Speaker wiring / setup

Hey all, so my dad has some spare speakers sitting around and i wanna set them up in my tj. I already have a soundbar that came with the jeep when i bought it (used) so i dont know how to set up any other audio. I would like to keep the soundbar in and have the other speakers sitting in the back, any ideas where to run the wires and where they attach? new to vehicles haha

The impedance of a speaker is measured in "ohms". Should say right on it somewhere.. Most commonly, they're just typical single 4-ohm speakers, but there's a lot of 2-ohm options out there for people trying to "squeeze" everything they can out of a factory amplifier or source unit. What I'm getting at is, you could just wire them in parallel with another channel (Front or Back) and be done with it. But if you drop the impedance too low on some of that stock equipment (or even the internal amplifier on a head unit), it may be damaging to some components of your audio system. That's why I asking.

Adding more speakers at random isn't a good way to increased volume, bass or quality. What are you looking to gain by adding more speakers? What do you currently have installed in the dash and soundbar locations?

iPhone app user; excuse typos...thanx.
