    How would you wire 6 speakers in stereo to a 4 channel amp?

    Trying to wire the tower speakers on my boat into a 4-channel amp.... Previously I only had 4 speakers and I was running them at 2-ohms in bridged stereo mode... Now I'm upgrading to 6 and I don't think my amp is going to be overjoyed to be running at 1.33ohms, right??

    Help!

    What ohm load are the speakers? If they're all 4 ohm, you can run the front channels to 2 speakers @ 4ohm and run the rear channels to the remaining 4 speakers @ 2 ohms

    My system:
    Sounds good.

    Hah! They are all 4 ohm speakers.... Since all 6 are going to be in one location is it important that they all get the same amount of power or is that not going to be an issue?
