i just picked up a excelon kdc-x879 hu and a pair of infinity kappa 692.7i (6x9) speakers. all kappa speakers this year are 2 ohm's, even the little door speakers. will these 2 ohm (6x9) speakers work with my kenwood hu or will the hu amp overheat by to much current draw? thanks as iam am a newbie.
i agree, amping the speakers is gunna increase the SQ at all volume levels. Possible the most worthwhile upgrade to a car audio system if amping the speakers with a good amp.
i will add a good amp later, but for now money is tight. i just picked up the excelon hu and the kappa speakers and they were not cheap. right now i just want to use the speakers with the hu, but i dont want to fry the hu. will these 2 ohm kappa speakers work if i go easy on the volume, or will they over heat the hu. i dont want to kill the hu as it is brand new? i find it odd the whole kappa line is 2 ohm, i see many people will be just dropping these in with there factory radios without any thought of impedance loads. anyway i would like to know if it will work ok before i test it out. thanks again
i really dont think it will work, however the best bet is to either look in the manual to see if the HU can handle a two ohm load or call the manufacture to ask them as well. This way you'll know for sure, but like I said i dont think it is possible.
I think maybe one of the reasons Infinity did this is so that people will hopefully buy their amps when they buy their speakers...who knows?
