Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

Maybe My Description Wasn't Clear

To explain it another way . . . you should have only a single wire going to each of the top caps.

On the driver tubes, your schematic shows the wire to the top cap coming from a 15 henry choke. So, instead of running a second wire from the top cap back underneath to the 0.1 coupling cap, just connect the coupling cap to the output of the choke. In other words, connect the output of the choke to a lug on a terminal strip and then run two wires from the same lug (a Y) - one goes to the top cap, the other goes to the coupling cap.

On the output tubes, the wire from the OT goes to a lug on a terminal strip and then two wires go from the same lug (again a Y) - one goes to the top cap and the other goes to the 200 ohm resistor which is mounted on Pin 3 of the socket.

I guess the choke is used in place of a plate load resistor?
