i'm using some existing towers and replacing the junk speakers with some off shelf ones from partsexpress. I want to get a passive crossover, not sure which one yet, and the towers each have two 6.5" drivers and one tweeter.

So if i got say a 2 way passive xover and each speaker is 4 ohms including tweeter, if i were to say wire the two 6.5's in either parallel or serial, would the amp see the calculated ohms as all 3 combined or would the crossover effect the load and the amp still see just 4 ohms regardless of wired config or number of speakers?

I just want to know if the crossover effects the load so i don't blow my reciever, which is 3 ohm rated btw. I need to use 2 mids and 1 tweeter each 4 ohms, so i wanted to make sure i wire them correctly. Any suggestions on best way to wire them?
