If I connect the midbass to the crossover but not the tweeter, will that fark up the impedance of that channel? Say the component (here a Polk DB5250) is rated at 4 Ohm, do both the mid and the tweeter need to be connected to the crossover to achieve that impedance?

I want run one full component in the front doors of my truck but only the mids of another component set in the rear.

It wont mess anything up. A crossover splits the signal between the speakers so impedance never comes into play.

It won't be a problem. To test it, hook up a DMM to the crossover's connection while the speaker is connected and read the OHM's...
