    That should work fine.

    Well that didn't last very long,i fryed the 4x6's and the tweeters after about 3 months.
    Then you did something very wrong.

    do the tweeters need there own channels?
    No

    bass blockers?
    Well, they definitely need highpassed at a rather high frequency (probably no lower than 2khz, maybe higher depending on the tweeter and what role you have it playing in your stereo). A simple capacitor can achieve this if you didn't have a crossover for them already.

    Your 4x6 will likewise need to be highpassed, but at a somewhat lower frequency (probably in the 80-125hz region). Easiest to use the crossover on the amp for this.


    Well, #1 problem would be if you didn't have either of them highpassed. #2 problem could possibly be that you were clipping your amp.
