AFAIK, the Grenville and Punt Rs Sub was the 1st
Diode sub in Melb.

There are storys of the German test engineer saying,"More Amps
Ve want more amps" as it was being tested.and then other local
subs were cut out to provide more amps!!

And so the demise of Rotarys and Mercury Arcs started.
To a bloke who loves the traditional equipment, this was sad,

Cheers, Mick.
