L Loaded ZV9 Help???
 
An L Loaded ZV9, Why Not :D I just have this thing (DIY Thing) about not doing it exactly like N.P. does his thing. I like the L Loaded idea. Not to take away from Carpenter and his lead on ZV7-T and such, He seems to be taking it on and propagating that idea, etc... But, I really like the "idea" of the power JFET and the inductor loading. Very "Tube Like" :bigeyes: and such. I just figured that last year, I was working on an LH (PLH) and the Christmas music was fine... But it didn't work out as good as I would have hoped??? I need to get another proto working for Christmas music this year??? Why Not???
So, to that end, I'm putting together a ZV9 Gain stage on a big heatsink. I'll post a pic when I figure out I how I did that last. But, Just an LU1014D, with 2 IRFP240's cascoding it, and the load 1/2 above it. I would eventually want that to be a big L thing. And, I have a few. But, I might start with a light bulb or two, ala ZV8, but, waht do ya think???
Thanks... Gotta go cook for the parental units...

Boy, I've never heard it put that way before, uhh, you were talking about doing the "wild-thing" weren't you?:D :D :D

I love the sound of my choke loaded amp. I'm happy to see I have company. This will be an interesting thread.

John:)

Oh, I didn't notice the word "for". Kind of changes everything;)

Wild Thing :bigeyes: No, I think that was a line from a Cone Heads movie :D :D :D
Can't seem to figure out how I get these schemo's into a usable format. Some application has taken over or something???

O.K. something like this :smash:

but you've got that little jfet supplying current to two mosfets:hot:

I'm thinking something along these lines (ground reference missing):

The inputs will need a ground reference. But, if you want to play with the source resistors:

carpenter, are you trying to confuse me :confused: There will be a real small amount of current necessary for the gate to feel like it's GND'ed. It will get it through the feedback R and the 100 ohm to GND, just like the pics you posted(47 ohms). And, speaking of the pics you posted :confused: This is an SE amp not a big diff SOZ like your having fun with ;)
It is something between ZV8 with an Inductor & ZV9 - the Aleph. I'd like to try to get a little more Iq out of it than ZV9, and a little more linearity and effeciency than ZV8. The 2 cascode transistors are due to an eventuall expectation of close to a 37 Volt rail once things seem to work O.K.
So what's that 1000uF doin in there :confused:
FaLaLaLaLaa LaLa La La :D

Can I blame it on my medication?:D

I'm so glad to read this. I think it means that I don't need the extra resistor to ground at the gates of my buffers in my ZV7-T?

Thanks for the enlightenment!:D

John

btw, that big ol' cap is me copying Nelson's F1 (or was it the F2?)

I believe in ZV8 & 9, Nelson uses a gate to GND R in the circuits without feedback. Then when he adds feedback he takes them out...
