I have 6 Polk Audio RC80i 2-way Premium In-Ceiling 8" that I would like to run off 1 Sonos Amp.  Is that possible?  It sounds like you can using Sonos’ architectural speakers because they are all identical, but is that possible with 6 identical Polk speakers?

Thanks!

Here is the AMP spec sheet. Two pairs of 8-Ohm speakers can be connected to AMP, not three.

However, you could use impedance matching controls for each pair of speakers. This will allow adjusting the output of each pair. Three pairs will work very well with these controls.

SO THESE ARE THE SPEARKERS i HAVE AND i HAVE 2 PAIRS OF THEM. Do I need 2 amps or just one. can I get away with the one amp?

As stated above, because the speakers are 8 ohms, you can connect 2 pair at one time.
