  Ok, thanx for helping me to understand that!
So 2 solutions :
  1) Thermostating, something like the Minisonic as advised by Allan Needham
  2) Using a matched pair

I apologize for my poor level of knowledge in electronics but I have great difficulties in understanding how to put a matched pair in my schematic :

  I ve tried that unsuccesfuly :
  Then that, no results either...
