I gotta agree. Nowhere near enough information to give you a good answer.

Chances are, though, if you're talking about a portable CD player, it'* not gonna push much more than it was built with. To keep them portable, they don't put a lot of extra amp in them due to weight.

If it'* a home system that'* been retired to the garage, you might have a bit more lee way

also it really depends on the Ohm ratings on the speakers and the cd player / amp. If you wire to many speakers in paralell to the amp, the Ohm load will be to small and burn up the amp

Many home stereos are rated at 8 Ohm and some at 4 Ohm.
I have seen stock car speakers at 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 Ohm.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you keep track of the Ohm load.
