Of course, y'all know that the legal limit is 1,500w PEP output.

That said, you could reverse the phase on the modulators, run the
carrier up ~650w or so watts and still only get 1,500w PEP output.

Even still, that's only ~3db stronger than a 350/375 carrier...  and the
audio wouldn't sound 'as loud', but the average hammy-type operator
probably couldn't tell the difference...
