Default 2001 SS - Speakers

A few years ago, I replaced my front speakers with Dual Electronics 120 Watt 6.5" 3 way speakers. The specifications show that the speakers Impendance are 4 ohms. In another thread, I read that the original speakers were 2 ohms. Do I need to find a set of speakers that are 2 ohms or can I stick with 4 ohms? I have the stock amplifier in my trunk.

From my experience as long as all the speakers are the same ohm, front and rear your gold, you won't hurt your amp.

I do not know the Impendance of the rear speakers. From what I've seen, most speakers have an Impendance of 4 ohms. Is there a benefit in buying 2 ohms speakers versus using 4 ohms for the front?

From Crutchfields site:


Depends on what kind of sound you are looking for. Generally speaking, the lower the impedance, the more power you can move through the speaker, which means more volume. A higher impedance results in better "damping" or control of the speaker movement. So the higher impedance will yield a tighter, more accurate sound, although when talking about high quality amps and subs, most people won't notice the difference.
