ESL Bias Power Supply running 2 seperate panels?
 
Question? Can a single powersupply, say the right channel run two seperate ESL panels on the same chanel one being the full range ESL, and the other a Bass panel. The Bias power supply would be hypothetically capible of over 4kv. The full range ESL would be supplied with one tap of the ladder circut at 1kv, and the bass panel which would require 4x the voltage due to the inverse square law would receive the 4kv tap....Is this method possible???

Yes, it can. jer

That works fine, there really is no reason to make two separate supplies in this case.

Thanks All,

I'll use this ingormation to build my next panels using both full range and Bass panels!

One thing though, Make sure that you take your taps off of the multiplier stage on the same high side, and, not on the side that the ground is on.
Otherwise you will get lots of ripple and hum in your panels when you are using a 60hz supply.
