Yep, this is about what I see with mine too.  I can see it being an issue
using an amplifier like a pair of 3-500Zs where 100w out is required to
reach (or not) 1500w out.  But most common day amplifiers do not require
100w of drive for 1500w out.  My AL1500s only need about 50w or less of
drive, so inserting the filters has never been an issue.

As far as Dunestar...  I can't say enough good things about this
company.  Best customer service I have had in ham radio.  They get a 10+
from me.
