Well - wired as an 8 ohm load, I've had no issues at all with mine, and I get all the lights lit on my iNuke 3000 bridged into the one.
That was the day I was blowing out candles.
I am running a 48 dB/oct. 20 Hz highpass. Sure, I smell a bit of warm varnish from time to time, but I've run this one plenty hard with no drama. I don't gig with it though - it is in my home theater system.
For SPL - really - it is an easy answer. Regardless of the driver used, just build as many cabinets as you can afford to.
Since I can't really afford the elite drivers, my rule of thumb is that once past about 120 dB per cabinet, it is time to start thinking about adding another cabinet.
The Type S is only about 3 dB down from the Kicker at fill tilt, but there are options that may be even better than the Kicker driver.
I have CVXs already, and limited "fun" money, so I used the CVXs.
