    Easy. Just follow the specifications for the deck feeding the speakers.

    For example, if 4 ohm speakers are used, then connecting them in parallel (speaker + to speaker + and speaker - to speaker - ) will create a 2 ohm load for the deck or the amplifier driving the speakers.

    The amp will be working LOTS harder driving a 2 ohm load than a 4 ohm load. When I was setting up my system the amp fan kicked on immediately when driving 2 ohms and not at all when driving 4 ohms. Both are within spec for the amp.

    Eight total is fine, as long as the specs are followed. What head unit and what speakers?
