 16th September 2019, 05:47 PM #21 phase   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2004 Any particular model of Allen Bradley resistor? Am sorting out a fet output amp and am looking at options.
 16th September 2019, 06:04 PM #22 edbarx   diyAudio Member   Join Date: May 2018 If this inductance component of wirewound resistors manifests itself in real circuits, a frequency source can be used to obtain a table of readings as follows: Column: Frequency/Hz, Voltage/V, Current/mA, Current Phase with respect to input voltage. Several reading (not less than 5) should be taken. Using an equivalent circuit for the resistor plus parasitic inductance and parasitic capacitance, the values of both can be calculated, and then tested to predict current and phase values out of the measurement range (extrapolation). The parasitic inductance is in Series with the resistance and the capacitance in Parallel with the series RL arm. The derivation of the formulae can be done using BOTH phasor diagrams (2D vectors), and complex numbers. Since these are measurable qualities of wirewound resistors, the quickest way to ascertain oneself of their behaviour is to measure them and simulate them. __________________ Thanks for helping me design my first amplifier.

It's the regular carbon composition one. I have stocks of 0.47 Ohm. I think it must be good ones that the resistance value is accurate. Must be hard to find such values?

Can be used as a plate load, carrying DC so that it has a chance to enhance even harmonics.

For tube amps, we have many better low noise carbon options than the Allen-Bradley, tho probably expensive.

I agree with AllenB, I believe V coefficient has something to do with the way certain resistor material respond to transient in music.

AllenB talked about its effect on harmonic types when used in crossover. I didn't perceive any change in harmonics type by ears. It may also be undetectable when measured. In amps, V/T coefficients are probably the most important parameters, but not all. I don't even know what the most critical parameter that makes my favorite resistor (secret! ) sounds the way it does.
