    Not without replacing the speakers. There are 4 10" speakers each 4 ohms. They are connected series/parallel to be 4 ohms total.

    It can be connected as 16 ohms, or 4 ohms, or it can even be connected as 1 ohm, if you happen to have one of the Dead's old McIntosh amps......

    8 ohms is no-go without changing the speakers.
