    Impedance Curve, what's it do for sound quality?

    Hi,.....Damping factor only becomes a concern when it is low enough to affect the speakers frequency response enough to be audible. The lower the damping factor, the more the amps output voltage amplitude will follow (mimic) the speakers impedance curve, even though it is being fed with a flat frequency response input signal.With properly chosen amplifiers and cables, any advantage gained by using a higher impedance load becomes too small to be detected by the human ear. However, when paralleling speakers, the benefits of the extra available output power (+6 dB) are immediately obvious. This makes it a worthwhile choice as long as care is taken to chose the right equipment. stereo2.0 is offline
