Bksabath - You are building an F5, right? That's what this thread is about!

I'm still curious if you are going to use the biscuit tin as a transformer cover...

Okey dokey
Fell so much beter tanks

Woody

Ken is right about the limits and 40W is the going figure.

But is also trou that Papa said 1 They sound better at 2 amps and also They sound beter at higher voltagge

So the only way to get both is to improve the heat exchange process

Big heat sinks but slow in setling or Goop and mica versus Kerafol
Also Kerafol work beter with higher pressure so how much torque could you put on a screw before you strip the tread?

Bit like F5 racing port flow by hand wok best

One more question did you Ken / 6L6 mannage to get a temperature on the CL60

Biscuit tin is a definite possibility it does work.

I am not shure if I will have to as on my case the PSU is practicaly in a separate enclosure so I am more on the no need for it and cooler trafo at the moment.

In your case IMO is worth a try

Using the extremely accurate pseudo-pscientific method of touching them and guessing, I would say that mine are in the neighborhood of 120-130F. (49-55C)

Very warm/hot to the touch, but not going to burn you, and able to touch for 5-10sec.

Tanks for temperature.
eventualy I will have to pull 2 maye 3 times the current as I got 4 homs speakers so mine will be much worst.

Question
your therminal block is rated at 80 C ?

May get britle 6 months down the line.
