OTL with 6S19P?
 
I have 10pcs of 6S19P thought about a future OTL project,either for 8 ohm´s speakers or headphones.Anyone have any suggestions,the Pmax is 11w.:)

Hi,
we are discussing about OTL SE here:
OTL SE

with your tubes you can do something similar.

You can also see:

6C19P = 6S19P (I think).

Regards.

Yes the are the same.

I will follow thet tread:checked: Just not sure wither i can substitute 6S19P into that construktion whitout recalculating the whole thing.:rolleyes:

I imagine 6C19P and 6080 are quite different tubes. So you need a datasheet with curves to recalculate the values.
I saw it's not so easy to find curves in the web for 6C19P.

I think(but I am not so expert) you can trying empirically, using the schematic like it is, putting 5 tubes per channel, and changing only the cathode res(under the 5 tubes).
Start with high value of cathode res(500 ohm - 20W). Then measure the voltage across this resistor. Using ohm law you can easy find the current flowing for each tube. I=V/R*5
Then decrease the value of this cathode res gradually, until you don't have about 90mA for each tube(450mA tot.)
This is the value of max current admitted for your tube(I found this value in the web).
Remember that this res dissipate a lot of power. So you need big power type(For my schematic I used 5 x 20 Ohm - 20W in series to reach 80 Ohm - 80W)

That's right:-)

No: http://frank.pocnet.net/sheets/113/6/6S19P.pdf
size of EL84, 7w P diss.

Since you have the specs, you can recalculate it. Empirically won't work, unless you make a huge amount of trials

11w if the volt is under 200.:) Any one know what output would be if I use 4 of them per chanel

It depends on type of configuration.
I imagine less than a couple of watts in single ended.

And about 20-30 Watts in pushpulls like these:

Hi,

Not trying to sound negative but 6C19 is not an optimum valve for use in OTL's. The anode resistance is high and the transconductance is rather low so the output impedance even as cathode follower is high.

Typical data is Rp 400 ohm and Gm 7.5mA/V which gives a mu of ~3 and an output impedance as cathode follower of ~400/(1+3) = 100ohm, so you would need a lot of them in parallell.

There is another small russian valve that is much better, 6C41 which is similiar to a half 6C33C, that would be my choice if I wanted to build a small OTL.

I have seen it on the web,I will read the article on OTL.

You are right,I will look at 6c41 instead.Maybee i can use a6C33c schema,(frontend) for them.:rolleyes: They are half the power of 6C33c so the output might be half of it.Perfekt!:)
