Ok so I did a little equipment refresh in my car after my head unit was stolen,
I have a monoblock D amp powering my 2 12's and an A/B 4 channel powering 4 coax, so I was thinking since I'm not using my head unit's amp at all, why not throw a pair of tweeters on there to help bring my sound stage up a bit higher. So can I safely power 1 pair of tweeters with the head unit's amp? Also does it make a difference in power if I connect 1 tweeter to front right and the other to rear left as opposed to just front right and left outputs?

Tweeters: Kenwood KFC-ST01 @ 160W peak (40W RMS @4ohm)

Connect them to either the fronts or the rear outputs. Make sure you use the supplied passive crossover.
