Default mids & highs opinions please.

I just got bit by the black Friday bug and made a rather impulse buy. So I bought 4 4 ohm crescendo neo mids. And 2 8 ohm f1 crescendo tweeters. My thoughts prior to this impulse buy were to run 2 mids per door wired to 2 ohm off channels 3 & 4.Then run 1 tweeter per door wired to 4 ohm together on channel 1 or 2. Then run either some coaxials or a set of cheaper components off the remaining channel for rear fill. Sounded good in my head. Lol! However channels 1 & 2 where the rear coaxials and front tweeters do not have independent crossovers for each channel. So I don't think this will work now. The amp I will be running these off of is a b2 audio quattro mkii. It is the older model. It's rated at 225 watts @ 4 ohm on channels 3 & 4 and 110 watts @ 4 ohms on channels 1 & 2. Does anybody have any input with what they would do in my situation? Sorry for the newb question. I've always just kept it simple and ran component sets in the past. Lol!.

I didn't read past the crescendo mid part but sell them and buy a better mid. You'll be better off with 2 quality mids than 4 of those. You'll be chasing your tail trying to make them sound good


Edit: don't worry about rear speakers

Just order the inline crossovers for the tweets.

Or better yet, don't worry about rear fill and just run one tweet on each channel.

The rear is a waste imo. Especially when running pro audio

Thanks for the input gentlemen! Much appreciated. The only thing I did was send crescendo and message to switch my tweeters to 4 ohm instead of 8. Then I will run 1 at 4 on each channel. Down the road if I can't live without rear fill I can just throw something in their and use the crossovers. Thanks again! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving!
