So I already have 2 speakers up there anyone have some tips on adding 2 more. Obviously I'd like it to be as easy as possible so if anyone has any quick tips I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Run them 2ohm. Add a wire from your existing speaker to the next. 2 speakers per amp channel.

I wondered if that would work well enough. I knew it would power the in line speaker but didn't know if it would drop the amp down to 2 ohms which is what I want. Are you certain it drops the ohm load? Again thanks

Yup it sure will. Be carefull and check what ohm your existing speakers are, some like skylon are 3 ohms which when adding another set will produce a 1.5 ohm load which most amps can't handle.

Thanks guys I appreciate it and I've checked the speakers ohm and they are at 4 so I'm solid there. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I'm having the same difficulties right now sort of. I'm having trouble running all my wire for 4 speakers through the tower. I can get two through, I have 4 ohm Kicker 6.5's, and I have a two or four channel amp.

My question is how would the wiring go to drop it down to the 2 ohm so I don't have to try and run all that wire?

Run the two you have through to two of the speakers, then jump off each of those two to the speaker next to it from the positive to positive, and the negative to negative. This will give you your 2 ohm load on your amp.
