Ya I figure that’s the safest way, but I also am convincing myself I can show restraint at 1875 haha.
If you plan on showing restraint, then you won't really use the whole 1,875 watts, right? It's less than a 3dB difference between 1,000 and 1,875 watts, so I'd stick with 4 ohms. Plus, like Jroo said, I can't imagine wanting more than 1,000 watts for music. I've got 500 watts on a single 10" and have it throttled down. Even for bass heavy music, if I used all 500 watts, the response would be way too unbalanced and bass heavy.

I got my 600 watt rms sub up to about 700 watts today just before it bottomed out (12mm xmax one way) and my whole car was vibrating apart and thats in a sealed box! I have a 1200 watt amp but I dont normally use more than a few hundred watts except when im really cranking it with the bass knob to 100%
How do you know you were at 700 watts?
