Yeah not bad...... hee hee
But I could have had 2 sealed Avel-Lindberg for even cheaper than that.... so I was tempted.

I didn't see the issue when used in perfectly parallel channels in CLass A, but I guess the argument about caps tolerence has finished convincing me

no it will not. the amp rating remains the same.

True. And this is because the amp rating is driven by wire gauge.
You still get the same "rating" for the core though... so it's like an oversized core....
