    Can you replace stock 2 ohm speakers with 4 ohm ones?

    Hi,

    I am looking to change the stock speakers on a car with a stock amp...

    Now, some of the stock speakers (there are 8 of them) are 2 ohms and some are 4 ohms...

    I really like the Pioneer Premier speakers and want to use them, but they are all 4 ohms - can I do this?

    Will it effect the sound?



    Thanks as always!

    Someone suggested that I might lose some bass in the rear 6 x 9 if I changed the 2 ohm ones to 4 ohm ones...

    True?

    Higher impedence means there will be less power going to them, that is all

    Yes, what he said. But if the new driver is more efficient, you might not notice a difference in loudness.
