Default Speaker rating

I was wondering if any one would know or know where to find out the OHM rating of the front speakers in a 93 LeSabre limited with out taking the door panels off or removing the head unit.

I believe it says concert sound on the door panels and that they have tweeters in them and I know the rear speakers are 10 OHM

Thanks

Either as a result of the way they wired the integrated tweeters with the mids in the 6x9s, or in order to compensate for the high guage wire'* resistance in the longer run to the rear of the car. My educated guesses.

Yes the front speakers with the Concert sound should have a 4 ohm 5.25 Midrange, and a 4 ohm Tweeter...

I was also wondering what GM was thinking... My 91 LE came with 9.5 ohm front speakers in the dash and 4 ohm 6x9'* in the deck..

The 91 SSE Had the 4 ohm front speakers and Tweets, and 4 ohm rear 6x9'* and tweets...

The 95 SE had 4 ohm front speakers and 10 ohm rears... Almosy lost

working for a gm dealership from personal experience it probally had nothing at all to do with engineers and everything to do with what they got for the cheapest price in a large quanity.
