Default double mono SE

Was planning on building a double mono, parallel 807 SE amplifier. Before I start buying parts I was wondering if I am completely out of line lol.

Yea, I was only planning on using maybe 4 807's total between the two seperate amps. Guess this is a pretty basic idea, however I am new to the world of tube amp design so... Had a hard time finding parallel mono block SE amps in my searches. A lot of forum talk is that it is wasteful and lacks practicality.

Just have to have reasonably close matching of the tubes, really. And cathode resistors to act as load levelers. You lose a little power that way, but overall it makes for a good fit.

Thanks guys. Sorry if I should have posted elsewhere. Mods, if this is fine I will go ahead and start documenting the build. I am going to have a lot of questions I think and this thread would be better used than making a new.

Now if I can just use some quantum physics to turn all that wasted heat back into energy ...
