Oh yeah!  I found that out real quick...and the biggest amp i have is a PL380...

Seeing the water heater element start glowing makes me wonder how voice coils hang in so well...
Also makes me realize how nuts it is to try to get that 'last 3dB' out of our subs...

"...the futility to try to get the 'last 3dB'.....

The question is "the last 3dB of linear output" (where a +3dB change in input voltage results in a +3dB increase in measured SPL) or "the last 3dB of power before the voice coils go all Joan of Arc."

Yep, better said....futility.
What's your 'futile point' ?....I'm down to 1 db compression, past that I'm feeling in 'nutsville'  :)
