Default Best speakers for F5

A buddy of mine wants to know: What are the best speakers for this amp.... are they quarter wave horns?

I am sure he'd appreciate any guidance you can offer.

I think the F5 does well into most speakers, but if they are bright or have
peaks on the top end, you'll hear it.

My F5 also works very well with 48" MLTL J92s.

Any speaker with good sensitivity (92dB or more), but you try before or avoid the brighter speakers (This amp have ultra clean and extended highs and this is a problem with a poorly designed speaker).

I'm using my F5 with a 96dB/1m DIY speakers

Wow I'm surprised it worked well through the maggies. I tried mine through a buddies maggy 1.6 and although detailed it really lacked the bass compared to.... threshold s150.
