I have to agree with Gary.   You're seeing 1600 watts PEP and 400W of carrier 
OUT with a pair of GG 813s???   Does not compute!   Just curious, are you 
talking about 400W INPUT power to the linear under carrier only condx maybe?   If 
so, this would work out to about 133W carrier OUT and each 813 dissipating 
about 133W which would make more sense.
