Bridging to mono: how many output transformers
05/30/18 at 17:11:29
 
Just to confirm: if I want to build 2 ZKIT1 amps, serial bridging each for extra output, will I need four output transformers (bridging the OT output)?  Or would I need two (bridging before the output transformers)?

Never mind - just found this downstream:

"If you want to run a ZKIT-1 in mono you'll have to leave the design exactly as it is.  Consolidating transformers would change the design from a floating series output stage back to a conventional amplifier where output tubes are in parallel into a single transformer."

Ok. But what if you want to put 2 (or more) Zkit1's together as a single 12 Watt (or more) mono monster block?????

I want it to be as easy as taking the outputs from the first set of tubes and jumping them to the second pcb board into the second set of tubes. Maybe with a bigger output transformer. But of course it isn't.

Or how 'bout simply doubling the value of every single component? I know it won't work because circuit theory isn't linear, but it would be nice to learn the basic reasons why.
