You do realize that the wire in your speaker coil is a lot thinner than the factory gauge wiring, right?

I've been pushing 250w/channel on factory wiring into 4ohm speakers for several years now w/o any issues...

The problem with dropping your amp down to 2ohm loads is that you'll have a bit more distortion, and the amp will run a lot warmer also.
That's probably what is up with that 0.3% THD... I bet that's the 2ohm rating... You can find lots of amps out there with 0.004 or lower THD at 4ohm...
