my rear doors are 4 ohm, front tweeters are 4 ohm, front door and rear deck, 2 ohm.

I replaced everything w/2 ohm infinity'*. Sounds absolutely great, everything else is stock.

I just replaced the Front speakers with rockford pro speakers I need to get exact numbers on them but I guess he had to modify the space because they wouldnt fit. I am totally by-passing the monsoon amp on my set-up and hopefully it eliminates some of these problems. I know we tested the rear speakers and mine where 2 ohm.

out of curiosity why is this such a big concern?

adding unamped aftermarket speakers is like buying a gallon of milk with no milk inside(insert whatever witty statement you want here)

the difference is night and day when you actually power them. i would be very surprised if the monsoon amp is sending more than 25rms to each speaker...and even then it'* not a good signal regardless...

without them being powered you will end up hearing the highs and basically no midbass(worth talking about) out of the aftermarket speakers as 25w vs the 75-100w they can take is a rather large difference. and thats just nominal power...

edit: oh and for $100 you are going to get neither DBs or SQ. car audio isn't cheap. and you get what you pay for...
