Please Help. How connect Pass Transistors in (-) Regulator?

Not open for further replies.

I'm building a dual regulator and I want to beef up the current capability using pass transistors.

I have a good schematic from rason.org that shows how the transisrors are connected to the positive regulator chip.

But I can't find a schematic for how to connect the pass transistors for the negative regulator side.

I'm still unable to post diagrams here, they show up as a red x, but here is the regulator I want to beef up:


and here is a ciruit for the positive side:


Could I simply switch the PNP and NPN transistors, and connect it that way, to the negative regulator, or would I connect it an entirely different way?

Thanks for any responses.
