.33 daily for a couple months....fine as long as you have the electrical.
The whole time I had it 2+ years it was pretty much ran at .5 daily

I tried to burp at .2 and it would go into protect, that's too low though for any amp I think

I've heard of people strapping sundowns at .35 for competition. I've had my 2500s strapped at 1ohm daily with no issues.
