SLO is 2.2k, I'm using 1.7@520V. 1.4 is interesting, I think that's actually only the half winding impedance so it's actually 2.8k. What is the b+?

Its possible he's wrong with that, he was trying to remember off top of his head.

Nah Epic Amps. He had a huge list of purchasable mods for jet city amps and also sold a few of his own.
He's on a hiatus at the moment. It was consuming him
