    Default Need a little help wiring speakers to amps...

    So I finally gathered all the amps and speakers I am going to use.

    I have two exile sx65Q surf speakers
    Rated at 125W RMS/250W Max 4 ohms

    I have four exile sx65m cabin speakers
    Rated at 100W RMS/250W Max 4 ohms

    I have a Kicker 450.2 amp
    4 ohms: 150 watts x 2 chan.
    2 ohms: 225 watts x 2 chan.
    Bridged, 4 ohms: 450 watts x 1 chan.

    I have a Boston Acoustics gt-2200
    4 ohms: 200 watts x 2 chan.
    2 ohms: 350 watts x 2 chan.
    Bridged, 4 ohms: 700 watts x 1 chan.
    Bridged, 2 ohms: 900 watts x 1 chan.

    What would be the best and most efficient way to hook these speakers up to these amps(a diagram would be awesome).
    Thanks for all the help y'all have given!!

    based on what you have, I'd wire the tower surf speakers to the boston amp. it's pushing the most to a 4ohm load, wire it as a standard 2ch 2speaker setup.

    run the 4 exiles to the kicker amp and run it as 2 speakers per channel dropped to a 2ohm load. wire them in parallel connecting the 2 positive leads per side to the amps positive channel and same with the negative leads on each side..

    my .02 fwiw..
