My driver's side OEM door speaker has started crapping out on me :doh:

Been searching for clean aftermarket options that either:

A) fits behind the factory grill :cool:

or

B) has clean looking grills that don't look like giant tarantulas :eek:


I've been out of the car audio game for quite some time, but have always liked Infinity's Kappa line :)

Anyhoo, is anyone here running these in their doors?

Are you using an after market amplifier/head unit? I would recommend doing so to get the best out of these.

I was running these in the front doors with an amplifier and Pioneer head unit. Sounded great, little to no distortion.

Yes and No

I have a Sony XAV-W1 (17w RMS/52w Max), but I plan on running them directly just as I have been with the OEM speakers :meh:

The part that has me worried (other than the fitment) is the fact that they're 2ohms :confused:

From what I've gathered, they did this in order to get more output from low powered HU's, but I'm not sure how well an HU rated a 4ohms will hold up to a 2ohm load :hmm:
