Default Impedance Question

Sorry for the dumb question... would anyone know off the top of their head what a single 6 ohm wired to a single 2 ohm would make for a final nominal load?

Thanks!

for my interior speakers... i'd like to try n run a set of coax's from JBL in the rear and also a set of tweeters (with their own crossovers).

side note.. i already have the tweeters laying around, and the JBL's i can get for dirt cheap through a buddy.

does the cross over for the have a mid out put? I'm not sure how well it going to sound because if you set your amp crossover to run your coax as mids than I'm not sure how well your tweets will sound with a limited signal from the amp.

What I plan on doing is running the tweeters through the crossover then run wires from the coax to the amp and splice them @ the amp. The coax are also made by JBL (2-way)

I just wanna be sure I'll be okay on the amp splicing a 2 ohm and 6 ohm together

I would think either 2ish or 8ish depending on the way you wire them...
