this old cabinet is in great shape and will look fine in someones guitar room.
it has a 12" baffle size and measures 20" wide x 40" tall
it is not as cut and dry as we would like the calculations to be...there will exponential losses at each stage which i may make up for with a quadrupler in place of a tripler and the load of the entire amp will pull down the end voltage tooSo this voltage tripler I assume gets you from 120V @ 1A to 360V @ 330mA ?
Also, that looks like it is going to be fun!
Sounds feasible to me.it is not as cut and dry as we would like the calculations to be...there will exponential losses at each stage which i may make up for with a quadrupler in place of a tripler and the load of the entire amp will pull down the end voltage too
...i may draw 120mA(push pull el84 plus 2 x 12_X7) in the circuit and the 1A tranny will handle this: in theory
my endgame is 300v fully operating
it is a simple and cheap trial in any event....i will revert to a design specific tranny if this madness does not provide fruit
thanks...That is one cool looking cabinet in amazing condition! Someone's gonna get lucky.
if i am way out to lunch in my hillbilly thinking it wont succeed and someone here will help adjust "the plan": always with a thank you from me and others who are learning("what is and what should never be"...r. plant)Sounds feasible to me.
I was mostly just trying to see if my thinking was right. Voltage multiplication at the loss of amperage.
I support your madness Alan because I too am silly enough to manufacture a solution for a problem that does not exist and I truly appreciate your style and commitment.
with your wife's permission😊Is this amp going to be offered for sale here?
I can imagine that cabinet in my home.....
with your wife's permission😊
and yes , each of my projects goes to a new home for the cost of parts
you do some building and I will be in need of a neck or two for my purple heart slabs...trades are always pleasantWell, you have my attention, LOL.
Well, I'm happy to have that discussion when the time comes. In the meantime, I'll enjoy seeing this amp take shape.you do some building and I will be in need of a neck or two for my purple heart slabs...trades are always pleasant
