Equal power output, # of pills and amp draw question.
Has anyone tested this?
For example, go for a fixed deadkey output of 200 watts. Drive the amp to what ever it takes to get that power. Do this for a 2 pill, 4 pill and an 8 pill and see how much more current is needed for the larger amp.
The assumption is that the larger amp, for example a 2x8 will need more amps to do 200 watts, versus say a 1x4, all else being equal.
What good is this test? To find the sweet spot in current draw efficiency. I've noticed running a bigger amp and cruising it has a much more cleaner output than driving the piss out of a smaller amp. The may be a similar thing. Results may be interesting.
I see the natural tendancy is to get the most out of your amp. "Man, I'm getting 1100 bird out of my 8 pill" etc. versus crusing a 16 pill at 750 bird but not even heatin up the box. Putting out clean, linear output that is really in true range of the 2sc2879's spec before major harmonics kick in.
I don't know, just things to think about.
