I'm no pro, but I'm not quite sure it would work so well that way.
Yes, this is exactly what I'm proposing.
I don't have a crossover but I figure anything that diminishes lower frequencies from hitting the tweeters will work just fine. So instead of dishing out for a crossover, I was just going to run some capacitors in-line with the tweeters.
But as it turns out I decided NOT to use the rear channels to power some tweeters.
Since I'm adding an amp to a factory system, the rear speaker signal will instead be serving as the audio signal into the speaker-level input on the amp.
If I add tweeters down the road, I'll just attach it to the front speaker signal from the headunit with 2-way crossovers.
