Most car speakers are 4 ohms, but recently audio manufacturers have been going to2-ohm speakers. Well, if you have an older head unit or amp and want to add newer 2-ohm speakers, just add two speakers wired in series, or end- to-end (negative to positive, positive to negative). If you have older 4-ohm speakers and your new head unit wants to see 2-ohms, just wire the two speakers up in parallel (all negatives together, all positives together).
