QSC rates the amp to do 2100 into 8R bridged.... but even if it does 1800 watts... still lots of juice. I can trip the breaker in about 8 seconds flat with program material such as Disturbed. No maladities such as what Kevin posted above, and I did a "mini" marathon fest cranking tunes at clipping levels for about 7 hours.
The box was hot ( yes! ), the surround hot, the basket hot, and when I flopped the box on it's back, I threw a wet cloth on the cone with an icepack. 8 machine screws later I was lifting the 3000 out of the box.... motor was damn hot, probably 250+ F. I detatched the top assy with an allen key and threw the motor out on the concrete steps to cool. ( hey it was about -26C or so )
Some extra epoxy on the long former got burned off, but no problem with the coil at all.
