As you know the output of the 4 x 100w amp is wired directly in some fashion to the c70's 10 speakers . The center dash pad speaker gets plugged directly into the rear of the 901. In the S70 8 speaker system how did you distribute / connect the speakers? There are 2 LF and 2 RF. If they are 4 ohms each that brings the load down to 2 ohms. Same for the rear door and deck speakers. That is a pretty low load. With so much power from the amp I was thinking to hook each pair in series to load the amp channels with an 8 ohm load. What do you think? Thanks.

Just FYI this thread is from 2011 so the OP is almost certainly not around any longer. But maybe someone else who knows will chime in.
