    speaker to amp matching...

    I have done research on this topic but I have a specific question. I'm attempting to set up a small theater with surround sound for cheap. Anything will be better than what we have now (a single amp running 4 speakers in mono).
    If I set up an amp with 50 watts @ 8 ohms per channel to drive a pair of 100 watt 4 ohm speakers in series (thus 8 ohms) will I be getting enough power to create a decent sound from my speakers?
    I assume that having an amp with 100 watts @ 8 ohms p/c would be preferable, but would my first option be good or would it suck?
    thanks

    Technically - you're safe. Audio wise - it's subjectional. If they're all matching speakers, there shouldn't be any difference in quality. If not matching, to a trained ear, they'll be able to hear the discrepencies (i.e. balancing & phasing). To the audience in general - they wouldn't suspect a thing.
