    Icon32 First time installation

    I'll be doing my first install in the next month or so, doing part of my build this following week. In my rear deck I have two 6x9's that I want to wire 2ohm the speakers are 4ohms each svc, how can I wire them down to 2ohms? eventually i'll be wiring the 4 door speakers to 2ohms also, the door speakers are also 4ohm svc speakers. Any tips about installation would be much appreciated

    Re: First time installation

    Could they be wired to 2ohms in a similar way two 4ohm subs could? and so the side doors are the only ones that could be wired down to 2ohms?

    yes 2 4 ohm speakers in parallel will make 2 ohms
