600 Ω drain resistor? , there is no 600 Ω resistor only 10 Ω with a 100 Ω pot

The 4 ma is why you had to increase the drain resistance. I think the Idss was specified to be 10 ma. Problem, I don't know? Have a listen and see what you think.

The 600 ohm was the combined total drain resistance, but that doesn't matter now that you have put in the new pot.

Default Measurements

Hi there, i was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction regaring some measurements on the front end. I have a dip/overshoot on the negative curve that i would like to understand.

Voltage on the resistors are:
Left
R3/R4 = 64.66 - 64.69mV
R10 = 1.042 V
R11 = 1.037 V

Right
R3/R4 = 65.08 - 65.10mV
R10 = 1.038
R11 = 1.036

Here are som waveforms from the scope, the blue ones are for left channel and red for right. The input is 2Vp-p @ 5k, 50k and 100kHz.
Measured across R13.

2Vpp_100Khz_Left.gif2Vpp_100Khz_Right.gif

Hi
Would some one help me out here I don't know where to connect the connection from the ba 3 to the bias board ,Like what connects to D+ or D- or S
Thanks

according to new BA3 frontend schematic, +D is signal out(to power amp)
I reckon -D would be signal ground

S ...? I only find that on old BA1 frontend, so I guess it goes nowhere now with new BA1/BA3 ?

Output of One side of the BA-3 frontend to D (GS) and ground G of One bias board, the same with the other output of the BA-3 Frontend and the other bias board.
D+ and D- are Only for the bias and S is the feedback sensing the bias current.

Unfortunately Nelson's PDF and the bias and output board nomenclature are a bit different

I always had to think twice when connecting these parts and often.......did it the wrong way.
In this case D+and D- refer to the drains of the upper and lower outputstage and their bias. D (GS) !GS means gainstage, is the real input and the ground point nearby is for he shielded cable.
