Great thread, thanks to everyone for posting.

I'm looking to upgrade the speakers without adding a new AMP, has anyone measured the stock impedance? Is it 2 Ohms?

Thank you!

Has anyone replaced the 4 speakers been satisfied without adding a sub?
I investigated this approach and decided it wasn't worth it. I measured the stock speakers as amazingly flat down to 50 Hz with usable extension down to 40 Hz. Short of a much larger speaker in a large enclosure it would be difficult to do better than that.

Note, I'm talking about frequency response at moderate SPL only.
