No problem. Problems occur when you load an amp at a lower impedance, which is harder on an amp. For example, you don't want to connect a 4 ohm speaker to an amp designed for 8 ohm loads because it will run hot and may be damaged by the heat. Your amp can handle it, no problem, BUT (a catch), you won't be getting 60 watts from it. More like approx 40-45.

That's probably more accurate than my figure, which was a WAG. Would you mind sharing the make and model # of your amp? This is simply out of curiosity, because I've never seen an amp rated at 3 ohms. 1, 2 (car audio) 4 (car,reference) and 8 ohms - yes.
