Default Can multi-way co-axial car speakers be connected in series?

Hello all,

For the purpose of impedance matching or power handling, is it recommended to connect the multi-way (2/3/4-way) co-axial car speakers in series or in parallel? Especially in series?
Will the built-in cross-over interact and thereby affect the frequency response?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

You can do it. The crossovers are parallel elements within each speaker.
