|The 4CX3000A is designed to be used as a Class AB1 linear amplifier in audio or radio-frequency applications. Its characteristics of low intermodulation distortion make it especially suitable for single sideband service.
This tube is unique in that a production test is included to insure minimum distortion products. The 4CX3000A must produce a minimum of 5300 watts in Class AB1 service with 3rd order IM distortion at least 32 dB down, from one tone of two-tone signal.
The tube is also recommended for use as a class C radio-frequency power amplifier and plate-modulated, radio-frequency power amplifier.
