Yes if it can do 10A with 4R load then it will be able to do the same current with heavier load.
But bear in mind that keeping current the same and halving load impedance means that the output power is also halved, just that the required voltage swing is reduced to 0.707x that of the lighter load.
So if voltage swing is to be maintained the supply must be capable of supplying double the current when confronted with half the load impedance.
If it can do this then the output power will also double.
Also to take into account is to what extent can big load increases can be tolerated and how long the power supply can sustain increased demands, which is what your proposed peak current capacity is all about.
But it can be confusing as a big peak capacity does not guarantee a decent steady-state capacity.
Thank you very much indeed again Sir.

Maybe you can think that I am quite obsessed by this thing of the current available from an amp, but my very limited and humble experience tells me that the final sound, when the speakers are driven by a so-called high current amp, has a remarkable authority. Very very nice indeed.

Thank you very much again.
Kind regards,

beppe

No problem Beppe. There is nothing wrong in doing research to verify your own experiences.

In fact, although some people have told you to change drive unit in your speakers, the fact that you have achieved your perfect sound with these speakers when used with a specific amp says to me that you do not need to touch your speakers. Rather you are correct in your quest to search for the right amp.

Dear Sir,
I would like to thank you for the umpteenth time for your generous, friendly and extremely valuable advice.
Kind regards,

beppe
