How important is it to make sure the replacement speakers are 2 ohms? I plan on keeping my 430N head unit and I noticed the Kicker factory replacement speakers are 4 ohm.

I'm an Alpine girl so I recommend the Alpine SPR-60C Type-R.

Well, your rig wont explode or anything, but you WILL lose volume with 4ohm speakers, Most will say they dont because they simply put the volume louder. The problem is that the OEM speakers will start to distort at a certain point. New 4ohms will be able to take more power and have more clarity, thus, you can crank the volume higher. However, at a fixed volume (say 17 on the headunit) the 4ohms will have lower volume than the OEMs. Lets say the OEMs can go to a max of 22 before they sound like crap, the new speakers will probably eat 25 before they distort. If your priority is volume followed by clarity, you want 2ohm speakers. If its clarity then volume, you can use 4ohm.

They're terrific for the $. Install was extremely easy and the sound quality and volume are definitely better IMO. I'd definitely recommend.
