No you can't.

The two amps that drive the four speakers, each amp driving two speakers in parallel. The parallel wiring drops the impedance seen by the amp to 3 ohms which is why you can't just pop 4-ohm aftermarket drivers in their places since this would make the impedance 2 ohms which is a significant increase in power required of the amp.

That's fine. Just unplug from the stock speakers and put new speaker in its place right?


Also for anyone interested, I said I'd add a vid in my sound thread but I don't feel like updating http://youtu.be/JA31Q1QraH4
Again I really can't thank@Marc enough for the kicker cvr recommendation

Well ****. I'd have to rip out the amps and and redo everything then. **** that ****.
Also, you can't even hear the exhaust in that vid. Andbits just to show how much the sub moves anyways :p

6ohm wired parallel = 3ohm
It's all ****y lol

Not really just buy 6ohm speakers remove the connection and solder.

Are thier any 6 ohm speakers aftermarket? It is an odd resistance. I feel a trip to kicker.com is in order.

---------- Post added at 11:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:10 PM ----------

All kicker has is 4 ohm mids and tweeters :( I'd love to replace all speakers with kicker after hearing how good the sub is.

---------- Post added at 11:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:12 PM ----------

Couldent I just put a 2ohm resistor in the circuit for each speaker? Bring total impedance per speaker to the magical 6?
