Whether wired in series or paralell, as long as the impedance of each speaker is the same, each will receive the same power output. Check your owners manual on the 1020 as it may be 4 ohm stable, allowing you to use 2 8 ohm speakers in paralell per channel. if not, wire each string in series to present a 16 ohm load to the receiver, or find speakers that are either 4 or 16 ohms each and wire appropriately to present an 8 ohm load to the AVR. If you need a wiring diagram, just ask, I'll send one.

It appears Lex is right, at least for this AVR. I checked the manual and your AVR is not 4 ohm stable, therefore series wired 8's or 4's or parallel 16's are your only option (without adding dubious impedance matching doohicky's). This will not affect sound quality in any way, contrary to what other posters have said.

I looked at the link. It is correct. Best of luck on your setup!
