I've finally "finished" my system and am enjoying surround sound for the first time. Totally Awesome! While setting it up I found that I can choose the speaker impedence settings on my receiver. My speakers will operate at all the different choices (4, 6 & 8 ohms). Receiver power is only 50w/channel which is plenty for my enviroment but I was wondering what would be the "optimal" impedence setting?

Check the impedance of your speakers and set that same value in your receiver, avoid selecting impedance levels higher than your speaker¡¯s impedance or you may fry the amp in your receiver. To get the optimal impedance setting look for the THD value in your receiver¡¯s specifications page, it must say the impedance value that was used for the measure, if your speakers are not that same impedance (Its generally 8¦¸ or 6 ¦¸) maybe you can upgrade them later.

I’m not sure what’s the difference between 6 Ω and 8 Ω but surely someone here can tell.
