Hello folks, treitz3 here and I have stumbled upon a brick wall that I need some assistance on. If anybody either has information on where to go or information that can help me into what I would like to accomplish, it will be appreciated as this is the last step in designing my entire rig.
Here's the deal, I have a Carver C-16 preamplifier that has two audio outputs. One of them is emulated to sound like a tube output stage and one of them is used as an SS output. Currently, I have the tube emulated output running my 8 ohm Focal 807v's and the SS output running my 4 ohm Tyler acoustics Taylos 7U's in a dual amped, dual speaker'd stereo system. Unconventional, I know, I know but it works for me.
What I would like to do is reduce the signal output on the tube emulated out to best give the same [end result] volume out of both speakers. Unfortunately, the schem's and service manuals are part of the library that the Carver forum does not have in their possession at this time which definitely throws a wrench into the project.
The end result can be a fixed output or variable output**, but I would like the signal to have the best resolution as possible as the end result. All work will be performed by me and I will provide pic's along the way. Does anybody have any suggestions as to where to start knowing what you know now?
Or, would it be easier/wiser to just adjust the input of the amp powering the Focal's [Carver M4.0t] without degradation of the signal itself?
**Variable output preferred if possible.
