    Erm, well you actually just wire them together in series, which would give you a 2 ohm load, but then you're only getting 1000 watts, or much less according to some people,

    putting them all in series would give you an 8 ohm load, he had it right the first time. i don't know how stable the amp is but if you wire them all in parallel you'd get .5ohm. i'd probably take my chances.

    This is how you do it....it will give you a 2 ohm load.
