Yesterday I have downloaded some file about the primary coil, I just want to
know if I understand the text below right.

As I understand it, Richard T. Quick is saying that the larger your primary
coil is the better sparks you will get, am I understanding it correctly?

What primary coil is best to use with my coil that works at 15 kVAC 30mA?
