ok hears what I'm working with:

4, 8ohm 400w rms speakers.

My amp is rated at:

700w+700w 8ohm/stereo

950w+950w 4ohm/stereo

1600w+1600w 2ohm/stereo

1900w 8ohm/bridged

3200w 4ohm/bridged.

Now if I hook these up 2 in parallel on each side I should have an amp that is 1280w-2000w at 4ohm. Is this right?

Is it possible to hook two of these up in series on each side=16ohms by 16ohms. Then paralleling them so its back to 8ohms. Then hooking all that to my amp bridged for 1900w?

! PLEASE !

Help me find the best way to hook up my speakers

Is this amp even sufficiant for 4 of these speakers?

It should be ok for two of them right?

Let's see...

(2) 400 watts rms speakers per side would be an 800 watt rms load. So yes you would be looking for an amp that can do about 1600 watts/ 4-ohms in the power range of 1280-2000 watts. The amp you have would be a bit small at its 950 watts per channel rating.

Hooking the speakers up in series-parallel would give you a 3200 watt 8-ohm load and the amp would still be on the small side providing only 1900 watts Bridge-Mono/8-ohms when you should be looking in the range of 2560 to 4000 watts Bridge-Mono output at 8-ohms.
