definitely. i was just trying to find a way to help out the very bottom end of the midrange to blend with the sub. With 5.25" components it'* tough even with good crossovers to get trunk bass sounding like it'* coming from up front... Omni-directional my a**...
I had 6.5 components in fiberglass kicks and 1 12" sealed in the trunk of my other car and it was still quite a trick. I ended up crossing the midranges at 80Hz 12db/octave, and the sub at 85Hz, 24db/octave and it came out alright. That was a real budget system and I chose to go with no rear fill which hurt the midbass response a lot. This time I am definitely using 4 channels
Which reminds me, I really like these Diamond Audio M6'* I saw. They seem like a great deal. The crossover has an 8ohm rear fill output so your rears are automatically blended at -3db, and it doesn't adversely affect the impedence the amp gets. I love things that make life easier...
