    Default Wiring 8 MMC650's to a 4 channel amp

    What would be the correct way, to hook up 4 pairs of Polk MMC650's to a 4 ch amp? Thanks!

    2-8 ohm speakers in series is 16 ohms.
    2-8 ohm speakers in parrell is 4 ohms.
    So on and So on. You have to know what your amp is capable of driving.
    If you did 2 pairs of 2 in series then put the series pair in parrell you have 8 ohms.

    This might confuse,

    If the amp can handle a 2 ohm load per channel, I'd simply run 2 speakers in parallel on each channel.

    you can run 4 - 8 ohm speakers in parallel = 2 ohms
    you can run 2 - 8 ohm speakers in parallel = 4 ohms
    you can run 2 - 4 ohm speakers in parallel = 2 ohms
