    2 OHM Tweeters??

    i was looking at some tweeters and saw that there are some tweeters with 2Ohm Impedence and was wondering if you hook them up to just your HU can you ruin them faster then hooking them up to a crossover with HU or amp??



    96 Ford Ranger std Cab

    HU: Crappy Dual
    Fronts: Infinity Kappa 6x8
    Rears: None
    Amp: Memphis 500.1 Mono
    Subs: 2 Sony Xplod Shallow 12"

    Refs so far: tyroneshoes (bought from)

    you won't ruin the tweeter but rather the headunit. you don't need a lot of power for tweeters so 2 ohm tweets seem rather useless

    i imagine they are too harsh? what do you have for power? lpg 25nfa silk tweets would be nice. they are 8 ohm but tweeters don't need a lot of power

    also what are you using as a crossover?
