    does it make a difference if I use 2 channels of the amp for 2 ohm speakers and the other 2 for 4 ohm speakers if its 2 ohm stable?

    There should be no problem, but this is in general. read your manual.!

    same question here where did you got 2ohm speakers. maybe you mean plug 2 speakers in parallel on one side(ex right)

    infinity has several, they are the smaller components (tweeters and 3.5"), Never seen 2 ohm speakers , only subs. Not sure if that's correct but that's how crutchfield had them rated

    Do they have a web site? If they do you should be able to find the manual there.

    many high end manufacturers make 8 ohm speakers all the time...never heard of 2 ohm speakers...

    Infinity has them here are the specs on the specific spkrs he is referring to:

    Power Handling, RMS: 35 Watts
    Power Handling, Peak: 105 Watts
    Sensitivity: 95dB
    Frequency Response: 85Hz - 25kHz
    Mounting Depth: 1-9/16"
    Impedance: 2 Ohms

    • Plus One woofer cones - This patent pending technology deliver a cone with more surface area than competing models of the same size. The result is increased bass output and higher efficiency.

    • Woven glass fiber woofer cone material is extremely stiff, minimizing cone flex which yeilds very low distortion and improved clarity, an Infinity trademark.

    • SLI high-output design. Conventional 4-ohm speakers do not leverage allof the power available from today's car audio amplifiers and high-powered head units. This topology extracts every last watt from the amplifier source, increasing overall system output and efficiency.

    • Computer-optimized voice-matched outboard passive crossovers - Each Kappa multielement and component system features an outboard crossover that has been voice-matched using audiophile grade air core inductors and polypropylene capacitors. The result is flawless performance with incredible detail and accuracy

    • Adjustable tweeter level-Each Kappa multielement features a user adjustable tweeter level control. On the two-way models, simply rotate the tweeter to add or subtract 3dB output. On the three-way models, it is the simple push of a button right on the tweeter faceplate.
    Here is the manual for the speakers in pdf format. They all seem to be 2 ohm load speakers.

    I think all Kappas are 2 ohms and all References are 4 ohms

    Sorry Dave, but not according to Infinity's website.....you have it backwards...and they offer no 3 ohm speakers, just the normal 4 ohm and the 2 ohm.

    No, it shouldn't hurt at all. Just dont mix and match your front and rear channels. Running 2 ohm on the fronts and 4 ohm on the rear is perfectly acceptable. The curcitry for the fronts and rears are completely independent.
