Audio Design Engineer; systems, loudspeakers, cd/dvd players, etc. I am knowledgeable in all high end audio equipment and installations. MAKE SURE YOU GIVE A MAKE AND MODEL NUMBER AND CAR IF IT IS AN AUTO QUESTION. Note: I am getting some who ask good questions that take a lot of time to research but then the questioner fails to read the answer. Please don't ask questions unless you are seriously looking for an answer. If you find an answer to your question otherwise then let me know with your reply. Thank you.

Yes, augmenting the system with more speakers is a legitimate method. And, not only more speakers, properly placed, can fill in the sound areas where audio strength is needed. Power level of the amplifiers
I see nothing wrong with your proposal. It may be an improvement for driving the speakers and the 70v Mackie should really be using 70v transformers to connect the speakers. Transformers are usually
A good place to start is cnet.com which carries reviews of all kinds. You can search it for stereo receivers. Another good place to study is crutchfield.com which has many helps and hints for starting
Well, it doesn't quite work that way. Six speakers in parallel is 8/6 = 1.3 ohms. That is too low for one channel. It would be more ideal if you could get by with 8 speakers; 4 on each side of the
Nothing wrong with the speaker units you have described. Here is the engineering matter you must conform to. The impedance load on the amplifier must be observed so as to not overload the amplifier
