They're great amps. What kind of pill setup in that amp? What did you want to know about them?

Marketing literature is not always truthful. Toshiba's 2sc2879 transistors are rated at 100 watts PEP each. Two of them in parallel will produce 200 watts. Drive them any harder and they will blow out. That's the truth of it.

Tailgate, that's a good amp , I guess my first question is what radio are you running, You have stated that it has a 3 watt DK , what does the radio swing? Seems to me that would be a good amp for a dual final radio, like a General Lee or such.
