One thing to consider is that most solid state amps have very sensitive VSWR protection circuits and will not produce the full output unless there is no reflected power power. I have found it necessary to ad an LDG AT-1000 Pro Auto Tuner so I do not have to keep resetting the VSWR overload circuit. In short Solid State Amps are very convenient and with switching supplies are relatively small. However none I have used so far will do their rated power under normal circumstances.
