From the beginning of my ACA build, I planned to bridge two amps on each channel because I have 16 ohm speakers. As I tested each large heatsink with two amps as a stereo single-ended amp (not bridged), I found that they powered my 95 db sensitive speakers very well. Don't hesitate to listen to those nice 3 watts just because it doesn't seem like enough to work well. I really like the now-finished bridged amps, but it probably wasn't necessary to bridge them -- the difference is very subtle.

Thanks for chiming in. Big drop from 8 watts. Higher impedance is supposedly easier to drive. Does that mean better results in terms of sufficient power given the same wattage? ie, would 3 watts at 16 ohms seem like more power than 3 watts at 8 ohms given the same speakers?

Thanks again.

no apples and oranges ..... meaning - you can't find two speakers same in everything , except in impedance

even if you translate what's needed in db/W/m figures , there are few more factors in speakers world - most important being impedance module - in other words - how speaker is easy to drive

so , listening test is only way to compare things like that

I was meaning in theory anyway, to tease out the effect of impedance alone. But I've got the sense of it I need. Thanks to you both.
