I am working on a project where 60 small 8 Ohm 0.1W speakers will be playing music from a live DJ. The majority of the sound will come from the pair of JBL 15" loudspeakers but i would like some of the sound to come through the small speakers. My concern is that if i run the amp with only a small group of speakers run in series the wattage from the amp will fry the speakers, and if i run the amp with too much resistance it will fry the amp. To achieve the 0.1 Watt amp output i would need 4000 Ohms of resistance on one channel. What to do? I have a 4 channel amp that puts out 50W at 8 Ohms per channel. Thanks for any comments/advice!

Wire the speakers correctly for a 4 to 8 ohm load.

But frankly I don't see any point in using 60 speakers.
