Either way I hate Bose systems but compared to other Bose systems i heard in other manfs cars this sounds the best. (for all I know the OEM speakers are gone havent checked my car was modded by someone who knew a couple things about these cars)
The factory wiring does a simple "Y" split in the door before it goes to the tweeter and speaker (parallel load). The non-bose (Panasonic) speakers are 4-ohm, and I would assume the bose speakers are as well, but since they're bose, they don't generally produce tech specs, and whatever sweatshop in a 3rd-world country probably would have charged an extra half a cent to print "4 ohm" or "2 ohm" on the speaker, they're not going to cut into their profits by doing something like that.
Non-bose (Panasonic) on the left, bose with the puny magnet on the right:
So if the door speakers are also 4 ohm, it'd be a 2 ohm load + resistance of wiring, so somewhere between 2 and 3 ohms would be seen by the factory amp. The bose amp is 5 channels for the sedan, and 6 channels for the coupe.
