Yes, less ohms draws more power. There are several factors at play. Less sensitivity needs more power to achieve a given volume. So even a 4 Ohm low sens speaker would be OK for a small room, sitting closer to the speakers, or if one keeps the volume levels at a lower level. 6 Ohm is within the operating specs for avarage distances and rooms and can play pretty loud.
More importantly, right now it sounds great and is about as loud as you like, right? You have a good match in pricing, quality and specs. If upgrading to the more expensive speakers, you will hear more detail and it will play much
louder with ease. But to get the full SQ out of those Grands, you would actually best match them with a higher level AVR like a 3311.
