    can I wire midrange speakers (no tweeters) directly to amplifier?

    This is a simple answer just havent done it before. I need to power 2 mids. Can i wire them to 4ohm and run them off a single channel of an amplifier w/o a crossover? Thanks

    Yes. But they will be playing full range unless you set up crossovers on your amp/processor/headunit. If you don't, they will not sound good at all unless this is for a full range application.

    midrange speaker is ment tobe used with a crossover, if hooked up with no crossover they'll last a few minutes i'd say

    go get an electronic 3way crossover or a 3way passive crossover. You could build your own with an inductor and a capacitor. So your answer is YES / NO You have stipulations. Tell us more abou what you want to do and what your budget is and what your equipment is and your addy and pics of your mom, sister, gf and gf's sis naked for more answers.
