installing infinity reference 3023cf speakers, but I have questions
 
Hi Guys,

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

No, you will be Good, the factory speakers Are not 4ohm btw, more pics of install in my buildt thread, they sound Way better, Good luck

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.

no resistors needed, read my email...

THey are 4 Ohm

True Four Ohm Impedance technology: speaker's 2-ohm impedance combines with speaker wire impedance for a 4-ohm load

just noticed this on the crutchfield site. Thank you Merc. I did get the email as well.

Just reading the impedance on the speaker is what concerned me. I did not realize the accounted for the speaker wire impedance. No concerns now.

Gotcha, let me know if you have any questions or you want to see a pic of my installation.

Following up on this..what did the OP do to help with sound?

I had to do the same with making the oem hole a little bigger. After installing these up front, they are very quiet. :( Install an amplifier?

ZJPunk98 11-19-2014 08:18 PM

Mine produce excellent sound. did you reverse a wire?

I think my issue is I bought the wrong Ohm speakers. Mine are 2 Ohm and the stock are 4 Ohm. I'm just going to return them and buy 4 Ohm. That's easier than wiring up another amp. Thanks!

did you read this entire thread? the 2 vs 4 ohm issue is addressed in the thread. I am unaware of a 4 ohm version.
