I finished my "octal fatness" amp with a single-ended el-34 power section on sunday. I took some measurements last night just to see where I was sitting at as far as plate voltage, current draw, and output. I was kindof expecting this to be around 10-12 watts but these are my numbers..... Plate voltage: 370V Cathode voltage: 18V Plate Current: 51ma So the formula for dissipation is Power= (plate voltage-cathode voltage) * plate current........correct???? This means I'm outputing just under 18 watts??? that seems a little high. I know an el-34 will handle 25 watt dissipation......but my OT (hammond 125ese) is only rated at 15 watts (but it says it will handle 80ma max dc bias). Is it safe?
