Replacement speakers for your 2-ohm factory system

Some cars use low-impedance speakers to get a little more punch out of the factory radio. If you try to replace these speakers with standard 4-ohm aftermarket speakers, you'll notice a significant loss of volume — never a good thing — while 2-ohm replacement speakers have always been hard to find. Until now....

Replacement speakers for your 2-ohm factory system

Some cars use low-impedance speakers to get a little more punch out of the factory radio. If you try to replace these speakers with standard 4-ohm aftermarket speakers, you'll notice a significant loss of volume — never a good thing — while 2-ohm replacement speakers have always been hard to find. Until now....

These specially designed PowerBass L Series 2-ohm speakers will make the most of your factory power. Install these L2-522 5-1/4" car speakers, and you'll hear a big improvement in sound quality over your old factory speakers. Plus, their shallow mounting depth ensures they're a fit in a wide variety of vehicles too.

Step up to aftermarket quality

Say goodbye to flimsy factory woofers and whizzer cones. Sturdy yet sensitive polypropylene/carbon fiber woofers and butyl rubber surrounds deliver satisfying performance while enduring the extreme temperatures of life in your car doors. The 3/4" aluminum alloy dome tweeters bring the high range to life with the crisp detail that's been missing from your factory sound. Those highs are enhanced with a Wave Guide Lens that directs highs toward your ears for better stereo imaging and soundstaging. 

Note: PowerBass designed these speakers for use with a 2-ohm factory system. Call an advisor to confirm compatibility with your vehicle.

Just what I needed

I love the Power Bass speakers. They sound Great and make the factory speakers sound complete. They were just what I needed to maintain the loudness of my factory speakers and no decrease in sound with aftermarket speakers.

Pros: They sound Great

Cons: Non

They're fine.

They're just fine, the only 2 ohm alternatives for my vehicle. A far better choice than the blown out factory speaker.

Pros: 2 ohm impedance to match factory.

Cons: don't really fit well, saved by the adapters.

Awesome speakers if you have a 2 ohm system. Crutchfield says this does not fit the 1996 BMW Z3, but its fits like OEM. Great replacement for my blown stock speakers.

Q
Will they fit in the tour pack for a 2010 Harley ultra classic?
[ Jeremy  Jun 26, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
We do not have those listed as fitting that location... You would probably want to go with a motorcycle specific speaker, or a marine rated speaker since bikes have a higher chance of getting wet. One of our advisors would love to help you explore you options! https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx
