Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
The 5932 or 6L6WGA is a larger more powerful audio beam tetrode valve than the 6V6G receiver types.
The 6L6G has an anode dissipation of 19 Watts maximum, the 5932 increases that to 21 Watts with anti vibration characteristics and the 5881 has 23 Watts maximum dissipation and also the rugged construction.
The 5932 was used for audio amplifiers and also as a series pass element for stabilised power supplies. It is a rugged version of the 6L6GT as is the 5881.
The valve is electrically equivalent to the 6L6G but is of a squat tubular construction and higher anode and screen dissipation.
The box anode is 11 x 22 x 30 mm and obscures the other electrodes. The base is large at 40 mm diameter.
The wide glass tube envelope is 36 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 82 mm tall.
Reference: Datasheet. Type 5932 was first introduced in 1952.
