HELP: High impedance load for SET amplifier
Posted by OperFan on August 6, 2020 at 01:17:03:
Hello there to all SET audiophile fellows,
I would appreciate any hint/help concerning the following use case:
I own a commercial SET amplifier (Coincident Frankenstein Mk3); it has 8 and 16 Ohm speaker taps. I would like to experiment with a field-coil speaker/chassis that exhibits an impedance range of 24-30 Ohm.
Generally speaking, I know that with SET amplifiers "higher" is better than "lower" when it comes to speaker impedance...but there might be also more subtle aspects.
So, my question:
Could I encounter issues concernign power transmission, tube life span or dammage risk for the output transformer ?
Thanks in advance!
