I might be interested in those 16 ohm JBLs. My current speakers are running 16 ohms with a pair of modded Heathkit W5M's with no strain at all. The trannys have 4-8 & 16 ohm taps. They output 25 strong tube watts. I rarely reach 12 o'clock on my AVA T7 pre.
What would I gain other than higher efficiency by running the JBL in series? Space, cabinet size, isn't a limiting factor for me but I don't regularly play at high volumes. As they say, there's no substitute for displacement. Would I get lower distortion, a greater sense of musical texture or what?
