Default Re: Voltage at my speaker terminals?

Originally posted by bsmif
Just wired up my first gainclone (one of Peter's 3875 kits). For some reason the negative voltage is coming off the positive connections of the powersupply board and vice versa. It was hooked p this way briefly before I turned it off, tested the leads and switched them. (seemed easier than flipping the diodes or trying to figure out what I did wrong on the PSU. SO Now one channel works fine while the other has -27 volts at the speaker terminals. Also has -1.2V at the input. Any idea what I did wrong? What I am likely to have blown out by having the wrong voltage hooked up briefly?

That is the elegant "rows" design for rectifier, so start at V+ and arrange the diodes so that the "|" faces V+ for all of the diodes.
You can (should) test the rectifier board before connecting the amplfiers.
Here's a picture for reference of diode polarity:
(see attached photo)

Perhaps the next step is to double-check the transformer hookup.

Yes, I believe those diodes in that post are not correct.
