Hi Joe,

The B- is adjustable by the way. Is this so you can zero the DC offset?
This is set to allow for DC coupling to the CFs.

How can I make this sound better? I need to get a little more low end out of it. Any suggestions for coupling cap values? I have some .1/600 volt.
Any idea what's in there for the moment?

100nF would be to low on it's own but you could try replacing the output loading R's to 100K if you have a pair.

Thanks for the reply.

I took out the 1mfd coupling caps and replaced them with what I happened to have. I could only find some .1/600v. The original caps were letting some good old DC thru. Shame on them!

This is set to allow for DC coupling to the CFs.

Ok, what is the correct procedure to set the B-?
