      Front door/Dash speakers

      Does anyone know how the front door and dash speakers are wired? Are they wired in series or parallel? I'm trying to decide between the MRX-F65/JL Audio JX500.1 or a Kicker KX800.5 for amplification. Correct me if I'm wrong, but running a 4ohm amp at 8ohm is easier on the amp, no? I'm just trying to balance out the amps for the much weaker 3.5" speakers vs. the by 9's.

      I'm ordering for the Dart:
      • KSC354 Front Dash Speakers
        KSC 694 Front/Rear Door Speakers
        Kicker CompD 8 4ohm woofer

      Can anyone confirm the rear 3.5s actually help in sound quality? If so, I'll order a second pair of KSC354s as well.

      TIA

      I don't have the rear 3.5's, but I do have kickers in the front dash. With the factory bass blockers removed you get easily 2.5x more sound up front. I would expect no less from doing the same to the rears. If you have the 9 speaker setup, don't forget that you have a third 3.5 in the front dash.

      I have the 6 speaker setup. I haven't heard back yet on my speaker order yet, so still in the theoretical phase and wondering if I'm going to destroy the 3.5 s or not...

      9 speakers, one sub.
      3 - 3.5's in the dash
      4 - 6X9's in the doors
      2 - 3.5's in the rear deck
      1 - 8" sub in the rear deck

      That makes it even more important to know how the front speakers are wired. Is the center speaker for the navigation?

      ...its for the "pro logic", isn't it?

      If ^^^ that is the case, I don't need that, so, not as important. I should have the speakers in a few weeks, tho.

      The amp is 100*[email protected] 2ohms, so, if I parallel (?) them together, front 3.5 and by9, rear 3.5 and by9, I get 50rms to each speaker... sounds like a plan!

      Didn't know there were bass blockers before the speakers. If taken out and stock speakers are left in what can one expect? Am assuming blown speakers or just real muddy bass? I have the six speaker system not the Alpine.

      according the the wiring diagram the dash speakers are spliced into the door speakers. so the front left and front right dash and door speakers are running off the same wire from the radio.

      The bass blockers are on the speaker's wire socket that the factory harness plugs into. I reused the socket from the stock speakers since I bought the wrong Metra harness and I cut out and soldered the bass blocker that was on the side of the socket.
