can i run 4 speakers off a 2ch amp?

example:

amp:
100rms x 2 @ 2 ohms

can i wire my left speakers (a 6.5" round and a 6x9) in parallel so they produce a 2 ohm load and then wire that to one channel of an amp, and the same for the right speakers?

will all speakers then get 50watts?

i know if i do this, then i will lose fader control but i dont care about that. all i want to know if i can do this without any potential damages or risks.

Thank you.

just use the front 6.5 speakers off the amp, and you rear 6x9s off the deck, rear fill is really not needed.

Yes, you can wire them in parallel
all will get 50W
No damage will occur, unless you mess somethimg up

As was said, you can do it and nothing will be hurt. But, IMHO a better option would be to run your fronts off the amp and the rears off the HU's internal amp.

and another question... is it okay to keep the stock 6x9s in the back?

i dont really care about that cuz liek i never sit back there, and the sound comin from there isnt really a big deal to me in the front.

^well as u and others just mentioned, rear fill isnt that big of a deal. And if ur running it off the deck u would probably give them 20 - 30 watts max. Im sure stocks can take that.

Or if you dont care about rear fill at all send them to the socket for some fun :)
