Hi I have 4 pioneer300 watt car speakers that I want to use on a regular (240 volt) surround amplifier instead of a car radio. But on that amplifier it says on a bright red sticker: speakers NOT LESS THAN 8ohm. Is there a trick to make a 4 ohm speaker 8 ohm? By putting something in between like a coil or something like that? I've heard about it but never had to look into it. In a box, these speakers have a great sound, which is why I want to use them

or to use 2:1 transformer

Not if the 8 ohms only amplifier has 600W per channel, than the voltage is sufficiently high to drive 2 speakers in series. But considering 300W Pioneer, these are for sure speakers that can only handle 30Wrms maximum. So even a poor audio amplifier will have enough driving capabilty.
Yes, it's surely worth a try.

Checking Pioneer Speakers advertised with 300W randomly: Might even be 40 Watts. https://www.pioneer-car.eu/de/de/products/ts-g1730f >> ... mit einer Nennbelastbarkeit von 40 Watt ist maximal mit bis zu 300 Watt belastbar ...
