Description:
The AC split was easy at low power. The A component was a nice blue, C was too faint to tell. AB proved much tougher. At low power there might have been a bump; at mid power there was a definate mis-shape here, however at high power I never really got a clean split, but occasionally I thought I could glimpse the C.
