Default opt impedance

a silly question from a newbie: which is better for an OPT's design - 3K or 5K? i dont know if i'm asking the right question so pardon me. i am asking a fellow diy hobbyist to make me a pair of OPTs for my 6V6 single ended triode strapped amp project.

5K for about 4W output in triode mode.

Happy building,

4W seems a bit optimistic when were talking triode mode.
Id say 1,5-2W

To maximize output go with 3K, although it will give for more distortion. 5K is for less power and less distortion.
