Would it be a better bet then the Co-ax all around?
We wouldn't be putting an amp or a Sub.

Of course, a component set is always better. As you may know, higher frequencies are highly directional... The tweeters need to be somewhere your ears can see them.

In most cars with stock door locations, coaxials would just 'fire' into your feet, giving your shins great sound... problem is, your ears would appreciate those frequencies better... So get components for the front. The midbass would go into the door and the tweeter on the dash, next to the A pillar. While a component costs more than the coaxial from the same series of product, It is worth the extra $$$

As u will not be installing amplifier & subw,i would recommend 6x9 at rear with components at front for better sound.
Pio HU 6000
front 6.5" components 6000
Rear 6x9" on tray 7000 or coax for abt 3000 if cant increase ur budget.
wiring+install 500.

Go for JBL,alpine or Hertz brand for speakers.
Some HU wont be able to play spkears rated at 2ohm like alpine HU.So u can buy HU with more internal amp power like pioneer.
I would prefer speakers rated at 2ohm but then power them using amplifier rather than from HU.

make sure that HU's internal amp is stable at 2 ohms.... (most cases HU's internal amps are 4ohm stable...)
by fitting 2ohm speakers to HU, might damage the HU on long run....

You'll run into trouble with 2 ohm speakers if you're doing a tri-mode connection on a 2-channel amplifier stable down to 2 ohms in stereo, and connecting a 4ohm sub.

Most HU manufacturers also rate the internal power amp to be stable upwards of 4 ohms, I'm not really sure how they manage the 2 ohm load, especially if it's on all 4 channels. But if Sam says they do just fine, I'll buy that.

Sam, are you sure the midbass driver of the speakers in concern are 2 ohms, or just maybe a tweeter or mid? Well, nominal impedance is usually with reference to the woofer, but just confirming. If it's just the mid/ hf section, it shouldnt be too much of a problem, but if the woofer has a 2 ohm v/c then i'm pleasantly surprised.

You are right B&T, no big surprises here lol, the effective impedance is around 3.2 ohms.

hey sam,
are you sure that 2ohm rating is not the effective ohm rating?
or its just the woofer impedence?

ant.
