1 TUBE 1 WATT AC/DC AMPLIFIER
This amplifier, utilizing a dual power outputrectifier tube, is suitable for low
volume from a phonograph pickup having at least two volts output. Either a dynamic
or permanent magnet speaker may be used with eq^ual results, provided directions are
followed regarding filter choke L. The usual operation of an amplifier of this type
is from a 115 volt A.C, soiirce. If D.C, voltage is available it may be necessary to
reverse the power plug if the amplifier will not operate.
Because of the few parts used, this amplifier can be built very small and compact,
making it ideal to mount in a small phonograph case.

2 TUBE li WATT AC/DC AMPLIFIER
Because of its greater gain, this amplifier is capable of fair volinne with any type
crystal phonograph pickup or radio tuner. It delivers up to 1^ watts output, which is
about all an average 3" speaker can handly. The amplifier is of the AC /DC type and
featiores an inverse feedback network to improve fidelity, and a tone control. As is
true of all amplifiers shown, the power switch can either be a seperate toggle, rotary
or push type switch, or it may be attached to the volume or tone control shafts as
part of the operation of that particular control, according to the desires of the con
structor.
There should be no particular problem in getting the completed amplifier to operate
properly. If the amplifier has a tendancy to "howl" or oscillate, reverse the con
nections to the secondary, i.e., voice coil, side of the output transformer. This
amplifier will make a very compact unit, especially since no filter choke or power
transformer is used. Parts List

2 TUBE 4 WATT AC BOOSTER AMPLIFIER
"TRANSFORMERLESS "
The p\irpose of this low gain, one stage amplifier, is to boost the output of a radio
tuner or preampllf ier to good room Toltime, Although this is a "transformerless" A.G.
amplifier, using a single power tube, about 4 watts output can be obtained due to the
voltage doubler rectifier circuit used. Any type of peimanent magnet (PM) speaker can
be used to the anLplifier, provided the output transformer is properly matched. Like
wise, the input transformer will depend upon the type of input used. If a radio tuner
output is connected to the primary of Tl, a 3:1 ratio audio transformer may be used;
if a magnetic phonograph pickup is required, the primary of Tl must match this pickup
unit.
Fair quality can be expected from the speaker with this circuit. In constructing
the amplifier, be certain Tl is located as far as possible from the output transformer
or filter choke to minimize inductive hum problems,

2 TUBE BATTERY IIWERCOM AMPLIFIER AND 2 TUBE AC /DC INTERCOM AR/DPLIFIER
These two intercommunication type amplifiers are very similar, "but for the power
supply, "A" is designed for battery operation and is therefore instantly useable
by pressing the pushtotalk switch on either speaker unit. This connects the
voice coil to the amplifier properly and also turns on the tube filaments, A 4wire
cable is necessary on this system and for best results, is limited to 100 feet be
tween remote speaker and amplifier, "B" is designed for AC /DC operation, therefore
is characteristiceilly a slow heater. It is best used as shown, a master (local)
station having all control, and a slave (remote) station normally open to the
master, A £wire cable is all that is necessary with this arrangement and up to
500 feet can be used without difficulty.
The speakers are 2" to 5" PM units and the pushtotalk switches are of the push
button spring return types. In assembly, especially in amplifier "B", care
should be taken in locating the input transformer Tl, If hum persists regard
less of its location, try reversing either primary or secondary winding of Tl.

3 TUBE 2 WATT ECONOMY" AG /DC AMPLIFIER
The featirre of this AC /DC amplifier is its low cost due to the small number of parts
used. It is quite suitable for phonograph reproduction with good gain capabilities
from a less sensitive pickup. With the arrangement shown for biasing the two ampli
fier tubes, it is possible to ground the cathodes of the tubes directly, eliminating
the need of cathode resistors and condensers. The Bias Cell provides essential grid
—
bias voltage to the 12SE5 tube when connected in the proper manner shell of bias
cell to grid terminal. Bias for tlie 50L6GT tube is obtained from the divider net
work R4 and R5, connected across the speaker field. This method of biasing pro
vides a slightly higher plate voltage to be effective on the power tube, consequen
tly increasing its power output. It should be noted that the two filter condensers
do not have their negative leads connected to the same point, so if it is intended
to use a dual filter unit in the construction of this amplifier, one should not
be obtained with a common negative lead.

