    Out of curiosity, are those two completely different Cobra 2000 rigs, or just two different photos of the same radio? I noticed that in the last photo, there's one Cobra 2000 radio but two Cobra 2000 speakers, so I know you've got at least two of those. :)

    Hey bigal... I see we have the same taste in meters and amplifiers!

    Thank You, and it has a lot of power to back it up.

    Cobra 2000

    I found two Cobra 2000 speakers on a web site for sale for 10.00 for both. I keep one and sold the other.

    Overall I'm happy with the K 500. With the Cobra 135 deadkeying about 4w I get about 130w dk and swing to about 275-300 if the matching kicker meter is to be believed.

    Most of the time I run the Swinger 205 in 'swing' mode which still gives me a 5w dk but about a 30w swing. Feeding this into the K500 provides about 150w dk with close to 500w swing, again assuming the meter is accurate. I detune the swinger just a bit because if I peak it then it's a 10w dk and a 60w swing which is more than I want to hit the K500 with.

    Been doing this for a while and so far no ill effects. Tubes are holding up well and everyone says I sound good.

    However I am a bit concerned because in the original Kicker instruction sheet (can't really call a single printed page a 'manual' now) it specifically says NOT to run a driver amp into the thing or the warranty would be void. Now, I'm not real concerned with voiding the warranty on a 40-year old piece of equipment but I figure that little message was put there for a reason.

    Do you know of any mods for this amp?

    Always liked them Motorola cb's. If they are anything like Motorola's professional radios they should last forever especially back when that one was made (70's) the solid weighted microphones etc.
