I use the actual CD for demo as its the loudest track from my CD collection which is quite small. About half way through the song it goes HOT
Another thing that could explain our different results could be actual power the amps are receiving. Idk if that could in any way cause our different results but just thinking out loud. I have an extremely large power meter, cable, wires, etc... And 220v. No idea but get same results across all 8 drivers and all 8 channels. Across the amp channels there is only a deviation of one click +\-
Humm I dunno, I've got 4 x fp14 clones 4 x 30A lines and the other 2 on 20A lines but they aren't running anything at this moment. Even at that, they should be putting out more power per channel than the 10Q.
I do love the fact that you are maxing out 8 FTW's LOL
I will try that too short song tonight. You should try out " scary xmas" by hedegaard. I can run that 10dB over reference no problems and its a woofer killer. I would tend to think our room sizes are the main difference
