I'm trying to work through an audio amp circuit, and I found a BJT current source driving 3 resistors with another BJT across them, like to limit current.
Since Vee is 10V, Ve is known and hence Vb, but I can't get Vc right. I'm not doing anything different than normal.
I'm getting Vc=2.10V and Ib=114nA from this, imagine its a matrix eq for Vc and Ib (dam I hate these font's where I looks like 1 so much). The transistor in the real circuit is not fully on. I tried solving with Vbe=0.6V and get Vc=1.26V and Ib=1.34uA
