The ohms are not as critical as often made out to be, 4 or 8 will work ok. The 4 will play slightly louder at max volume , the 8 will sound less distorted but slightly less max volume. The main thing is getting a high quality hi watt speaker that will not warp ; Japanese speakers very good, like Panasonic or Sony, Kenwood, from that auto radio place on line . Usually have to buy two…Boxed that way.
I usually buy the mid price one do not need the fancy stuff , tweeters etc on AM ; if a rear speaker, both F and B should be same ohms . If a single speaker now, it will have a jumper in a 4 pin socket or in the plug , varies, (for rear speaker) leave all that alone as it is
Hope that helps….sometimes have to mess with bolt holes.
I need a correct ohm 5x7 radio speaker for my 58 D front I/panel. Any advice on this?
