resurrecting old thread

Ok - so I'm resurrecting this old thread to find out if anyone knows how many watts the BA system sends to the rear 6x9's - and if anyone knows if those rears are 4ohm or 8ohm impedance. I'd like to replace the rear 6x9's with something that will provide a little better sound for the system, probably 3-ways, but I'd like to know what wattage range and resistance to look at.
I assume that they are only getting around 40W, but I want to be sure.

Yeah, I can kind of guess based on knowing the amp is around 285watts... and clearly the front door speakers get more power than any of the other four. I just want to know if anyone out there has the exact info and whether or not the stock rear Boston 6x9s are 4Ω or 8Ω

I have to go with bigal on this one i have heard from many differant people that there were 6.5s in their doors and some with 6x9s and i think i also read somewhere that someone had one of each(one 6.5 and one 6x9) so before you dive in i would double check!!

I'm not messing with the door speakers, just the rears - and I know they are 6x9's because I had to tap into them for my LOC. (I didn't look to see what the resistance was because I hadn't yet decided to replace them)

In the past the BAs were 2 ohms, most times the stock speakers won't have the ohms on it. I use an ohm meter to verify speaker setups prior to conecting to amps. The thing to remember is not to have any movment on the cone. The ohm ratings are nominal, pretty cool to watch then meter change when making the cone move. The only company in the past that used to make 2 ohm replacement speakers was BA, MBQuart used to I think, but no more.

Infinity made/makes them. Check Crutchfield.
