So Ive been enjoying my cheaply tweaked bose stereo, 'upgraded' tweeters and snipped bose wire for a good while.... does the job for me.
See:
http://audisrs.com/ftopic12903-0-0-asc-.php

Now, however, one of the front Bose woofers is starting to crackle, so before I put a wanted add for yet another 15 year old speaker.....

Does anyone have any good front speaker upgrades? I believe the Bose system needs 2 Ohm speakers which drastically reduces the selection of my usual favourites.

Im sure Ive used 4ohm speakers on a 2 ohm system before but mean I should upgrade the back too to at least keep the resistance even....

Part of me wants to rip it all out and start from scratch with amps and replacement sub.... but lets be realistic..... I was happy with the way it was so just need a front speaker.... You can see the internal conflict!!

Any good recommendations?

This looks like a reasonable step:

Im liking the look of these... 2 ohms too:

I think its Infinity who do some Kappa 2ohm speakers. Up the size a little bit from the measly 4 while your doing it.

I don't think it will be too much of an issue if you run 4 tbh. All you might find is that they won't go quite as loud with the same output from the amp.

Only just got round to fitting these last night....  Wow.  Epic,  what an improvement.  Was a squeeze to get the crossovers in,  had to attach them to the window mechanism,  and need to make my own method of attaching the tweeters as they are bigger than and one.

Wish I'd done it ages ago,  really covers up the rest of the systems inadequacy!  I'm using it with the bose wire snipped too,  and found I needed to turn the bass down a click of two which means the rest of the system gets an easier life too!
