Ultimate T3-1000D at 1ohm???

I have this amp and curently run it at 4 ohm resistance.( two Audiobahns aw1206 2*4ohm coils each sub )

Is it safe to run this amp at 1 ohm at least for db drag???

Please tell me your opinions...Thank you!

this amp is NOT 1ohm stable, or even capable! I tried to run it at 1.4ohms and it shuts down very quickly! Sucks *** I know

Why does the online pdf wiring diagrams show a sample system that puts a 1.5ohm load on the amp even though it is only 2ohm stable?

Why do manufacturers put wildly exaggerated claims on equipment? People beleive what they read, that's why.

I could understand that, but they don't give a power rating for 1.5ohm, they just show a wiring diagram that puts a 1.5 ohm load on the amp. All their power charts are only down to 2ohm. I doubt it would be in the manufactures best intrest for people to place an unsafe load on their amp, yet they diagram it for the user. Strange.

Cause it will run 1.5ohms and no lower. We put 2 3ohm drivers on them all the time paralleled and runs fine. Anything lower and it shuts down.

I've been running these amps since they came out and SQ is not the T3-1000's strong suit.
The T3-500's aren't the power houses the 1000's are but sound much better in my opinion.
I've owned three 1000's and 2 500's. I also have two 500's on the way from our buddy smartass.
I like them and would recommend them to those who intend to run them 2ohm.

What everyone seems to be missing is the T3-4075 which is by far the jewel in Ultimates crown.