3 TUBE 4 WATT AC MIPLIFIER
For a sraall amplifier having good gain and tone, the reliable circuit shown is
very satisfactory. It will operate v/ell from either a phonograph pickup or radio
tuner and deliver good room volume.
Very little difficult should be experienced in constructing this unit. Due to
the use of the decoupling resistor, R6, stability is greatly improved resulting
in better tone quality, A tone control is incorporated to provide a reduction of
—
the higher audio frequencies when desired.

3 TUBE 4 WATT AC "TRANSFORMERLESS" AMPLIFIER
Although this amplifier circuit is very similar to the previous one, its chief
difference lies in the power supply. It uses a voltage doubler rectifier circuit
to furnish the higher voltages necessary to obtain the 4 watts output from a 25L6
tube. This is made possible without the aid of a power transformer, consequently
the size and weight of the amplifier will be much less than the former. R10 can
be either a line cord resistor, ballast tube, or fixed resistor, depending upon
the constructors choice.

3 TTOE 8 WATT AC AMPLIFIER
This is a unique amplifier in that three tubes are doing the work of a normal
five tube A.C. amplifier. The 6AD7G*s are combination triotiepower pentode tubes,
and as connected, results in a two stage pushpull amplifier capable of about 8
watts output. Being in pushpull, the power tubes effectively reduce the even
harmonic distortion, thereby considerably improving the amplifier's fidelity. The
triode portion of one 6AD7G tube is a first stage amplifier, while the trlode por
tion of the other 6AD7G is a phase inverter stage to provide pushpull operation
to the pentode portions of the two tubes, A fairly strong input voltage can be
fed into the amplifier from either a phonograph pickup or radio tuner.
Assembly of this amplifier is somewhat more involved than in the previous tjrpes,
due to the greater number of parts used, therefore greater care must be exercised
in its construction. Since two similar tubes are used, be careful that you do
not confuse the wiring to the tube sockets.

3 TUBE QUICK HEATING AC INTERCOM AMPLIFIER
The amplifier shown is an A.C. ccsmmunication type which feat\ires battery type amp
lifier tubes for fast operation. This particular amplifier is convenient where only
occasional operation is desired as a paging systenxo When ready to operate, the
switch is first closed, turning on the amplifier. After approximately five seconds,
it Is permissable to talk into the system as it will then be in full operation.
Any reasonable nimber of remote statioms may be used in this system if care is taken
in matching the output transformer to the speakers. Low volume is to be expected
from the amplifier, but a volume control is incorporated in order to have complete
control of the output.
In assembling the amplifier, carefully separate input transfoimer, T1, from the
other transformers to eliminate inductive hum pickup. In adjusting R6 for correct
filament voltage, start the tap from the ground end. With a DC voltmeter connected
across C3, move the tap on R6 away from the grounded end until 4J volts is in
dicated on the meter.

4 TUBE 5 WATT AC/BA.T P. A. i\MPLIFIER
Here is an amplifier suitable for low power output from a six volt storage bat
tery or 115 volt AC supply. Switching from the 6 volt DC to the 115 volt AC is
done by means of sw1. Both a phonograph pickup and double button carbon micro
phone can be used simultaneously in the input circuits. Microphone current is ob
tained from, the cathode circuit of the 6V6 tube, and as a result, a sperate excit
ation battery is not required. Inverse feedback is supplied to the last two amp
lifier stages for better control.
Building this amplifier requires sufficient chassis area so that the components
will not be crowded. Be careful not to place T1 too close to T3, All primary
leads to T3 should be as heavy and direct as possible. RFC1 and 2, 6X5GT, the
vibrator, R16, C8, C9, C10 and C13, should be located as close to trans

4 TUBE 6 WATT AC HIGH FIDELITY AMPLIFIER
This amplifier is somewhat similar to the previous one, the difference lying in the
control circuit. In this instance, R2 and C1 control the high frequencies and R6
and C3, the low frequencies. The plate circuits of the 6SC7 tube are paralleled, re
mixing the two tone attenuated outputs. This results in any degree of tone compen
sation of the two controls being obtained as desired. Phonograph or radio tuner in
put is recommended for this amplifier.

