You can't factor impeadance rise in a daily application, as music is transient. So you may have "x" rise at tuning but above and below will be much less.

The only time you really use impeadance rise as a factor is for burping. When your playing one tone at resonance.
Run the amp at 1ohm.

I think it's probably because that sub is not moving enough to allow it to cool.. Id turn the gain up a bit so it moves more for cooling reasons.. That's why it's hard on subs to be underpowered..
