Well I'm not so excited by the 22" wheels as I am the connex radio. Functionality over looks is my motto.

20,000's WOW what do you have to get to them for voltage and amps? My guess 4800 volts at 4 amps for both of them? How far off am I?

there is a pic of the cabinet that powers these type of amps ..i posted it a few times..

run 7 270amp AC alternators at about 20VAC into (7) 1 amp transfomers (about the size of a shoe box each) that take 15 to 24VAC Primary to 6000 volts Sec..run that voltage into diodes then doubling storing capacitors ..overvolting the tubes just a little...That will power the RF output then to light the filimant we use a 250amp DC alternator run into a REDI-Line motor inverter to power a 120VAC Primary Transformer to 7VAC SEC....
