Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

I asked the guy that Designed my Horn System this question .........

And His response was the following:

"Yes, true but ...

Depending on the used amplifier you can or you shouldn't. If your main amp is capable to give good bass signals without noise (without the need for much power) then your present connections are optimal.

This way you keep the harmonic signature of the sound fed into the bass system the same for optimal sounding integration.


If your main amp is not capable (makes too much noise or uses relative small output transformers then it can be beter to use a pre-amplifier or split the signal on the input of your main amplifer and connect from there to your bass amplifier. Make sure that the input impedance of both amps are not too low, your source might not be able to drive this load if it has a relative high output impedance (TVC's do not like this at all!).

As long as the output impedance is roughly 10 times lower then the combined input impedance then you're good to go. A pre-amplifier with output a buffer or 2 buffered outputs work best."

Upon further discussion with him and sending him the Schematics of My Amplifier, His recommendation was to feed the Full Signal to amp.
