    I hope this doesn't sound stupid but I have a pair Ohm Walsh 4 speakers rated at 6 ohms.
    Back of the Spec 2 has a switch 4 or 8 ohms. So is it ok to drive the Spec 2 at 6 ohms?
    If so should I set the amps load switch at 4 or 8 or find a different amp to drive these speakers.
    Thanks

    Set it to 8 ohms, it will be just fine. The 4 ohm setting just limits the amount of power output available so you don't blow the amp up when driving low impedance loads at high volume.
