4W push pull output transformer

Designed for use in 12AU7/ECC99 low power output amplifiers

There's currently a lot of interest in creating small amplifiers - just 1-2W output. These typically use dual triodes as the output valve: 12AU7, 12BH7, ECC99, etc. This output transformer is designed for just these projects. Just like its bigger brothers, it's made in England, by the same transformer maker as all of the Amp Maker EI transformers and to the same standards.
      Of course, the current and flux requirements are much lower and so the transformer can be tiny, too. Together with the 240V/6.3V toroidal transformer, it's perfect for creating a super-compact amplifier.
      It has clamp-type mounting and comes with a push-fit insulation sleeves to make sure the high-voltage primary solder lugs are touch-proof.

Dimensions & info

This output transformer is just 46mm wide, 40mm deep and 36mm tall. Fixing centres for the U-clamp mounting feet are 56mm apart. Typical bandwidth is 85Hz - 6kHz. Its output impedance is 22,500 ohms and it has both 8 or 16 ohms outputs for speakers.
      Note the solder lug positions shown in the diagram on the right: the speaker outputs are uppermost and the primary winding is on the bottom set of lugs. If your amp build is such that there's a risk of someone inadvertently touching the secondary solder lugs, you must use the slide-on insulating sleeve. Of course, the transformer is so small that you can mount it inside most chassis, and if you do that, you don't need to use the sleeve.

This 4W output transformer is tiny - not much bigger than a 100nF Orange Drop capacitor. This makes it easy to build into your chassis, if necessary
There are 8-ohm and 16-ohm speaker outputs on this transformer's secondary
