555 circuit design? OK, I concede that.

You might consider the 5831:
https://frank.pocnet.net/sheets/201/5/5831.pdf

No, I haven't used them, but the data sheet rates them for Class-B audio
use at 370kW per pair!!
You'll need a heater supply of 2100A per tube, & the rest in proportion.
I don't want to hear about your power bills, either :-)

What is the most powerful audio output tube, as far as RMS wattage

big sucker. 4 terminals, so I'm guessing it's a power triode for RF
output, directly heated cathode. Lots of 'issues' powering it up for an
audio amplifier. You'll need a center-tapped cathode supply, for
starters, and a fixed bias supply for the control grid. Since the
control grid [appears to be] on one of the 'cap' electrodes, it's
probably designed to operate at a positive voltage for class C
operation. So a Class 'A' or push-pull 'AB' might not give you the
results you want. I could see AB2 maybe working, but lots of
experimenting involved in making something like *THAT* "fit".

better to use KT88 or similar [like a Marshall amplifier]

http://www.drtube.com/library/schematics/69-marshall-schemas#Major

http://www.drtube.com/schematics/marshall/200w.gif
(a generic schematic)

4 of them gets you 200W. I guess 8-10 would get you 500W with the right
transformer.

Hmmm...

"RMS power" is a common way of saying "power as measured correctly."

In truth, specifying power in terms of RMS watts is a way of saying:

He can't "take authority." I'm the Alpha Male Engineer here, if such a thing is possible.

Of course he can, if he has a leg to stand on, even if you fancy

---

You seem to have a problem with "authority."

---
When a conjecture which I believe to be false is proven to be true, I
have no problem getting behind the authority of the proof.

You, on the other hand, can't abide correction and, consequently, set
yourself up as the arbiter of true and false, as you see it.

It's not my place to "endorse" him, nor is it my inclination to call
him, or anyone, a "cunt."

That particular profanity says a lot about how some guys feel about

Usenet is nearly dead. SED is unusual in that it is active, and some

Are you going to spend the rest of your life getting meaner and
fouler, snarling like some old dog? That's sad.

Designed anything useful recently? I have >:-}


I have two personal designs on just now, a pulse generator (big deal,
color LCD and user interface and Linux and stuff, two FPGAs, ECL,
phemts, 14 or so power supplies) and the redesign of a VME waveform
generator. And maybe an IQ modulator to simulate an aircraft
transducer, the simplest and most fun. My kids have some other
projects going.

I don't like working on multiple designs simultaneously; it's too hard
to shift mental gears. But a modern design flow forces it.

Nothing with tubes.

Do you endorse KRW?

It's not my place to "endorse" him, nor is it my inclination to call
him, or anyone, a "cunt."

That particular profanity says a lot about how some guys feel about
women.

Usenet is nearly dead. SED is unusual in that it is active, and some
serious people post serious electronic issues here. You, and Jim, and
Sloman, are damaging SED with off-topic posts and coarse, juvenile
insults.

Right now I'm working two at once, another LED billboard
driver-related power supply _and_ a sonar chip.

I like multiple projects at once... that way a brain freeze on one
drops me over to the other... and then, stress-relieved, a great
dawning occurs on the first problem ;-)

In background, I also have a number of "free home demonstration" Spice
models in the works... I toss those up on the LTspice List (*) and
attract paying customers for modeling... I'm beginning to find
modeling more fun than chip design... after you've designed HUNDREDS
of chips it becomes grunt work... nothing is ever new... and new is
what I thrive on.

(*) A double-edged sword situation... more and more LTspice models
work _only_ on LTspice... ignoring the real-world fact that big shops
tend to use Cadence, etc.

Likewise, Analog Devices, TI and others, write models that only run on
their proprietary platforms, or like Microchip, write models that are
convergence-impaired >:-}

So I write behavioral models that run anywhere, yet don't divulge any
process-proprietary information.

The "free home demonstration" models are written only from datasheet
information to avoid getting sued, although I expect that to happen
sooner or later Wink
