Default Alpair 6p FAST

How may watts will the Alpair 6p handle in a 280Hz 1st Order FAST?

I understand a lot of it will deal with excursion.
With a 1.7L sealed chamber behind them there will be minimal excursion and about a 2nd order acoustic roll off.
This should give me about -16db at resonant frequency.
My main concern here will be the voice coil power handling with the low frequencies virtually gone.

Do you have a driver in mind for the bottom end? I'm interested in this as well. I'll be using the Dayton RS210HF to go with my Milli boxes but wondered if i might at some point try a FAST with them. Or, Peerless 8/10"?

I'm thinking about an RSS265 sidefiring or a pair of DA175's front firing.
