left and right channels with bass. Unless somehow a lm386 is capable of this i am co fused at the use of 3 speakers. If it is capable please explain.
