30Vx3,5A=105W/ch. Hmm.. 0,25'C/W heatsink per channel, IRFP250, 600VA trafo, 47Kuf caps. BOZ with VDrain@25V in front. Oh, mama
Ohhh! It is too much for me.....

What about on +24Vdc or even lower?

How sensitive will they be?
Double 92dB drivers = 95dB

95dB = You can run a stock SEWA

24V would be ideal (18VAC trafo, loads down to 22,5V) for 4 ohm. With 2A bias it can do 8W. I would probably adjust the bias up a notch (as much as the heatsinks can take) 2,5-3A would be nice 3A will give you about 13W.

22,5V, 3A=67,5W => 0,4C'W heatsink.
With the IRFP250 you could get away with a 0,5'C/W (actual) heatsink, but it will be hot; 60'C But the mosfet will stay happy @ 67,5/2 x (0,65+0,35 (al-oxide washer+grease)) +60=34+60=94'C junction temp.

Default Do not use XSM transformers this way

EDCOR’s XSM transformers are not gapped.
I just redieved confirmation from the factory, OK to parafeed however.

Default to Parafeed or Not to Parafeed that is..........

This post is an example of parafeed, http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...565#post986565

Parafeed is feeding a transformer through a capacitor and loading the plate with an inductor, not allowing the DC current through the transformer

Here is a little light reading on the subject from Steve Bench

My long term plan is to build a bi- or tri-amped system

So here is the deal

To be able to use SEWA I could build BOZ as pre, and have multiple outputs - one with fixed full gain fore SEWA, and others with adjustable gain

Main attennuator on input could be a seperate TVC or simply a build in att

PROBLEM ? I recall to have read that PASS pre need main attennuator on output, with regards to stability ?

Comment on this, please

tinitus, shure you can do that. I would probably just insert fixed attenuators on the inputs of the power amps with gain. Drive them in paralell from BOZ. Use a 10K stepped att or pot on input of BOZ. There is no stability issues without att on output.

Hi DIGORA!

8W
And? What should we do with this schematic?
Did you buid or listen it?
You should translate the text:

Quote:
Un seul transistor traite le signal: le BUZ900DP, la contre réaction disparaît. Très proche d'un pur générateur de courant, l'impédance du HP qui servait de convertisseur U/I "s'efface" pour une force appliquée à la menbrane directement image du courant généré. Ce principe est adapté aux transducteurs "large bande" à faible Qts et voies médium aigu en filtrage actif. Le gain est de 24 dB (x16). Ce schéma a une entrée référencée au "-" et non au "0". Du coup, le condonsateur de liaison se charge à la mise sous tension et la sortie haut-parleur doit être temporisée.