4 TUBE 6 WATT AC HOME RECORDING AMPLIFIER
For an amplifier suitable for home recording and playback, the above amplifier is
highly recommended. The input circuits handle a crystal or dynamic high impedance
microphone and a phonograph pickup. The output feeds into a speaker or crystal re
cording head. Switch sw1 controls the amplifier for either the microphone and re
corder, or the phonograph pickup and speaker as desired. When recording, the over
modulation indicator, N, will be very helpful in showing by intensity, the amount
of volume necessary to record properly. In initially adjusting this indicator,
make test cuts on a recording blank, adjusting the volume control R7 and indicator
R16 until the recording head just begins to overcut a groove. R16 is then set
for proper operation and need not again be adjusted, A radio tuner may be fed into
J1 for recording radio programs, provided the input signal level does not over
load the 6SJ7 tube.

4 TUBE 10 WATT AC HIGHPmELITY AMPLIFIER
This is a medium gain phonograph or radio tuner amplifier for highfidelity re
production. It featiores a 6N7 phase inverter and 6V6GT pushpull power output
tubes, together with an overall inverse feedback network. A high frequency tone
control is provided to reduce the high response when desired. This control is
completely cut out by having sw1 mounted on the control R3, Of course, high
quality parts are necessary to obtain high fidelity response in any amplifier,
so care should be taken in their choice, Contruction of this amplifier should
offer no particular problem if normal design is followed.

These three inputs can be mixed at will to feed the output circuit to the 500 ohm line.
Of course, the amplifier following this preamplifier must have an input transformer de
signed for 500 ohms input
Good filtering is supplied througnout the high voltage feed circuits, and an entire
ly seperate power supply makes the preamplifier self sufficient. Little trouble
should be encountered in constructing this unit if care is exercised in placing the
various parts.

TUBE 10 WATT CIASSB 6 VOLT DC AMPLIFIER
5
For a six volt battery operated amplifier, this arrangement will provide good vol
ume and power output from a crystal or dynamic microphone and phonograph pickup.
It is satisfactory for use in a sound truck or car when too great a speaker cover
age Is not demanded. Three 6N7 and two 6X5 tubes are used throughout the amplifier,
simplifying the nimiber of replacement tubes to carry. Be certain a heavy duty vib
rator is used, as the primary current consumption may be 10 amperes. Since it is
seldom necessary to operate the phonograph and microphone simultaneously, a switch
sw1, selects the current desired.
If, after completing the amplifier you are dissatisfied with the tone, try shunt
ing the secondary winding of T1 to ground with equal resistors of 100,000 ohms,
watt each. In any class "B" amplifier, the tone is always improved when the
•g
power tubes are driven fairly hard, consequently the amplifier sounds better when
the volimie is high. Objectionable vibrator "hash" is generally due to insufficient
shielding or poor grounds, and at times, can only be corrected by trial and error.

5 TUBE 13 WATT AC HIGHI'IDELITY AMPLIFIER
Here is an A.C, amplifier of very fine tone quality, having all pushpull
stages. Likewise, it is suitable for operation from either a phonograph
piolcup or radio tuner. When connected to a crystal pickup unit, the input
leads connect directly to the pickup. If a radio tuner is used, a high
quality 1:1 ratio input transfoimer should be used, having a pushpull sec
ondary in order to get proper pushpull input. Inverse feedback is provid
ed through resistors R14 and R15.
Generally, cathode bypass condensers are not necessary in a pushpull
amplifier, but are here specified to compensate for slight differences of
emission between the various pairs of pushpull tubes. The volume control,
R1, is a dual affair, giving equal variations of both grid resistances for
each degree of rotation. The tone control, R17, effectively shortcircuits
the higher audio frequencies as the resistance is reduced. When connected
to a good speaker system, this amplifier should give excellent fidelity and
volime.

