Be sure to check the amp's capability because not all of them can handle a 2.2 ohm speaker very well. The lower the speaker impedance, the more current your amp will have to provide at a given power. The amp specs will usually mention 2 ohm loads specifically if it can handle it.

Thanks for the recognition guys... Happy to be of help. But there are also some good chaps filling in some much needed gaps with great clarity!

Ive done several car stereo installs and built an audiophile system in my car recently. Nothing too crazy. Next up may be a fairing kit just like this... Especially if I move to North Carolina (going to check out Raleigh this weekend). Ive been quite envious of some of the places you guys/gals are spoiled with. Where i live its 30+ minutes of riding just to get away from the cacophony of metro NY noise

Raleigh County still has a lot of sub division type living. I know Big and Small places are relative to what you are used to. Raleigh would be moving to a BIG place for me. I have never been NY and do not know but by the way you are talking this would be a change to a smaller place.

1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 (First Bike)
2004 Vulcan 1500 Classic (First Big Bike)
2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)
Who would have thought I would grow up to become "Spatially Educated" and play Connect-the-Dots for a living.
