cross-neutralization

cross-neutralization

[¦krȯs ‚nü·trə·lə′zā·shən]
(electronics)
Method of neutralization used in push-pull amplifiers, whereby a portion of the plate-cathode alternating-current voltage of each vacuum tube is applied to the grid-cathode circuit of the other vacuum tube through a neutralizing capacitor.
