i have a set of image dynamics CXS64 running on my front doors. one the read door speakers i have a low end pionner set running off the head-unit .

i would like to add an old set of tweeters i have from my CTX65CS in the rear of the vehicle, but i dont want to add another crosover.

is it safe to have one crossover run two tweeters"?
can i run a crossover set with just the tweeters running / mo mid range connected?

no, that is not safe to add tweeters to a crossover.

when you add tweeters you change the impedance which changes the crossover point - which can result in blown tweeters.

yes, you can run a crossover without the mid connected.

or you can mosey on over to Parts Express and easily make your own tweeter crossover, or just buy a premade one.
