    Question Replacements

    Im fairly new here, so Im sure this issue has been beat and beat to death, so please bear(sp?) with me. I want to replace the rear seat woofers in my 98 TA with monsoon. I bought a pair of single coil 4 ohm Infinitis. The Inifinits obviously have only 2 terminals one + and one -. My factory harness clips which connected to the factory 6.5's have been clipped cut off, so I now have 4 free standing wires per side. Does anyone know how to connect them properly? I tried and I got sound, but it was VERY faint.

    Thanks in advance,

    Shaun K.

    look at the stickies on teh top of the audio forum; they have all the information you need.

    your 4ohm speaker won't work with the 2ohm signal from the car.

    There is no such thing as a "2ohm signal from the car". The speaker is what determines what the load on the amp is. If it's a 4ohm speaker then the load is 4ohms. If the speaker is 2ohms then the load is 2ohms. If it's 16ohms then the load on the amp is 16ohms.

    4ohm speakers will work fine with the factory stereo. They will simply not get as much power as the 2ohm speakers. 16ohm speakers would work too but they would get even less power than the 4ohm speakers.

    yeah thats whay I figured. I took the 4 ohms back, they hardly had any power. I think Im just gonna get a sub and amp, its too much work to replaced those speakers with aftermarket, and we all know the factory speakers arent worth what you pay for them :-/
