Is it worth using active tone controls or is it easier to just use passive tone controls from fender or marshall?

What are the pros/cons of each?

I tried connecting the - of one battery and the + of another to ground and using the other terminals as a +/- supply like in the picture but it seems to be shorting the chip?? The speaker is popping and the chip is heating up

i assumed a battery acted like a V+/V- supply. what would i have to do to make it that way?

Hi! i'm new to the site and the world of building amplifier.
I successfully prototyped a J-FET pre-amplifier for my guitar amp I plan to use as my main rig.
for the power amp i'm trying to build a TDA2050 based circuit. i'm using the circuit from the datasheet and i'm using all the correct components, except when i power it i get no sound?

here's my theories for problems so far:
i have it set up on a breadboard just so i can get sound to see if the circuit works

i'm powering it with SLA batteries (temporarily) and the power supply I will build last, i'm only giving it 12v (I tried 24v with two in series to no avail) mostly because I know these are probably knock off chips from china and i'm afraid to run them at max voltage.

should I be using a different circuit? I only need a single channel and bare minimum for this project and i'm just trying to get sound from the amp at this point.

I've tried output from the pre-amp (also built a bit sketchy) and output music from my phone, both inputs are giving no output.

please let me know if i'm posting in the wrong place or you need more information. thanks!
