New stereo question

3086 Views 17 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Frontier14
I have 2011 S model truck with factory radio. I want to replace just the HU, and keep the factory speakers which I understand are 2 ohm. I bought a Pioneer HU, but after reading in it's owners manual the stern warning about not connecting speakers with less than 4 ohms, I am returning it. Does anyone have a suggestion for a 2 ohm HU, either single or double Din?

One solution would be to connect a 2 ohm power resistor in series with each of the stock speakers.

1. It'll give you a nice 4 ohm load that will make your head unit happy.
2. It's cheap.
3. It's easy.

1. You'll be wasting half of your HU's power in the resistors - which means that your system won't play as loud.
