I have run my 10000Q to the VPL lights coming on during some heavy bass music and I did it for at least 1/2 hour.
The amp doesn't get all that warm and am impressed to.
If I may suggest...you should try running your amp in bridge mode...I now run my 10000Q in bridge mode and am completely impressed how much more I can crank the volume in bridge mode vs 4 channel mode.
I cannot get the clip lights to come on...I have put my receivers volume level to -4 and have never gone so high in my life...ever. (It's a HK 7550HD)
I'm running 4x FTW21's connected to 8ohm load. I'm amazed at how much this 10000Q has.
Try it...I think you'll be impressed.
Yesterday, I had a friend over and we watched Prometheus (In 3D) at volume -12...All I can say is I can't wait to watch the movie again.
When the spaceship leaves...OMFG!!!
My friend is in complete AWE! I'm sure you understand!
Unbelievable amount of bass...
I will be watching Battleship tonight with my son and can't wait as I heard good things regarding ULF on that movie!
My poor house!!!
In case you need to know how it's connected...the positive of the speaker wire goes to +1 on channel1 and the negative wire goes to -2 on channel 1.
The same for the other channel which would be connected to channel3.
Push the 1+3 switch on and the bride mode switches on.
After everything I have tried I believe this amp is most comfortable running in bridge mode but have 0 idea why technically...sorry
