    The gain of the tube seems to be about 18 Db.

    The grid dissapation of the tube is only 1 watt which means, it has to be run class AB (with no grid current flowing).

    If there is an amp that uses them, I would expect "Legal Limit" out of one tube if, the amplifier is set up properly. This would be a delicate tube (RF wise) and, the in-experienced builder would be advised to pick a different tube to HB with.

    The 4CX600 is ULTRA LINEAR. As Paws stated, it's designed for AB1. It's akin to the 4CX1000 type tubes.

    For the price, I'd purchase 4-5 YC-156s, run them class A, and still have twice the output, more linearity, and be able to go to 10 KW +.

    And when a tube DOES go out, it only costs ya 4-600 bucks.
