When I dinked with the 590 a bit to see what it did, it has the version 1.07 software load and using the ATR-30 Peak/Average meter (which to me doesn't have the best resolution), it appears to me when you run full barefoot power, the radio spikes around 120 watts or so.

Interconnected to an ACOM 1000 amp, not with that drive of course, it spikes the amp output anywhere from 200-300 watts or so, before coming back to the actual output it should have (still measuring it).  The ACOM supposedly can take a 100mS overshoot power condition which I assume this is well within.  Don't think the power overshoot is anywhere in that region.

So, not sure if this is a problem or not with the ACOM amp, but may be with a solid state amp.
