I'm looking at building the HiVi Juniors project by Zaph. However, I'd like it to be an MTM setup. My question is, if I add another woofer in parallel with the first, I will get an R(eq) of 3.2 ohms. If I add a 3.1 ohm resistor in series to this to bring it back to 6.2, will I need to attenuate the tweeter by -3dB?

I don't know Zaph, but adding a resistor in series with any speaker is a bad idea. It will reduce the damping factor of the amplifier (the amp's ability to control the speaker). E
