i noticed that swr can go up quite a bit when hooking up a linear amp , so keep an eye in it,, also i bought a kpo 45 amp power supply with amp and volt readout, with a rm kl400 amp i measured a pull of between 10 and 20 amps,

depending what extras i am running from the auxillarys ,
the DJ (discjokey)
if i can help ,i will.

Depends how well the swr was set at low power. The closer to 1:1 at low power it is the less it will rise with more power.

Can I just say, that if you look at the post at the top of the page that you are all replying to, it is March 2008, not March 2009.
