Default wattage noob

alright lets say hypotheticaly.. I was running a multichannel amp that has 90x4 watts or whatever. And I plan on running it to the 2 from speakers but the are only 50 watts each... would it overload them?

you have an amp, 4chs. this means it has 4 sets of +/-.

you have 2 speakers. which means you will use 2 of those 4 sets.
if you do this. you will have no problem.

you CAN wire it differently and MAYBE get more power from the amp. but i suggest you do it the easy way.
