Default rear speaker help please

i have a 2002 pontiac bonneville ssei
and need the rear 6x9'*
i have the monsoon system with the monsoon amp
the numbers on the speaker sticker are d34050 monsoon or 9356589

and these are stamped on speaker
39008f
31377
d9356589
was wondering were to find replacements either oem or after market
that will still have decent bass without amp upgrade. stock sounds fine to me
dont want to loose bass with watt hungry aftermarket speakers
and also does anyone know what ohm the stocks are
thanks[/img]

There'* a small handful of us that have switched to the Lightning Audio 6x9'* from WalMart (made by Rockford Fosgate). They're about 40 dollars, much better than stock, but of course nowhere near as good as the 2 or 3 hundred dollar speakers you can get.

Check out this thread for more info

I have a set of oem from my 01 ssei. i dont know the ohm'* off hand but i could test them if you want. More than likely they are 8 ohms and you wont really be able to just drop aftermarket speakers in. Let me know if you want the oem speakers and make me an offer. Email me at [email protected]

My monsoon 6x9s are 2 ohm. Replacing with a 4 ohm speaker will result in less volume.

From my past experiences, I have never seen an 8 Ohm car speaker. They are usually 4 for stock. While the Ohm load the stereo will see will differ in power load on the head unit, I never heard of it making the speaker lower in volume.

Then again, I dont have exp. with the Monsoon systems in these cars since at the time of purchase my car already had aftermarket installed.

the infinity system I had in my dodge was 8ohm. I guess the monsoon must be a different type of set up. Either way I have extra stock 6x9'* if you need um

Ohm'* directly relates to the amount of RMS power your speaker will handle. Lower ohm'* better ability to handle higher power(watts). Higher ohms takes less power(watts). That'* why a lot of stock car stereo speakers are 8ohm because the head units are crap. Unless in your case you have the Monsoon system. I'm sure your deck can push any 6x9 you'll drop in without any sacrifice. Believe me I've done it all.

I used to have a 10" house sub running bridged off the rear channel speakers in my grandpa'* '85 century with the 6x9 Delco'* still hooked up and it sounded awesome. No B.*.!

A speaker'* impedence has nothing to do with its power handling. Materials used during construction and strength/size of the magnet are a few of the characteristics that do effect power handling however. The lower the resistance attached to the output of an amplifier, the more current the amp will want to push to the load. It more less comes down to Ohm'* law. When resistance is halved, current will double assuming voltage stays the same. Resistance doubles, current is halved...ie; less volume at the same gain setting. But as in most things in life, there are exceptions to the rule. Some amplifier'* outputs are fully regulated to produce nearly the same output power to a variety of impedences, and example would be Xtants 1.1i D-class full range amplifier.

I would go with infinty referance series, IMHO there are by far the best sounding speakers I have ever heard, and they are not too bad on the wallet!!!. You will not be dissappointed with a set of these in your rear deck!!!
