If your amp won't do 1 ohms you can wire groups of four in parallel for a 2 ohm load (each group) and wire those two groups in series for a single 4 ohm load.

If its 4 ohm stable then wire each pair in series(16ohm) then each of those two pairs parallel(8ohm), then parallel those two sets(4ohm).

8+8=16
8+8=16
8+8=16
8+8=16

16/2=8
16/2=8

8/2=4

Im very aware of that. This was posted before that thread. Tater posted the thread based on my question also. So its basically the same way in a sense.

If you ever need anything closed in the future, make sure you just tag it and note on it that you want it closed, that will draw our attention much faster.
