Going through the CPII datasheet for the 3CPX800 we see max plate voltage of 4500V so the tubes will handle the voltage. The tube still has the dainty 4W max dissipation grid so if you hit it with 3600V and 100W you'll probably roast the tubes.

The non-pulse rated 3cx800 max ratings are 2250V plate voltage, 0.6 plate amps. Typical operation at 2200V and 0.5A with 23W of drive will get you 750W AB2 output.

Command Technologies used to build a three hole 3cx800 amp for "export only".

Trying to get a fairly accurate estimate on what the output would be from a
amp with...
3600 plate volts
3  - 3cxp800
100 watts drive

can anyone help with the formula.
