I believe the correct answer here is DONT. First because it would sound like doodie to have that many drivers in the car second because your deck is gonna be 20W RMS x 4, so you would run each door in series than parallel so each speaker would get a whole 5 watts of power which would just not be sufficient, or smart. So back to my original answer, DONT!

Edit, I missed the part about the amp, so you would do the same wiring I said but to the amp. Lets say that your amp is 100W x 4 rms, so now your getting 25w to each speaker, still likely not enough unless the speakers are real pieces of doodie, which still brings me back to the start, DONT DO IT!

More drivers does not mean more sound, UNLESS you have the power AS WELL as the number of drivers.

Fewer, higher-quality drivers (NOT just higher-power handling drivers) will give you MUCH more "clarity" than a whole bunch of drivers with a few watts each.

I second Ravendarat's opinion: DON'T!

If all you have is deck power, it's going to sound like crap, no matter WHAT you do... You will never be able to keep up with desck power - you MUST add an amplifier to your highs. Without dedicated amplification, you're hosed.

well with four 15's in the back seat you pretty much sacrifice all clarity and quality so just go with what you want. just keep in mind that more speakers doesnt mean louder because every speaker you add will take power away from the other speakers. instead of just saying that you want this many speakers you should try to find a balance with how much power you amp will give you at its lowest rated ohm load and then find speakers to match the amount of power you have at your disposal. if you cant give a speaker at least 40 watts continuously then i would look for a better arrangement.
