Home amplifier in a car what do you think for a beginner?

Expensive. Home Amps require 120V AC power source. You will need a power inverter capable of running the amp that is run from the car battery (12V DC).

Why are car speaker 4 ohms and home speakers 8 ohms I understand the technical difference but why is there a difference?

Car stereos use 12V which is lower than the 30V used in home stereos. Power = voltage^2/Resistance. To get the same power with lower voltage the speaker resistance is lower. Most home speakers are now 4 Ohms and car speakers are now 2 Ohms.

Bose speakers designed for home theater / home stereo applications can be powered by any stereo or surround receiver with sufficient power output for the ratings of the speakers. Bose speakers for car stereo applications must be powered by Bose amplifiers, since they have a special super-low impedence design which is not used by other manufacturers. Bose speakers for MP3 players have their own amplifier built into the speakers.

Are 8 ohm speakers for the home stereo and 4 ohm speakers for the car?

I am also looking for a better answer to this question. I have always known that almost all car speakers were 4 ohms, unless talking about subwoofers and/or dual coiled speakers, and that home speakers were 8 ohms. And until recently have thought this to be true. Until I looked on the back of my dads pair of Dynaudio speakers and saw that the impedence was 4 ohms. Now I am completely confused. Initially I thought it was due to the Voltage and Current that Car audio lacks and Home Audio has plenty of and then I see this!!! LOL
