    Don't worry about ohms, as the actual value seen by the speaker is continuously variable based on frequency.

    Do you know of any speakers that are specifically designed as nominal 6ohm? I don't remember hearing of any.

    The Phase Tech PC-1 I have is a 6 ohm rated speaker. Have no clue why as it works well with my other 8 ohm phase techs. Goofy.

    Many MB Quart home speakers are 6 ohm. In their case it seems the more large drivers the model has (like dual 6.5s) the lower the impedence (down to 4 ohm). I don't know why this is versus their two way sets.

    I gave my son 3 RVS Energy speakers which are all 6 ohm running on a 1105 Yamaha. No probs.
