If you got it for a good deal, then you have done OK. This is the
commercial copy of the Ultimate Transmatch. I built one years ago in an old
SB200 cabinet that I still use today. Works great and will match just about
anything with 1500 watts. If I rememeber correctly, the spacing on the caps
might be a little close. I remember that some of them arced from time to
time with odd-ball loads on them. I used Millen monster caps in mine and it
has never arced. I changed the configuration from an Ultimate Transmatch to
an SPC type. Worked better to tune in on 160.
You done good. Use it for awhile.... If you don't like it..take it to
Dayton or better yet...call me.
