    5 channel amp and 6 speakers plus sub?

    Ok, so I have the following:

    Infinity Kappa Five Amp
    Kappa 693.9i 6x9 Speaker Pair (2ohm impedance)
    Kappa 462.9cfp 4x6 Pair (2ohm impedance)
    Kappa 6-1/2" 3-way Speaker Pair (2ohm impedance)

    Right now I basically have the amp in a standard 5 channel operation:

    Two 6x9 speakers are connected to rear amp channel, sub is connected to sub channel, and the 6x9 are connected to front channel.

    Can I safely connect the two 4x6 speakers to the same channel my 6 1/2 are connected to at the same time?

    I found this in my amp manual-
    Minimum speaker impedance for stereo operation is
    2 ohms. Minimum speaker impedance for bridged
    operation is 4 ohms. Minimum subwoofer impedance
    is 2 ohms.

    So if I connect the 4x6 in series it would equal 4 ohms I believe or would I need to connect them in parallel? I think I can just connect them in a series, I just would like to verify that is Ok before I do anything.

    Thank you!

    These speakers are installed in a 2002 Chevy Blazer, all factory locations.

    Yes, in series you would have a 4 ohm load.
