    Jl 6w0

    Hey whats up everybody. I recently replaced the mid speakers in the backseat with a set of JL 6W0's and they dont even have as much bass as the stocks. Is there just not enough power going to them or what is my problem?

    Are the JL speakers 4 ohms or 2 ohms? The factory speakers are 2 ohms. If your new speakers are 4 ohms you have only half as much current flow as the stock speakers. Less current means less power to the speakers.

    If the JL speakers are 2 ohms but much less efficient than the stock speakers that would also explain why the new speakers aren't as loud.

    they can either be wired to a 4 or 8 ohm load. So does that mean they need amped?

    Yes, I would never run aftermarket speakers off of a HU.

    They don't "have" to be but if you want them to sound their best an amp is the only way to go.

    are u sure u didnt mean to type 2ohm/8ohm(dual 4ohm voice coils per speaker)...
    or 1ohm/4ohm(dual 2ohm voice coils per speaker)
    or 4ohm/16ohm(dual 8ohm voice coils per speaker very unlikely though dont know of any company that makes this type)

    There are two kinds of 6w0. The 6w0-4 is 4 ohm. The 6w0-8 is 8 ohm. You can't switch the ohm on a speaker, at least I don't think you can. Either way, they will not work properly on a 2 ohm monsoon amp.
