welcome! just my quick opinion, Im running two sets of components in my doors and kicks (a pair in each) and used to have it wired on a 4ch amp, the doors got front signal and the kicks got rear signal... it sounded really weird. theres not a ton of separation between front/rear music that I've noticed, its mostly left to right. But there is enough of a difference that you wouldnt want speakers mounted close to eachother to run two different signals, you know? IF you were planning to bandpass the 6 1/2's to play just midbass (something like 80-160) then you'd be okay, but if you're gonna let em play up high I wouldnt recommend having them be on a rear channel.
BUT if you split the signal, or if your amp can duplicate the signal so all 4 channels are running the same signal, I think that'd be a pretty good way to go.
