    Howdy folks:hiya:,
    just a quick question, I'm in the process of setting up my new amp, Yamaha AX763, and my speakers, (Mordaunt Short 916,905,903) have an impedance of 4-8 ohms so what should I set the amps impedance to? leave it on 8 (default) or change it to 6:confused:

    just to need to know I'm not about to knacker the Amp/speakers.
    Cheers

    Cheers bud, after searching fruitlessly on the amplifier forum I plumbed the depths of the speaker forum and 6 ohms seems to be the concesus of opinion.
