Greetings to all,

        The real important difference between the 1000 an the 1500 (other 
than price) is  the grid dissipation rating.  The 4CX-1000 has something 
like .1 watt grid dissipation rating while the 4CX-1500 has a 1 watt rating. 
You ask what difference that small  increase could possible make?  Don't get 
hung up on the actual numbers.  That is an increase of 10 times and allows, 
as Collins put it long ago, a bit of grid current to flow without damaging 
the tube.
