If I understand correctly, if I go with a better class amp. I can go with lower watts because they transmit more wave in the correct carrier so it will sound just as loud as a class c with more watts? And it wont splatter everything else!
I *think* TNT amps are only class B, not AB, but somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
Again, somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but the class C will sound louder because of the distortion. Some distortion in broadcast is intentionally added to increase the perceived volume. A good example would be commercials on radio and TV.
I've only ever owned 1 transistor mobile amp, and I'm not even currently using that, so I could wrong for sure. I've owned 4 or 5 base tubers, so I guess I've just never really paid much attention to the pill boxes.
From milliwatts to kilowatts its all cool to me .... but life is to short for QRP !!
