    Not a damn thing. I believe "Modulator" is just a term that someone came up with to alternatively describe an amp.

    years ago , the locals where I lived referred to their small driver tube amps like JB12's etc. as their "modulators" that Modulated their bigger amps

    Modulators swing alot and seem to increase audio volume.
    Like dead key 10 and swing to 200w etc.

    A JB12 is a modulator. Alot of people used JB12s to drive Thunderbolt 305s years ago.

    Theyre swing boxes.

    A Modulator is just a small class c amp.
    Its just like any other amp.....don't saturate it with too much carrier ....drive in an overmodulated signal....and you will get high peak power out.
