Hello Mietek,

over the decades I used several pairs of the 6146 family, such as 6146A, 6146B and the rugged 6146W. You only have to re-neutralize the PA. Don't mix different tube models, always use a pair of the same tube type. Depending your power-supply, I would prefer the -B or -W tubes. Those can work better with Ua over 850V DC. There is a difference in Plate Dissipation: the 6146, 6146A and 6146W 25W, the 6146B 35W

Hi, thanks for answer.
The problem with that tube is they are practically not available in Poland. So I am looking for replacemnt. Some TV's sweep tubes looks similar in catalogs but dummy replacement can fire out nice old piece of equipment.

Hello again,

DO NOT use any TV sweep tubes!! This will damage your SB102!! If they look similar to the 6146's, for shure: they are NOT the same. The tube data will be completely different! It's very difficult to redesign the PA-tube configuration for a sweep tube as well as the Pi-network!
The only replacement-tubes you can use are:
8298A or QE05/40 or YL1370.
These tubes can be used by only neutralizing the PA.
