Default Advantages of FFS2 for /home on OpenBSD


As i want to switch my desktop pc to openbsd soon, i have some questions regarding ffs2. The FAQ says, that ffs2 will be chosen automatically if the slice is bigger than 1TiB. All the 'standard' slices like /, /usr, /var and /tmp are ffs by default, but for /home i wondered if there is a difference between ffs and ffs2. In my case, /home will only be around 800 GiB and it will used mostly for flacs (20-40 MiB each). Are there any advantages using ffs2? Should i tweak the standard parameters for fsize, bsize? And if i would use it, should i just do a
# newfs -O 2 sd0X
# reboot
after the installation completed? Thanks in advance!
