impedance question

Hey all,
this is probably a noob question, but what exactly is the effect of using 6 ohm tweeters with a 4 ohm stable amp?
i think i have a fairly good understanding of ohm's law, but i dont know what it will SOUND like.

can anyone tell me if it will be louder or quieter than using the same tweeters in a 4 ohm load?

All things being equal, there will be less output. It won't effect SQ noticeably.

hmmm, so instead of setting my crossovers at -2 or -4 i could probably go -0db and come out smelling good aye?

Thumbs up

Depending on the efficiency of the tweeter, you may not need to do anything. Hook 'em up, and let your ears be the judge....
