    okay for the jbl front speakers in my sig im wanting to amp them with a cheap local amp and the speakers are 4 ohm so would i have to wire them into the amp just at 4 ohm or could they be wired at 2 ohm

    If the driver is 4ohm, the only way to get a 2ohm load is to wire two of them in parallel.
