    I'm unclear by the way you worded this I think. I'll say it like this. In a series arrangement the resistors share the current relative to the voltage across their resistance. So it's like I said...

    Well since Helmy was good enough to illuminate the wattage issue (not sure why I got 200W stuck in my head) you're going to need a higher rating on the resistance. 220 ohms will draw about 16W and...

    I'm trying to logic this out and coming up short. I think the idea must be to prevent loading when a speaker is in use. But this fails to provide equal protection should a speaker system fail. Like...

    I think Helmholtz sort of covered this responding to me earlier. The screens, both ideally and in their circuits, don't see the same variation in current that the plates do. So the concession I was...

    My only consideration might be the tendency for overdissipation to be balanced with periods of much lower dissipation WRT clipping circuits. Which tubes handle rather gracefully. We see this a lot in...

    Sooooo... What could be wrong with experimenting with something like a neo cap on an iron core!?! There's probably more than one way to skin any cat. The subtleties would probably make...

    Oh I can't get one now. Any more than I can jump to the moon. This is the slim season for painting and I'm about as broke as I get. I'm 51yo and I keep wondering when my life is going to settle into...

    FWIW I built a little 2x6v6 amp from the guts of a VOM phonograph. It sounded remarkably better than you might expect from the 300Vp and that tiny OT. It actually had a great low end and literally...

    First, please post a schematic of the circuit you propose.

    And B) I like a little more low end depth in my reverb. It sounds good. But it takes A LOT of fussing to make it work without acoustic...

    That's lame. Why would they sell you the wrong ones? Surely whomever is selling these knows that there's more than one option and one is discontinued? Easier to get paid if you don't mention it I...

    What you have to do is set up a test. First tack a capacitor to the ungrounded end of C4. Just one end of the cap. You'll be testing at the unconnected end. This cap can be any standard coupling cap...

    I'll go look at the "more power" post and see if I have anything to add. The best answer will probably already be there. More efficient speakers.

    I'm confused. There was no 1k resistor that I changed. The 1k resistor to the screen supply remains as it was (though I might be inclined to up it's value to 2.2k.?.). I ADDED the 150 ohm resistor...

    Most often the failure mode in power supply electrolytics is such that tacking a good cap across a bad cap can restore performance and this actually has been discussed here a lot. Though you're not...
