Re: SSTC does 10 foot sparks

With these new high power coils, you are apt to kill IGBTs regardless of the
learning process.
Its part of the game altogether.

 >From my experience I have to say these ISSTCs are just as loud as their SG

Also, most of the sound from a SG tesla coil DOES NOT come from the spark
