OEM Speaker Impedance (Base 6spk)

Hi all,

I'm ready to upgrade the stock speakers(Base, 6 speakers) and doing my research and reading all these threads. For now, I will only swap the 6x9s and 6 1/2s, mostly because I'm trying to correct the mid bass and bass for being too boomy and lack of clarity. I think the highs are Ok, so I will keep the stock tweeters. Here are my Q's:

-Can someone confirm the OEM speaker Impedance is 2 ohms?

I narrowed down to these:

JBL GX693, 2 ohms and have 94dB. JBL GX602, 2 ohms and 92dB.

Kicker KSC6934, 4 ohms, 92dB. Kicker KSC654, 4 ohms, 90dB.

Re: OEM Speaker Impedance (Base 6spk)

4ohm. (98% of factory speakers are 4ohm) and getting a 2 ohm could make your radio freak out (over heat, and shut off due to too much power output)

you should get an Alpine KTP-445u to run any aftermarket speakers as well- ESPECIALLY if they are decent speakers.
