and how...if that can be done.....?
thanks

+1 Rick!
Calculations checked OK. Please accept this A+ grade from an humble physics teacher!

Ok - now here is another question for the heater calculators! I'm going to need to run a 6112 submini a 7327 submini and an ECC99 off of either 18.9V or 12.6V, how do you lot think it would be best to do this

Why not just use a 7812 to regulate the 15v down to 12v and dispense with the resistors?

DC voltage = 15 volts
Tube heater's (combined) power requirement = 12.6 volts @ 700ma
Voltage drop required = 2.4v (15 - 12.6 = 2.4)
2.4 (volts) x 7 (hundred ma) = 16.8 (ohms)
2.4 (volts) / 0.7 (amps) = 3.4285 (watts)
Therefore 16.8 ohm 3.4285 watts. In reality a difficult value to find, so go for the nearest 'easy' value, 18 ohm 5 watt. Always better to have the wattage over-spec'd.
If Loubou agrees, I might get another A+......!!
