    4ohm VS 8ohm speakers

    I have a 2004 silverado with 4x6s in the rear doors. They are 8 ohm speakers and I am going to replace them with 4 ohm speakers. Is there going to be a noticable difference ? Whats the difference between 4 0hm and 8 ohm speakers
    Thanks for any help ,
    Mike

    Never get 8ohm speakers or subs. they are the lower end of the quality list. 4ohm are made of the good parts and 8ohm are made of all used or defective parts.... Everyone knows this

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
