Default anybody facing stability problems with LM3886 BA100 with 8 ohm subwoofer?

If I use a 10 inchwoofer with 8 ohms of impedance with two chips of LM3886 in BA100 mode then does the amps get too hot? any stability problems with the chips for driving the woofer soo hard..?

In Bridged mode there shouldn"t be any stability problems as long as you are useing a Low enough Voltage.....With an 8 Ohm speaker in Bridged mode each Chip is driveing a 4 ohm load so the Supply Voltage should be kept under +/-30v and a Big heatsink will also be good.....

I am building a Bass amp useing 2 LM3886 in Bridged mode with an Opamp inverter and a Huge heatsink running off of +/-26v rails and I am powering a 12 in Sub and a 10in Driver, I am also useing a 15 Band EQ I scavenged from a Busted Rane EQ for the Tone controlls....It is still a work in progress.....
