Questions on paralleling amp

As you see in the pic at 2ohms 250 Watts
So instead of 2 speakers I Now have 2 pairs of 4ohms speakers, now paralled will make 2ohms and each speaker would get 125watts if Iím correct? Right?

You got the ohms correct, but each channel will push 125/2 or 62.5 w/ speaker.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I thought you were talking about running 4 speakers. You bridge the channels, not the speakers. A 2 channel amp can bridge down to 1 channel increasing the out-put wattage.

With that amp alone, you can't.

If you series two pairs, you would then have two 8 ohm pairs. If you then parallel the two pairs you would have a 4 ohm load between all four speakers. Bridge the amp mono and you would have 125 watts per speaker. Unfortunately, you would only have one channel, but it would solve your math problem.

Rest in Peace Michael Wade

So it would now take 2 amps to get 2 channel. Hmm
