 22nd August 2008, 12:53 PM #1 jeppix   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2005 Stupid question about voltage Hello to everybody I need an help... probably it's a stupid question but I need some advice. I've a circuit that has two output +80V DC and -80V DC it is possible to split every output? For example with the +80V it's possible to have 2 x +40V and from the -80V have 2 x -40V? Thanks and sorry for the, probably, stupid question..... Andrea

It depends on what level of isolation you require and how much current you want and how complex you are prepared to make it. __________________ www.readresearch.co.uk my website for UK diy audio people - designs, PCBs, modules and more.

yes, was a stupid thing to ask

But I have seen much more stupid things, than this,
from supposedly real clever Audio Electronics Engineers
So called EE jetset members - almost gurus, very educated.

we can say, if you are stupid in your plain asking,
you are in very, very good company

hehe, hehe hehe
haha, haha

better, all you need is 2 identical loads in series. This is normally difficult to obtain.

Then you can get yourself any voltage. 2 x 40 + 2 x 40 .. and whatever else, my friend. Sometimes, using tricks to get a lower component number, is very stupid. Even for DIY Audio. Even for KISS = Keep it simple stupid. Few parts. Low cost. Sometimes will complicate things so much and make your cicruits perfom bad. And this is not what you want .. is it __________________ lineup

But, if the current from any of the taps changes the voltages on all the other taps will also change. A multiple secondary transformer would achieve most of what you require, but sourcing it will not be easy nor cheap. A home re-wind of a toroid with multiple secondaries is very possible at little cost. __________________ regards Andrew T.

If you have a load connected to the 0V point, the current through the load has to go back to the transformer end via the resistors. That will cause a drop of voltage across the resistor of load current * resistor value. This will unbalance the setup, and at one end your voltage will greatly rise above the 80V and at the other side it will collapse toward zero. This will ONLY work if you have very small load currents and very low resistor values. Not for audio amps.
