The tweeter and midbass both wire to the crossover, should be marked as such...and you wire the input on the crossover to your amplifier.

Running a seperate line to the midbass and tweet happens when you're actively bi-amping them...

We weren't born knowing how to do this, while I've seen some horrible questions on here, this one isn't one of them :)

To me, not very good...but that's just IMO.

most people say to run only front speakers (for imaging purposes). you want to run 2 sets of components. the reason he said it will sound bad is because all imaging is gone when rears are used. IMO you'd be better to save a little cash and just get the one set and see how you like it. i think you'll be happy, but i'm not you.

what do you mean imaging will be gone
so you think i should just get a front set and power thos with like a 350.2 kicker amp

what car?

yes that would work just fine. just watch the gain setting on the amp with that front comp/amp combo.
