switching from 4 ohm to 2 ohm at a later date

Hey guys I have the stock deck in my 02 and it works fine, I'm planning on using the Hogtunes amp and speaker kit with speaker lids. I'm not a huge HI-FI guy so this should suffice for me.

Question is will this be a poblem when I upgrade my deck at a later date? Is there many 4 ohm radio options to choose from? Should I upgrade to a 2 ohm deck now?

If you're using an amp, the impedance (ohms) of the stereo isn't what you need to be worried about, it's more important to match the amp and speakers.

Why do they sell a 2 and 4 ohm amp and speaker kits then?

I guess you can say it's because of design changes over the years, when I first became involved with audio 8 ohms was the best thing going, lol.
