"Not myth. Fact. Put the driver in what we recommend and see how much power you can run on it before it reaches Xmax limits. Power handling is not only by Xmax limits. You can thermal a coil without it getting anywhere near Xmax limits with enough power. Again, for what our customers do to our subwoofers we have our recommended enclosures. And again, you can do whatever you want to. Our warranty extends to rated power and covers manufacturers defects, not abuse and/or large enclosures. I know many people (some are friends of mine) who run MUCH larger enclosures than what we recommend with very good results. They also know that if they cook the woofer it is their fault and not under warranty."
since you have now said it a couple different ways, i will assume that it is your position that one is more likely to burn up a voice coil in a large enclosure than in a small one.
how is that possible when the large enclosure requires less power for any given spl and a large enclosure allows for greater cone motion which provides greater cooling for any amount of input power?
the ultimate expression of a large enclosure is an infinite baffle. people don't cook coils in those they damage them from over excursion.
people cook coils in small enclosures with a crap ton of power trying to get loud.
