Default seeking comment on first pcb design

This is two capacitance multiplier power supplies on the same board with a star ground point in between. This is between the rectifier and amp boards for ESP P36.

So I used .150" traces where I could. Sorry I don't have the part names but the caps are 4700uF, 1000uF, and 470uF all 63V. The transistors are TIP2955 and BD139.

The transformer will initially be a 400VA 25+25 later replaced by two 30+30 transformers if I like the amp.

Thanks

hi ultrachrome,

I thought DoZ requires a 0-40v DC supply, 30-0-30 will be too big.

I have traced one capacitance multiplier for each channel. A 30+30 transformer yields 38VDC according to Rod's construction article. I'm going to use a 25+25 tranformer because it's what I have on hand so I estimate I will end up in the lower 30s.

The first image I posted is a screen scrape of expresspcb. I drew the schematic I just posted in ms powerpoint.

I drew one side and saw that I could fit another supply on the board by rotating it 180 degrees. This seemed like a good solution because this board would fit with its long side near the back panel of the enclosure, with the transformer.

This allowed each channel the shortest power wiring possible.

I'll post a pic of the enclosure tomorrow.

I rarely turn down help.

Thanks.

Like this. : O )

Could you tell me the voltage in and out that yuo are trying to achieve ? I also have a better regulated schematic you could use instead of this one.

Sorry, I stand corrected, I should have read it more carefully. Rod knows his stuff.
