    Hi all

    I just salvaged this beast from a broken amplifier and it is absolutely massive in my opinion, I am honestly abit intimidated by it, so I want to make sure I get it right.

    The place where it says:
    SEC: 2x50V/6,25A

    Are those 6.25 amps per secondary or a combined total?
    Depending on the answer for question one, that 6,3AT fuse that is specified on the right.. primary or secondary side(s) and what does the T mean?

    Thanks in advance all :)

    6.3AT means 6.3a time delay.
    It appears to be a fuse for each secondary it would indicate around 630 va which by the size I would think it close.

    Alright, 6.25A coupled with a 6.3AT fuse per secondary, got it.

    Bonus question, those transformer fuses, are they normally a resettable type?

    There may not be a fuse there at all. It may be a recommendation. The designation suggests a non-resetable fuse.

    time delay can also go under Slo-Blo fuse, they can be had in 3AG glass fuse style.
