    Anyone know about the tiger 200 linears ? I have one and it seems to talk best on medium side. Low and high talks ok, but best on medium. Reckon why that is ? Thanks KW

    What radio you driving it with and what mods if any have been done to the radio. What's the dead key set at?

    Dead key should still be stock at around 3 I would assume.

    Anyone who sells CB linears has a dilemma to deal with.

    The wattmeter reading is what sells the linear.

    Trouble is, maxing the wattmeter reading typically destroys the audio quality.

    Your amplifier is not the only one that sounds best when you turn it down below the max setting.

    Then again if you used a radio that has only half the power of the one you're using now, the high side might sound better.

    If your going to run an amplifier you need to pay close attention to your dead key and peak swing watts. Chances are you need to have the radio tuned to match up better to that amp. Your probably over driving it with too much input dead key.
