The concern over using a higher rated fuse is warranted. However, in my particular case, I approached Jack - he sat me down, made me comfortable. And I threw that bad boy in...

That is what I like to see, you threw caution to the Woo!  biggrin.gif

Jack has the WA6SE rated nominally at 44 watts.  At 110/120V, that amounts to like 0.37 A.  If a 2A fuse blew, something's got shorted; need to talk to Jack right away.  Change to a 3A fuse will make the situation worse.

Sonic Youth "Sonic Nurse" on 33 and a third.. WA22 and LCD-2's;)

Quick non Woo related question. What would be considered too much power for the LCD-2 and He-500 per channel? 5? 6? 8?

Reasonable thinking, but the inrush current is much higher than 44 watts.  This is why the higher fuse rating.  In particular, the inrush current once the amp's soft start feature is off is considerable. 

 

Given that Woo states 3 amp is fine I would not hesitate to use a 3 amp fuse.  However, I believe the OP has an issue which needs to be addressed.

And it seems clear that the issue is that tube!!  Am I missing something?

my new HE-500 with WA6-SE! 

 

drives them very well, was worried it wouldn't be able to drive them well at first, but it gets loud at just 9/10 o clock, 11 o clock being very loud.

Dubstep girl,

Looks like the HE-500 is plugged into the high impedance port. Is that intentional? Does it sound better?

yes, i think they sound pretty similar, but the high impedance has more gain and seems to make the sound slightly fuller over the lower impedance which is more neutralish, might just be in my head, or might be too subtle to notice, so i just use the high impedance anyways.

DSG, it is clearly all about the mighty 596!

How are those HE-500 sound with WA6SE?  Hmm...I got my Glenn's 596 adapter's antennae facing backward (opposite from yours).

My antennae face @ 4 o'clock......we're unique like that.wink.gif Perhaps, fine-tuning for radio signals in outer space.
