    infinity kappa speakers

    I was checking out the infinity kappa line because they have some good power handling on their speakers for cheap prices, and right now Ive got the 6x9 ref. in my car but they are slightly too deep to fit my subwoofer box under them, so I was trying to find out if the kappa's were slightly less deep (I really doubt it) but anyways when I was looking into them I saw that they are running them at 2ohms, and Im not totally sure about the whole 2ohm thing cuz doesnt 4ohms provide cleaner sound on speakers? anyways if somebody could help me out it would be greatly appreciated, thx for your time

    EDIT::

    could somebody just tell me what would be the difference of running 4ohms to 2ohm on my speakers, cuz right now Ive got around 70 watts availble for a 4ohm load on a 4 channel amp

    Re: infinity kappa speakers

    there is no sound difference between different ohm loads. lower ohms means less resistance which means more power can be provided (well not exactly but thats the best way i can explain it right now) and almost all amps are stable at 2 ohms stereo so yes you could use the 2 ohm speakers and hook em up the exact same way your old speakers and they would see more power.

    Re: infinity kappa speakers

    alright thanks guys for your help, I might see about removing the plastic mouting thing that is in my trunk because it originally had bose speakers so everything was indiviually amped and everything so everything had its own mounting/box thing

    and when I was talking to some people about ohm difference on subs this is what they said, so I figured on speakers it made a difference
