    Put this tube in your amp

    Tube from an old RF amplifier for an MRI. Guys used to take the amps apart and use them to power PA systems

    That's a doozy. I used to think the output tubes from the 1000 watt station I started my radio career in were big, but that MRI unit's as big as I've seen.
