Default Transformer coupled Sub-Bass...

This is a very short movie clip of my transformer coupled Sub-Bass speaker in action, it really is running this slowly it is not a video-effects speed-change.

The Driver is a Vibe SPACE 15D4, 15 inch (ca. 38 cm) 3600 Watt Subwoofer.

However, there can still be near-field pickup from the PSU itself which makes sorting out what is real and what happens to be seen by the scope to be "interesting".

I am using an external +24V brick type psu for one of my preamps, the one that drives the centre speaker in our 5.1 setup which is SE. Seems to be working fine.
thank you....
if people react to you a certain way, it is not because of them but more because of you....

The power into the electrolytic is current limited to a maximum of 10A peak and half that for turn-on, so there is not the normal turn-on surge which is the main thing that gets the bigger old electrolytics. The cap takes a second or two to power up to full rail.

The power-supply circuit is more complicated than the amplifier itself.

That's what I expected Looking / comparing the datasheets from the "audio grade" caps with industrial grade could be astonishing for many diy builders (lifetime, temperature, ripple current etc.)
Can you explain the sonic benefits of your circuit to normal follower circuits (tube, solid state).... my experience on the common circuits are sonical not the my "cup of tea" but maybe your findings look interesting to me.

Someone has STW34NB20?
Or Other Susan suggested for the project?
Matched would be better.
