2 volume controls - 1 with 3 speaker sets, 1 with one speaker set

I would like to do the following off a single amp:

1 volume control controls 1 paid speaker craft 4 ohm speakers
1 volume control controls 3 pair yamaha outdoor speakers (6 ohms labeled)

volume controls are russound wALT

Amp is speaker craft bb275

My thought is to wire the 3 pair of yamaha's in parallel, and set their volume control to 8x (resulting in 16 ohms, and set the other volume control to 4x on the 4 ohm speaker. The volume controls then go to the amp in parallel
I think this results in a combined 8 ohm load to the amp.

Is this the best way to do it?
