Hmm, that's exactly what I thought the 4 ohm setting would do. The reason I chose 4 ohms was to reduce the possibility of amplifier overload. I realize that this would result in a reduction in output power but my primary concern was to avoid over loading the output stages causing a potential amp failure which could quite possibly damage my woofers via a DC current from a blown power transistor. Man that was a long sentence wink
