You can't; it will change the crossover point.

If you wire them in parallel, you would double the crossover point, making a large gap between the mids and tweets.

If you wire them in series, you would cut the crossover point in half, and possibly ruin your tweets.

Pick your poison.

Why would you want to run two sets of 28mm tweeters, with one set of 6 1/2mids??
what is the rms rating on you amp??
are you looking for SQL.

so i quess you want SPl ?
most of your vocals come from your mids, so by adding another set of tweeters wont make it much more louder.
where do you have your tweeters mounted @.
if your tweeters are mounted down low, maybe you can mount them higher on your door panels or even in your pillars.

So what are my other options? I already bought the tweets since I was told by dd I could run 2 pairs off each crossover.

Can I use a bass blocker and run the tweets off the rear channel of the deck. Maybe use as rear fill ?

What would you guys do? I don't wanna damage any of my gear.

You shouldn't bother adding the 2nd pair of tweeters.

Completely unnecessary and a PITA to make sound decent. Stupid idea.

And as mentioned; you wouldn't want to add them to the same crossover. Changing the xover point is no good.
