Anybody ever put 1000w+ to a Morel SC10?

Before I get the lecture about how it's only rated for 600W, I already know that. I obviously need to be careful with the gain but amp headroom is always a good thing in my experience. I've run other subs at more than 2x their RMS rating before with no problems. I'm just curious if anyone has actually tried it on this particular sub.

I'm in the process of upgrading my amps and once complete, I will have 1150W on tap for the sub. I will also be increasing the power to the rest of the system to 260W for each underseat woofer, 160W to the front door kids and 60W to the tweeters. I will also be replacing the DSP functions which are currently part of my Zapco DC amps with an external DSP.

Sounds like some serious bridging going on! I would think that would sound pretty good, lots of headroom and low distortion quality signal going to the speakers. I plan on doing something similar but with no trunk sub. 200W to each 8" ssmb unerseat, 150W to each morel mid/tweeter combo and 160W to my xtant center coaxial.

I got a kick out of your typos, 'underwear woofers' and front door 'kids'.

Corrected. Damn Apple autocorrect!
