Ok, this is an odd question and I'm going to try to phrase it so that it makes sense..

Lets say, I have a component set up front in my car. When I run the amp to that component set, the amp sees a load of 4 ohms, right.

So, are each of the speakers 4 Ohms and the crossover changes the total load to 4 Ohms, or are each of the speakers 2 Ohms ( Series ) or 8 Ohms ( Parallel ) and the inside of the crossover determines the wiring configuration.

The reason I ask is because I want to know what would happen if I added additional speakers wired into my current crossover.

My tweeter and woofer of my component can be driven seperately. So, if I run one channel into the woofer input and also into the tweeter input, but I have two tweeters wired in series coming out of the tweeter output, then I have a total load of 2.67, right

4 Ohms ( woofer ) + 8 Ohms ( tweeters ) = 2.67 Ohms total

Is this correct?

Hope that made sense?
