4 ohm or 6 ohm

I have an Onkyo TX-SR806 receiver that has both the 4 ohm and 6 ohm settings.  My Polk speakers all are 4 ohm speakers.  I have read all over the place that say set it to 6, but this seems wrong to me.  Should I set my receiver to 4 ohms?

    Hi Jeff,

    This is another confusing setting that makes no audible difference.  I wouldn't sweat it.  Go ahead and set it to match your speakers.  I really wish that AVR makers would remove these useless settings so that people could set up their systems with less hassle and get to enjoying the content!
