If the amp truly will put out 800W @ 50% efficiency it would take a minimum of 1600 W input 1600 / 12 =  ~133A @ 12 VDC.  The numbers given would indicate near 80% efficiency.

12 VDC @ 85A = 1020W which would give 400W out @ 50%  which is still quite respectable for a mobile.
BUT being that old, it probably uses bipolar transistors

I have a very rare Mirage/KLM 1.8-30MHz solid state mobile amp that is 100 watts in and 800 watts outs.  My understanding is very few were made, no manual on the internet and FCC made them stop making them because they will amplify "anywhere" between 1.8 and 30 MHz!  Is there a manual or such around on this amp? Understand it takes 85 amps to run this thing.  Any information on this amp would be greatly appreciated.
