The TS-2000 will, and does. The TS2000 can run 25Watts of AM all day. 
Assuming the 2 3-500Z's will run 1.5KPEP and 375W of carrier and has 
13dB gain, then all you need is 18.75W. More typical would be to run 
the 2x3-500Z's at 1KW PEP, 250W of carrier and TS-2000 around 12.5W.

BTW: The TS-2000 fan does blow across the heatsink. FYI The TS930 has 
2 fans, one for the power supply and one for the finals.
