    That would work well, wire two in parallel on each channel.

    This is your best option. Or just wire all 4 to a 4ohm load and bridge the amp...same principle, but could make amp tuning easier being in mono mode.

    Also a good option if you feel like really pushing the little buggers.

    True,.......................... was just trying to keep the wiring connections as simple as possible.

    Cannot believe you suggested this. I'm hoping you were going for the lulz since not only would the amplifier be seeing 1ohm per channel, the fifth driver wouldn't be stroking the same distance as the others, lol.

    In bridge mode with a 4ohm load, the amplifier sees 2ohms per channel, but with the addition of another 2ohms per channel due to the 2 sets of drivers wired to 2ohms, the amp sees 1ohm per channel. Death for the amplifier.

    You trollin'.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    Yeah, four would be the best bet.

    Is the Zapco still a looker?
