installing infinity reference 3023cf speakers, but I have questions
I just purchased these infinity reference 3032cf speakers after reading several threads on here about how great they sound and so on.
I realize there is a bit of cutting involved, ok that is fine. After reading more about these speakers with an impedance of 2 ohms, I am concerned about the infinity gold system in my 02 overland that is 4 ohms.
Should I return these for another set of speakers that are 4 ohms, place a resistor before the speaker to increase the impedance, or just go with the speakers as is?
I know the amp can run warmer with a lower impedance speaker. What other concerns should I have?
I am really looking forward to some tech help with this decision making process. Thank
edit: I placed the wrong model number on the title: I have 3032cf

Thank you for the input. I based my info on the website wjjeeps, which states that these systems are 4 ohms.

I installed some Reference Series speakers in the front and rear doors of my wife's WJ a couple months ago, and they sound great. I too was concerned about the conflicting info on the impedance (WJJeeps vs. JeepForum), but haven't had any issues with them. Installation was really straight forward and the adapter rings meant I didn't have to cut up or drill new holes into the door panels.
I made sure to get two way speakers for front and rear, but Amazon goofed and shipped me three ways for the front door, which took away a lot of the 'depth' the front speakers provided.
