As an aside, do you know if this unit has automatic SSB switching, since there is no external switch for SSB? Have not been able to track down the answer to that.
You'll have to defeat the the voltage regulator but you might want to check all components to see if they're rated for more than 13.8 volts/
How many watts of distortion did your wattmeter start swinging after the 2879s where put in it?
4 2879s need 80 amps PEAK. Hard to get that out of a 35 amp supply. And Toshiba rates them 4 'pills' at uh needin 100 (that's a hunnerd) amps.
Can't answer your first question, since the 2879s were put in before I got the amp. As for the second point, I can tell you only that I was using a Galaxy99V to test the amp. RF power was set for a 4 watt deadkey, and at that setting, the radio outputs about 38 watts. Using the amp, PEP output was 475 watts. All wattage measured on a Daiwa CN-801 HP.
Obviously, I don't have the technical knowledge on amps or radios, but I am trying to learn. Appreciate your comments.
