    I asked the same question about lowering ohm loads on an amp below recommended impedance, and it sounded great voltage was stable 13.6v-12.0 at full tilt and did great for a week.............so I was a little shocked when the fire started! and now I have an awesome new paper weight!

    That is NOT stable voltage, especially dropping to 12.0.

    OP you might need a little more batt power, depending upon how long/loud you play it...
