andow said:Sorry if this is obvious, but how do you calculate the current through the Zener diode replacing the neon bulb in the meter circuit? :-[
dmp said:Yes, the pot in parallel with the cap make a HPF.
It does make the compression more sensitive to high frequencies, as the low frequencies are filtered out.
To maintain the same amount of compression as the pot is turned up, the peak reduction would have to be turned up.
scott2000 said:Not sure what area of the 6AQ5 you're reading. But yes, I'd maybe try trouble shooting what your exact problem is which would be that I guess? Unless there was something else...
Not sure about what the resistors are doing where you substituted...maybe someone else knows and could tell you if it'll have any effect.
Could always parallel another resistor to get you closer but idk....66k ish sounds like a weird one to have on hand..
unless you had multiple 33k laying around...could series and parallel to get your 22k
FarisElek said:Pin 5, which received B+ off of the 10k resistor (R34), was reading somewhere around 335v. Very off.
scott2000 said:yeah... sounds off....
You probably already did checks for resistor values, open resistors, bad connection, bad 6aq5 ..?
Maybe could post a schem with your voltages with everything in and idling? Someone may be able to help easier with that language...
scott2000 said:came across this...not sure if you've seen it...
may have some relevant bits of direction or clues to help....??
