I had a RoadPro years ago, nice little low powered radio. As I recall it did 14 watts PEP. What kind of 4 pill amplifier do you have that gets 600 honest watts with that low of drive?

None that I know of. My class C and B amps might bump 300 watts peak with that low a drive. A TS 500 having the snot driven out of it might do 525 watts peak.

600 watts on a Dosy is roughly 300 watts on a Bird....in other words, you are cooking with gas.

I was thinking about a little further along down the manufacturing line specifically the part involving bovines and from where they emit it from.
