400 watt linear amplifier - PCM death?

took the old amplifier and CB out of my 77 f150. its a 400 watt linear amplifier. Gramps said he could key it up in front of peoples houses and watch the tv go black, said never key it up around your buddies trucks cuz it can fry their radios, and apparently if you key it up around older volkswagens it will fry it completely

sooo could this cause any damage to the PCM? recommendations?

its awesome tho i could be way up the wynotchee somewhere and turn it on and talk to my grandpa in Elma like he was in the truck next to me
