you can't feed the subs more than their RMS rating, i.e.: 200W. If that's a kicker 1200.1 amp that you have, you can run all 4 subs off that 1 amp

not necessarily .. i guess it depends on how well made the subs are tho.. cause i know Rs can take alot more than there rms rating and im sure others can to i can say tho cause i havent used any other. plus its not like the subs will be getting 300 unless hes just got the thing cranked all the time

I have a question for you, why would you want 8 subs?? Do you even have that much space?
Have you tried getting 2 15" subs with higher power ratings instead? For example, you could get 4 200W subs or 1 15" 1000W.
What are you after? SPL or SQ?
In theory, 4 10-12" subs will give better SQ than 1 15-18" sub cause smaller subs will respond much faster.
