    Difference in running 2 ohm or 4 ohm car door speakers?

    have an amp that produces 4 x 60 at 4 ohm,
    or 4 x 120 at 2 ohm, so.. im thinking about running a front stage of 2 ohm per speaker, and running 4 rear speakers 2 per channel, final load of 2 ohm.
    whats your opinions? will it sound louder/better?

    If your running substage in back, I would bridge the 4 channel (if possible) and run all the power to some nice front components, and seal up/deaden front doors. It takes quite a bit of work to make rear speakers blend well with the front stage. If you just want it to be extremely loud, and don't care about sound quality, your idea should work fine. I personally never run rear speakers in a car that has sub(s).
