Default Amp needed for speakers

Hi All,

i have four speakers the have following specs: 3W and 8ohm each.
I want to attach an amp so i can power them. i don't know what i should get and if i should connect them in parallel or in sequence. also if amp could be small it'd be great.
any help/advice is brilliant.

What's the application? Connect two of the speakers in series, twice to make two strings then connect the two string in parallel. The resulting network will be 8 ohms and can take 12W. Almost any amp will work fine for such a low load at 8 ohm

Ok Chris A is right - see this little diagram for series parallel connection,. In your case all of the speakers are 8 ohm so the total to the amp is 8 ohm
