 No I havent but such system I'm sure can be
arranged(the coil itself must than have significant
self capacity by itself).Consider for example Tesla's
CS extra coil system with 18' sphere with wire
adjanced.What do you think Max voltage Tesla could
developed in that case?...If that make you easier you
can imagine that sphere is smooth everywhere but
sparking beggins in the black box..
