Default Setup, or series wiring with different speakers

I'm setting up a home theater system.

<b>What I'm using:</b>

Denon AVR-2105 (http://www.denon.co.uk/site/frames_m...detail&Pid=146)

Speakers left over from a Philips MX5900SA (http://www.amazon.com/Philips-MX5900.../dp/B0006TVZ0O) - all of which are 4 ohm loudspeakers.

Some Boston shelf speakers - 8 ohm loudspeakers.

<b>What I want to do:</b>

Use the Philips Sub-Bass Pipes and as front speakers with two of the surround speakers sat on top (in the seats on the pipes, where they belong) - wired in series in order to boost the ohms to 8 on each front channel.

Use the remaining Philips speakers as surround left and right.

Use the Boston speakers as surround back.

Eventually, I'll get a preamped subwoofer

Does this all seem right? Or have I lost the plot?

Thanks.
Scott

Hi,

unless specifically designed to be wired like this it won't work well.
