    kicker zx850.4 and 8 speakers?

    would this work? im planning on putting seleniums in each door a 6 and an 8. i planned on running them all off a kicker 850.4 for now until i can get the sundown amp i want. what my plan is... active crossover from clif designs followed by the amp. running amp 1 for the 8in and amp 2 for the 6in. i would be wiring the 8's and 6's down to 4 ohms. i know if would be underpowering the 8in speakers but for now not bad? right?

    u can run 9834872435789 speakers on any amp, as long as the impedance is something the amp supports. u can drop it to 2 ohm per channel on that kicker amp and be fine, reguardless of the number of speakers you have.

    im running 8 selenium 6s off a sundown 100.2 (16 total, 2 100.2s)

    and 16 tweets off a single 100.4

    the whole shop seems to be not the most educated people, know that you could easly run that amp at 2 ohms.
