    Ah ok. Not sure what $50 and $7500 refer to. 102” whip is not a short antenna. LOL Its a full quarter wave. Nice!!

    I am sure there is more you’re hiding! I love that amp just hanging on the hook chilling. So nonchalant!!

    That’s pretty much it. The cobra has big finals in it tuned to 50 watt the only problem running that much power in the truck is you hear everyone everywhere I broke my mount with a low tree earlier so I threw my trusty lil Wilson base loaded magnet mount on. Can’t really get much skip with it can’t turn the kicker on

    I hate to break it to you but that amp pictured most likely has two motorola mrf 455a stud mount transistors in it.
    Couple versions, digital sports systems, cmi, all about the same.
    It's not going to get close to that kind of output by any means.
    If you pull the cover and take a picture of the board inside we can tell you the reasonable output of that amp.
