    What to do with 16 Ohm tap

    Post by daveshel on Mon Feb 03, 2014 11:47 am

    I'm rebuilding a Dynaco Stereo-35. I'm using larger binding posts and do not intend to connect the 16 Ohm tap from the output transformers. I assume that means simply not connecting the yellow wires from the transformer, but what do I do with the wire that is connected to the #6 hole on the PC boards?

    Dave,

    If the larger binding posts only allow 4 and 8 ohm and ground connection points, just leave off the post for the 16 ohm tap.  Simply make sure the yellow wire is connected to terminal 6 on the pc board.

    There is no 4 ohm tap; these are the original OPTs with 8 and 16 ohm taps. So the yellow wire from the 16 ohm windings of the OPT connects to terminal 6 on the PC board?

    Oh,

    Right.  Install the new terminals for ground and 8 ohms and connect the corresponding wires.  Then route the yellow wire to terminal 6. Repeat for the other channel.
