There's no "better" ohm. It's a matter of what your amps do at what resistance in terms of power.

They should read .5 ohm series/parallel before rise. My BTL's did and my Q's do.

From what I've learned Fi has the dual 1's at .7 or are meant to. Most ohm loads are rounded up or down to the whole number if I remember right.

If your amp won't go into protect after you hook them up. You'll be fine as soon as rise comes in.
