one would get a little more power out of a stock unit using 2ohm speaker as opposed to 4ohm yes? maybe its an "upgrade" for the sound system to get more sound out of it for cheap.

If the system is designed around a 4 ohm load then there not going to just chuck in 2 ohm speakers trying to get more out of it.
The deck would overheat and turn off and eventually blow up.
They would be maximised in every model.
I am unsure if the Omega has 2 ohm aswell , will check next time I get 1.
The doors are easy to get off.

Alot more pieces just clip in instead of being screwed in , they feel alot more flowing and I like the shape better but in 10 years time after being played with a few times there going to bits falling off and rattles everywhere I think.
There very easy to pull apart and work on though.

I really want to get 1 to bomb a big stereo in now just so I can sa I have !
Also be nice to be the first :)

Yeah, I agree. They must run the 2 x 2ohm in series. That would also explain the claimed "11 speaker stereo system" in the Calais and SSV.

The quality of the speakers looks to be an improvement over the VY/VZ but still wouldn't cut it IMO. I'll be replacing the speakers when I get mine.

KAL SPL - did you manage to see if the stock head unit has RCA outs?
