Question regarding impedance settings. Assuming the nominal impedance of the Triton ones is 8 ohms(but can drop down to 4 ohms), I'm wondering what impedance tap is best suitable. My Integra DTA -70.1 amp has an impedance switch 4-6 ohm range and 6-16 ohm range. Given that the lower tap (4-6 ohms) may provide slightly better damping factor would this be more suitable? Or will the higher impedance provide a more linear response. I'm not worried about dynamic range as I seem to have more power than I would ever need with these efficient speakers. As well, will there be a difference in tonal quality?

We would suggest the 4-6 ohm position, but listen to both and choose which sounds better to your ears. If you can't hear a difference, use the 4-6 ohm position.

Yes tried both. You were right. The lower impedance setting is slightly better. A slightly richer, fuller sound.
Thanks!
