jacco vermeulen. Eight poles for a maximum of eight individual wires.
  • a + Vcc rail
  • a -Vcc rail
  • a common power rail to go with the above 2
  • two current source [load] rails
  • Three conductors TBD
Take a look at the link of the first post; picture of the amp on the side of the handles.
  • The bottom box shows a 3 conductor AC power male socket.The Xs literature talked about bigger and quieter transformers and "a bank of soft recovery diodes".
  • Anothe cable connects this box to the one atop it.
  • On the left side just under the handle of the top box may be an independent earth ground for this chassis.
  • Four speaker outputs; 2 black and two red. Speculation about the topology of the output stage{s} is welcome.
  • Maybe two RCA-style connectors under the right handle.
  • A multi-hole socket at the ~top center
  • And the Speakon.
NB. Zen Mod got to it first. Thanks ZM.

Signal Ground.

My problem is with the 2 wires SE.
They go into High Ganja impedance (you know : MOSFET gates. Regardless of a bank of 3W Panasonic resistors in parallel, to side-rail the output)

Those +/- rail conductors carry large bags of current weeds, just think how high the charging peaks to the penthouse cans could reach.

And all those run side-by-side over a 5ft length, inside 0.8" diameter cable.
That's some fancy cable, please name me one that'll do the trick.

(btw, the Speakon only comes in 2, 4, and 8-pole. Using an 8-pole not necessarily means 8 conductors)

you're too old for ...... and too young to die ......... so why you should be so puzzled with welder ?

these 8 contacts can be shared for 4 conductors , and these you have plenty of types , even skinned as preputium graded snake

so , what's the fuss - PL guys already revealed where the Troops are , how many dust biters and how many horsemans

what probably will stay undisclosed is what's on now nice and small Greenfield , contrary to Stadium sized proto specimen

so - even if one is Schwarzie enough to put up for two TIG cases (with or without oxygene bottles ) , there is still question mark about wire feeding brain

you remember that I told ya that Pa deliberately didn't allowed me near his Ark ?

so - fact is simple - Pa found last year ( in Ark, where else ) big stash of various valued glue-on thingies , so now he must find a way to use them all

Thank you jacco vermeulen for the close-up picture of the signal ground and negative ground labels. Unfortunately, I am disconnected from your question re F5. Dunno the answer.

Most important is that the Xs amp system works safely [first] and performs beautifully. I wonder if there is an answer in a twisted pair of conductors carrying in and out of phase large or small currents to address your earlier questions.

I do not have a clear mental of the "circuit" above. A reference to a published schematic by Mr. Pass will help.

Maybe because my flavor ranges from operation mode to cable code, from manufacturing to logistics, and from cost calculation to modular/standardising percentages.
Not just how to actively/passively force the steering wheel to the right on a tilting road (or electronically make front wheels communicate).

Likely why Pa(jammy) tale-chasing hasn't turned yawning yet, 28 years coming august.
(audio is also a better stimulant than sniffing coke during wuthering lows, saves plenty mulla on couch bills)
