    i have 2 power amps and 2 4ohms speakers

    each power amp in normal mode can handle 4ohms rated
    each power amp in btl (biamping) mode can handle 8ohms rated

    if i was to put one 4ohm speaker with one power amp and the other 4ohm speaker with the secong power amp. could i have each power amp on btl mode, considering it is rated at 8ohms with four set of speaker wire to two speakers per amp.

    Can Anyone Help?
    cheers, mike

    You will be in serious danger of overloading the amplifier if you put a 4 ohm load in btl mode, if it's not designed to do it, plus the danger of blowing the speakers.
