Default F3 With 16 ohm Speakers?

Was wondering how the F3 would do with 16 ohm speakers. The First Watt owners nual shows 15 watts at 8 ohms. How many watts at 16?

The speakers have no crossover so no problem there. Is 16 ohms ok otherwise?

Output Power into 16 ohms is 10 watts @ 0.1% THD, 1 KHz
There is even a nice graph on the last page of the F3 owner's manual.

best regards,

If you're speakers are also nicely efficient, it's a perfect match!
