What will be the best way for me to pwr my 20mids from my amp.
the amp buts out 150RMSX4. 2CH is being used for subs the other 2 is being used for my front componets. aside from the tweeters and Mid drivers from the componets, i also have a 4inch mid speakers in my door panels which were orginally equip with the car. ill like to power them some how some way.

they are 20watt's HK Mids.

How can i power them without blowing them or without a crossover.

thanx

why do you want to run the factory HK mids? you want separate crossover and gain control. you can acheive this passively by building your own bandpass crossover network with a L-pad.

when two drivers separated by a distance play the same frequency, you get lobing and other phase interference issues which will cause an unnatural and uneven sound. the quality and tonal differences will also be apparent.

if you need to attenuate the signal to the HK mids that much, they won't be very audible or noticable.

Maybe you could power them from the head unit and make your own passive crossover network with pieces from Parts Express:
