As always, great information. Thanks.

BTW, I have MY01 with a basic M490 system. I added the rear shelf OEMs a yr ago.

Had I been thinking, I could have answered Q1 myself since I wired the OEMs into the radio and not the amp. Guess I'm excited about actually getting some sound out of this location and my excitment must have "impeded" my brain.

But I have 1 more question. The current setup is parallel. I have not seen any 3.5s with more than 4 ohms. With 2 4 ohm spkrs per side, the parallel formula says I have impedence of 2. The manual says a min of 4 is required. If I do a little snipping and soldering, I get 8 if I turn it into series. I'm assuming that's what I should do, but what are the consequences of leaving it at 2?

I'll hang up and listen to your response.
