I'm building the Kevin Gilmore Amp soon and I have a few questions.
I've never really build a power supply before so a lot of the things a new to me.
I need to pick a transformer. The design for the amp shows 2 36vAC 1 A transformers. Ok I figure no problem, just take out the good old Newark catalog and look for those specs. One problem. It lists "F.L. Volts" "N.L. Volts" etc and I don't get what it means.
Could anyone help me out here? If you can provide a part number (Mouser, Newark or Digikey etc) to something suitable I would really apprectiate it.
I did a quick search on "F-378P", that's the model number on Kevin's diagram. I came up with a website from Hammond and it says "Triad (Parallax) to Hammond". Hammond part # 160H56. But Kevin's diagram says Triad (Magnetek) not (Parallax).
On Antness' amp he uses a Toroidal power supply. I can't find the Talema ones for sale anywhere. He only uses one so I am assuming Toroids have 2 power outputs? Their measurements also seem to be different like "V C.T.".
And my last question is on Bridge Rectifiers. There are about a bazzilion of them around, what should I look for?
If anyone can provide part numbers to those pieces I would appreciate it
