But it seems to me that if my amps can drive the 2 ohm loads and there are fewer "out of phase" connections in the ribbons in particular, I really should have superior sound through more in phase generated sound an d the lower impedence giving me way more power.

The graph doesn't say Rich and I can't remember where I got it from, but I like to keep it around to show peopel that Impedance varies with frequency. I'll try and find where I originally got it from.

EDIT: This graph is for the Plats taken from a Stereophile Magazine review.

Just looking at that graph, then, it looks like the plats are nominal > 6Z.
It should sound like it isn't there!
