      In SSB, for 1W PEP with a 2-tone audio in, you should get around 0.25W average power, no more. With normal voice (no compression), 100mW average power on peak is expected.

      Having more is a sign you're overdriving your transmit chain.

      With a single tone signal (PSK31, RTTY, WSPR) you can have up to 1W but the linearity of the SoftRock is not good. I always keep mine below 500mW with WSPR. Going to 1W (3dB) will not bring you more spots and could degrage your signal to the point the result is worse...
