I have the 6 speaker speaker system and would like to keep the stock touch screen. Been awhile since I have done any car audio. Thanks
Greetings and welcome,
Check these out:

Also, within this forum, search for member RAGEOFFURY, that member has excellent post for the 6 speaker system.
The resistance for the 6 speaker system is 4 ohms. The wattage I not sure of, however, with any amp that is built into the headunit, the wattage is going to be low. The key for speaker selection, especially if you are not adding any amps, is get speaker that have a high sensitivity rating of 90+ db. This way it be for efficient draw on the internal amp.
The 6 speaker system is the easiest to modify.
Hope this helps.
Best for now.
