Default Edcor CXSE25-8-5K Dimensions

Does anyone with one of these transformers know the actual external dimensions? The dimensions on the Edcor website conflict with their own drawing of that bobbin.

I'm trying to check for fitment.

Thanks,
Russ

Hi,

If no one here has one to measure, you can ask for the dimensions exactly through their support forum:

Cheers!

I have a pair of the very first ones. They came in "pimp my ride" metallic blue. They are 3 7/8 inches wide, 4 1/2 inches deep, and 4 13/16 tall. The mounting hole pattern is 3 by 3 3/8 inches.

They have changed the color, but I doubt that they changed the size.

I've got some twenty-five watt CXPP, but no CXSE. They sure are a purdy shade of blue.

Yeah, look at those dimensions and then click on the PDF. I started doing chassis layout and realized that those dimensions didn't jive with what I have read about these transformers on George's site when compared to what I am used to (Hammonds). They seemed too big.

The last couple of batches of Hammond power transformers have been very disappointing and I don't plan to buy any more of them. They are running hotter than ever (both temperature and voltage), which screams to me that they are cheaping-out on windings. Given what they cost, it's more than a bit sad.

I'm going to build an all-Edcor Simple SE and in fact I just put in the order with Edcor (they were very friendly and helpful). I've been searching for a simple SE design and George certainly hands this one over on a silver platter with his handy PCBs and super-ultra-detailed instructions. I've built more than a few PP amps but I have never manged to finish an SE design. I am sort of "over" the whole ultra-high-wattage thing, so building an 845 SE amp doesn't have to be my first anymore.

Thanks...that jives more closely to the PDF, which is what I ended up using.

They are big. Infact I would consider them overkill unless your planning to do a kt88, kt90 or 6550 simple SE optimized for pentode or UL mode.

I recently had them make me some custom OPT's and PT's for my 6c33c SE. Even full power (16Wrms) at 20Hz, the CXSE doesn't seem the slightest bit fatigued. I'm running the power transformer at the VA that I specified and it doesn't buzz and barley gets warmer than room temp. That's made in America for you, boy.

This is one happy customer. Edcor does not skimp on materials and the pricing is very easy on the pocket book. They are no longer "pimp my ride" metallic blue, the are now more of a smurf blue, maybe a little darker

Bring-up/break-in will happen with Chinese EL34s. After that I was planning to try everything I can throw at it from my stash, including Tungsol 6550 re-issues, SED KT-88s, KT-90s. I also have a pair of JJ 6L6GCs with no home. Then there are the 8417s,,,

I wanted to make sure the transformers could take a thrashing.
