The OP said he was going to wire the speaker(s) up to be 4 ohm load and said the amp was 3 ohm capable. On paper it should be OK. BUT, I will say that amps that are 3 ohm amps tend to be lower quality units sold as part of a home theater unit. I could be wrong in this case, but that has been my experience.