The above Is a quick heating, all pushpull, phonograph amplifier, capable of
good volume and tone. It is especially desireable for use in intermittent auto
—
matic phonograph players commonly called a "Juke boz." When turned on, the amp
lifier is fully ready to operate within 15 seconds, as all tubes operate as a
fized bias stage and together with the 300 volts on their plates, give very strong
output power without distortion. A dual volume control, R1 and R2, adjusts the
input level and a tone control {R14) sets the high frequency response.

5 TUBE 30 WATT AC P. A. HIGHFIDELITY AlVIPLIFIER
T'l3 is an amplifier similar to the previous' one, but is more suitable for public
address work. Instead of a 6N7 phase inverter, the 6N7 tube is used as an electronic
mixer feeding into a pushpull input transformer. This type of mixer allows any set
ting of either volume control ( R3 or R8 ) to be made without affecting the other,
A microphone and phonograph input can be used simultaneously, and any type of speaker
or speakers matched to the output. Inverse feedback aids in the fidelity of this amp
lifier, giving it smooth operation.

6 TUBE 6 WATT AC 2 CliAMKEL AMPLIFIER
Here is a channel amplifier suitable to operate from a radio tuner or phono
tvra
graph, pickup. One channel is designed to pass the lower audio frequencies while the
other passes the higher frequencies. The degree of volume in each channel is con
trolled by tone controls R8 and R9 so that the constructor may compensate for room
conditions, R1 is the overall volume control for the system, while R5 is prelim
inarily adjusted for tone balance. With one large speaker for low frequencies and
a small one for high frequencies, the system is capable of excellent fidelity and
volume.

8 TUBE 12 WATT AC PHONO. EIPANDER AND COMPRESSOR AMPLIFIER
This unit is a special ptLonograph amplifier designed for either ezpansion or com
pression of the normal volume level of the recording to any degree, Srpansion is
sometimes desired to bring out more vividly the heavy passages of a recording than
would otherwise appear. Compression is likewise occasionally used to flatten out
the response of a recording having too great a variation in volimie. Either condit
ion can be obtained by varying R19; moving the control from the center to the right
increases the volume compression, and to the left increases volume e^cpansion.
Sufficient gain may be realized in this amplifier to easily reach the 12 watts out
put at any setting of R19. NOTE: R1 should be preset in conjunction with R19

8 TUBE £5 WATT AC 4CHANKElL P. A. AMPLIFIER
A high power public address amplifier is shown, having two microphone and two phono
graph inputs with, complete electronic mixing provided on all channels. A separate
tone control for the microphone and phonograph channels is used for greater flexibil
ity. High gain and up to 85 watts output is easily obtained, making this a Rood all
around amplifier. The phono, inputs are designed for veiy low output cartridges only.
Again a separate chassis for the power supply is desired in constructing the amp
lifier so as to reduce the interaction between the power supply and input circuits.
If this precaution is taken, little troub].e should be experienced in getting this
amplifier to function properly.

11 TUBE 75 WATT AC P. A, AMPLZFIER
This last amplifier is a high power, high gain unit, having two microphone and two
phonograph inputs, separate bass and treble tone controls, inverse feedback, and a
fixed bias pushpull parallel output circuit. A 2Eg volt battery is used for bias
purposes rather than a bias power supply. A battery so used will give long service.
A novelity in the tone control circuits is the location of the controls. Being in the
inverse feedback circuit, the controls serve to attenuate the amount of feedback at
some frequencies more than others, giving tone control effects.
It is best to mount the power supply on a separate chassis from the amplifier so as
to eliminate all possibilities of coupling between them. It is advisable to make
periodic checks on the bias battery to make certain a full 22J volts is available,
otherwise short life for the power output tubes can be expected.
