Speaker question / amp question

Hey all, I am new to the site and new to the forums so I apologize if this has already been asked:

The speakers in my e36 sucked (they were aftermarket--only the back ones), so I decided to take them out. I put in a home speaker and sub that is one unit (a stand up theater speaker--Acoustic Research).

What I did was-- kept the housings for the back speakers and connected a speaker wire to the wires in the housings. I did this on each housing. So...coming out of the left housing was one speaker wire (one end connected to red, another to black)...and coming out of the right housing was another speaker wire (again..one end to red and one to black). I then connected the other ends of the speaker wire black to black on one end, and red to red on another end. After this, I connected the red end to the red terminal on the speaker and the black end to the black terminal on the speaker.

It sounds amazing and everything seems to be fine.. I am just worried I am doing something bad to my cars amp... The AR speaker is 8 ohms. Each of the 2 housings (stock) in the car have 4 ohms written on them.

Again, everything sounds perfect and all, I am just curious as to long-term damage...

Thank you all very much!! BMW e36 325i 4dr stock amp, stock radio

I can try and explain my situation a little better if you don't understand what I did.. Thanks again!
