Default Help with infinity RS5001's

I picked up a pair of infinity RS5001's that somebody was getting rid of today but they are missing the woofers. I want to drop in a pair of drivers to get these up and running again. I'm sure they arent the best speakers, but from what I understand they are from the old school line of infinity speakers and are pretty decent.

Heres my problem, according to the infinity site these are 6 ohm speakers. Would I need a 4 or 8 ohm replacement woofer?

I'm trying to do things cheaply, any recomendations would be appreceated

they are a 3 way design right? Pretty hard for anyone to anwser your question without seeing a schematic of the xover but why don't you just contact infinity.

I've owned vintage infinities, and have friends, and we got the info we needed to restore our speakers from them. They will try and sell you replacement woofers of their own making but I'm not a fan of their poly cone woofers.

There are also a couple of sites devoted to vintage speakers including Infinity. just google for them.

I will say the old infinities I've owned had 8 ohm woofers wired out of phase with the mid.
