You can see how adding more speakers affects the load. 2 at 4ohm is usually preferred. I have large systems wth only 1 per channel. The power delivered by the amp increases as the load goes down but the amp is working harder and running warmer. Most modern amplifiers handle it well though. I am replacing an amp in a school gym a friend installed 14 yrs ago. It has 5 cabinets per channel. We figured the long cable runs(DC resistance)bumped it up over 2 ohms. Have not measured it but the old amp lasted that long.
