I don't know if these are the right forums for this but I like it here so i'll try.

I have a set-up like this

SPKR (8ohm)------------Powered Mixer (160W/4OHM)----------------(SPKR (8ohm)

The powered mixer is a mono amp with 2 speaker jacks. The speakers share 160 W.
Could i hook it up like this, or would the sound quality screw up, and could the wire handle it?

Powered Mixer---------------------SPKR-------------------SPKR.

Thanks , all help appreciated.
