Running Infinity 2 Ohm Speakers off the Head Unit
I know I am probably killing this speaker upgrade thing to death but, I have been looking at the lower end speaker upgrade (below the Focal's) and I am finding the Infinity reference series seem nice sounding with the higest efficiency. The only thing blocking me from buying and installing them is the 2-Ohm rating factor. Will this potentially overheat and fry the factory head unit?
Another question is Crutchfield is saying 5-1/4" speakers for both front and rear. Metra is saying 6.5" will fit (without any brackets). I am wondering if anyone has done 6.5"'s and what aftermarket brackets you purchased to accomplish this (Scosche or otherwise?) or if no brackets are required at all. Has anyone measured the factory speaker openings in the front and rear of the Rav? If so please post your results.
I was also considering installing speaker baffles behind the aftermarket speakers to improve the bass response since the doors seem to be vibrating a lot from the rear of the factory speakers (robbing them of some output from the front).
I am not looking to invest a lot of money as this is a lease and I am planning on returning it in a couple of years but would like to enjoy the years of driving it while I have it.
Thanks in advance.
