Time to update the simulated speaker load?

Hello Editors,

This has come up a few times in conversations and I thought of something:

The typical speaker today has a lower impedance in the mid-bass than a few decades ago. Maybe it's time to update the simulated speaker load, using a lower Re for the woofer.

For instance:

I think that, with the drop to ~ 3 Ohms on the mid-bass is probably a better exemplar of audiophile speaker impedance today.

Best,

Erik
