    I assume youre talking about an active unit. If so, you wont be able to with that amp. An active x-over crosses the frequency going into an amp channel (i.e. front or rear). For this to work you would need dedicated channels for each tweeter and each mid. If you ran front speakers only you would bi-amp your components by running the tweets off the front channels and the mids off the rears. The x-over would cross the input to the front at say 3500+ Hz and the rears at 3500- Hz.

    I guess you could if you ran all 4 tweeters off the 2 front channels and all 4 mids off the rear 4 channels but this would sound like crap having the rears as high as your fronts.

    I suggest either using the passive units that came with the speakers or dumping the rear speakers and bi-amp the fronts. Or you can always buy another 4 channel amp.
