Default Zen V4 AND 16 ohm speakers

I just received my Q Pack and boards last weeek for the Pearl and P. Zen. This is great.
My speakers use 15 ohm Lowther drivers and I am planning on making couple of changes to reflect these conditions.
1. Drop the current to 1 amp with a 0.67 ohm resistor.
2. Only use one power transformer because of the lower power demand.
3. May try using a smaller output coupling cap. Thinking of 4700, or some other value.
4. Reduced power output is not a problem, 3 watts is plenty for my system.
Are there any other parts values that could be changed to help the amp work better into a high impedance and low power application?

Please keep us updated on how things turn out for you. This sounds really interesting. Please also post your evaluation of the Zen 4 and Lowther combination
