Does one need more or less capacity for lowering the bass roll-off frequency? Excuse my ignorance but, although I can follow instructions and build kits, I have hardly any theoretical background. I'd like to read more about the basics, but I don't know where to begin. I bought Owen Bishop's Electronics A First Course, and it's ok, but I need something more focussed on valves and kit building, without getting swamped in mathematics and formulas. I bought a book on valves, but it's full of mind-boggling graphs. I hope you don't mind this rant.
