  3. Shadetree Mechanic liked Shockwave's post in the thread Palomar Electronics Max-Mod. Spoiler alert!.

    It's funny to hear people claim they got better audio or power output changing this transistor. These AF stages are run as emitter...

  6. Shadetree Mechanic attached a file to the thread Diode isolator for multiple PSUs.

    When I first saw the diagram I said " why on the negative side?". The load sensing is on the negative side. Then it makes sense if you...

  7. Shadetree Mechanic liked ExitThirteen's post in the thread Diode isolator for multiple PSUs.

    Thanks, Tallman! That's what I was looking for. So John has the diodes set up on the negative side, not the positive side. I will get...

  8. Shadetree Mechanic liked Megawatt's post in the thread MegaWatt vs. Chinese Imitation 30 amp switching power supply comparison.

    Sure, now some people have done it without a 90 amp diode isolator (RV Battery Isolator) but there is a big risk in burning one of the...

    Make sure the voltage adjustment are set to the same voltage? Try some diodes to see what happens. It certainly won't hurt.

    You'd probably be happy with it straight outta the box. Mine certainly didn't need any fingers in it.

    Get the 6666, that Ranger's white noise is fatiguing to listen to.
