no problems merlin , you can't bias it with the light bulb in series . thats just for starting up so that if you have a problem you don't let out too much smoke

turn off your amp , disconnect the lightbulb , RETURN !!!!your pots to ZERO !!! before connecting your amp direct to mains .

if you don't have zenmod's guide to biasing up go find it before proceeding . i believe he posted it in 6L6's original build thread .

and i repeat RETURN YOUR POTS TO ZERO !!!!

cheers Woody

Ok, I reviewed the first page of this thread. I'll have to print out a hard copy for reference.

Anyways, what does mosfet Iq refer to? Isn't that the voltage across R11 or R12?

DC offset it the voltage at the speaker outputs.

And max voltage is voltage between v+ & v-.

That right?

oh cool , just realized 6L6 saved that in diff format . was more interesting in the original zm post though :P

Iq refers to current "I" I=v/r . in this case the known is r .47 ohms so voltage is what you're monitoring over r11 &12 to arrive at that current .

and yes dc offset is the voltage at the speaker outputs .

not sure what max voltage you're reffering to .

From Zen Mods biasing procedure:
"place one voltmeter across PSU caps ( best between + and - of PSU) to observe max voltage of PSU"

My ASSUMPTION is that one is curious to see how stiff the PS is.
