If you use 32 drivers in the array, wire 8 in series (32 ohm) & pararallel the 4 sets and you end up at 8 ohms. Or wire 4 in parallel (1 ohm) & series the 8 sets.

Power handling is 32 x power handling of 1. Efficiency is about 14-15 db more than a single.

That comes to 2.24m ~88 inches. Hope you have (at least) 8 ft ceilings
