Hi all, so my car has an issue where the speakers needed to be replaced based on the sound sounding very low in a way and faded and the rear didn't have no sound coming out. I went and took the car to get checked out and the mechanic said the speakers were blown out and he replaced them. After he did, then he mention that I needed to get the car radio replaced because now the front passenger and rear have the loudest vol but the driver can barely hear it. Now I don't anything about car/audio like that so not sure if he's speaking facts or just trying to make me pay for more and not do a decent job putting the speakers in and fixing the problem.

Bose speakers?
Basic radio comes with cheapies.
Upgraded radios/ bose.

There is something different with bose. I think their impedance values are different.

I didn't see that anyone responded to this guy. If he checked the resistance of his speaker without disconnecting at least one of the leads from the rest of the circuit, then he was not only reading the resistance through the speaker, but also through the rest of the vehicle (i.e., back into the radio/amplifier) and this would be in parallel with his speaker resistance, so his 1 ohm reading would not surprise me.
