 14th November 2008, 05:23 AM #1 habsrock93   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2006 Resistor before tube rectifier I'm in the process of throwing this power supply together http://www.diyaudio.de/archive/dac2.pdf ( just grabbing parts from my misc. box ), but I'm not confident in what wattage those 47 ohm resistors should be. I have 3watt resistors... Any help would be appreciated Thanks Dave

Tube rectifiers don't like too much peak current. You can calculate the required power rating. Just look at the ECC82 data sheet. You know the plate voltage(260V). You know the grid voltage (-9). Find the current draw from each half from the plate characteristics. Ohms law and P=IV will get you the rest. Don't forget that this current is divided over two resistors. Look at the data sheet here
