It’s well known that factory car audio systems simply aren’t good enough in the long run. Even speakers in a luxury car may not provide the right enough oomph for your drive. Many audio manufacturers don’t make it easy to directly replace your OEM without having to overhaul the entire setup. 

A quick search for car speakers reveals a plethora of 4-Ohm systems. While the most common impedance for a car speaker, their resistance means less power is flowing to the unit. Say your current OEM system has 2-Ohm speakers that draw 100W – when these are replaced with 4-Ohm speakers, that power drops to 50W. The lower the impedance, the greater flow of energy that can run from the car stereo into the speakers.

A higher impedance speaker is useful for energy efficiency, to drive the equipment using less power. In theory, this means additional speakers can be added to the amplifier and head unit. In practice, the sound system could not be drawing enough energy to run the speakers at their full potential.

The “standard” 4-Ohm is not a worse speaker. The desire for a 2-Ohm system allows more power to flow from your head unit, or an amplifier. This means better volume, better quality and the oomph you want out of your car audio. 

The NVX V-series 2-Ohm speakers were developed as a response to this issue. The NVX VSP65 and NVX VSP69 are the audiophile’s solution to an easy switch from a subpar OEM to a high fidelity sound system without costing you undue time and money. 

These NVX sets are comprised of 2-Ohm 6.5” or 6×9” component speakers, 1” Dome Tweeters, and two adjustable crossovers were developed as a direct solution to an aftermarket installation. A 2-Ohm component system like this, with two midwoofers and the two tweeters, allows for a more robust frequency range – better highs and clearer mid-range. 6.5” and 6.9” speakers can produce bass as low as 70Hz. 

The kit comes with two adjustable crossovers to divide and send the signals to the correct channels – keeping the speakers from working overtime on frequencies they’re not meant to produce. Each crossover comes with 0dB to – 3dB switch to take the edge off any extreme highs. 

The NVX VSP65 and NVX VSP69 are not just a quick fix for OEM replacement. The V-series are constructed with the same high quality materials we’ve come to expect from NVX, making them a choice quality replacement system for any level of audiophile. 

The midwoofer cones are made with polypropylene – popular due to their low distortion and its inability to absorb moisture. Silk, known for its strength, is utilized in the tweeters for high power handling while maintaining sound fidelity. 

Consider 2-Ohm speakers for your car audio – open up the possibilities with a system that delivers. 

Note that the standard sizing of the speakers in the VSP65 and 69, there can be small manufacturer variations in the speaker spaces of the car. Check the vehicle manual for any specification insights and visit the Sonic Electronix installation page for spacers or adapters and any tools needed to get the speakers in and the sound rolling.
