Default jfet output for f4

g,day
i have some populated civiller f4 boards that just need the output devices to be complete

reading about the fw j2 and f2j has got me interested in this type of output for my f4, i think i can get the semisouth devices from this forum

my questions are

1, what type ,semisouth ?

2, can i use 1 pair per channel like the j2 instead of the f4,s 3 pair

3, any other mods ,resistor changes?

4, is it worth doing

they are to power veravox 7x @93db so i only need 10w or so

cheers

hi Zen mod

many thanks for your fast reply and honesty as usual

you have read my mind ,the j2 is what i really want to build and the above project is just an atempt to temporarely satisfy my bad urges

i also have some populated aleph j boards if these would be better to mod than the f4
cheers

make J and enjoy

there is thread started by 6L6 - Papa gave him few 2SJ109BL and SS during last BAF , along with enough info for quick sketch of Aleph J with SS outputs .

even if he (6L6) is silent lately in that thread , I think that's best temporary solution for you ....... 'till Papa give J2 secret in public .

in any case , I can't see any benefit of taking expensive and tricky route - making follower (like F4 - unity gain ) stage with Semisouths , comparing to complementary mosfet follower stage ......

biasing SS is trickier ( vs. plain mosfets , considering that we have just one polarity of SS) and their virtues aren't used in follower stage ........ at least not in that amount as in any stage with gain

also - there is nice thread - contemplating about marriage of "short" F4 - using just one output pair , mated with input xformer .
even if not real McKay , I resume that you'll have enough of M2

soryy - I didn't remember neither who started that thread , nor exact subject

now you have me thinking about the m2

i just did some checking and found that Generg has done this

he used electra print transformers

seems quite easy to do with the f4 i already have ,he mentions 1.5 as a transformer ratio

can you advise a suitable transformer

many thanks

yup - I'm aware of Generg's work/fun ;

we had some little collaboration regarding some things (under the bush ) ...... in fact , we started with Lundahls (LL1674 , with which I measured up to 90Vpp broadband , unclipped ) , but Generg later decided that some ( I'm not remembering which ones ) cheaper solutions are even better for his ears .

he's da man whom you can bug for info regarding input autoformer .

considering that you don't even need full blast wattage , Poor Man's M2 will serve you equally well as genuine M2 .

it's charming little devil amp
