I'm pretty certain the Lightstar Reference can drive lower than 1 ohm loads.

300W into 8 ohms (24.8dBW), 600W into 4 ohms (24.8dBW), 1200W into 2 ohms (24 8dBW)

Toymaker uses 1 of his to drive his Amazing Mk Vs with the 1 ohm ribbons, so ask him about it!
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.
