Default Component Crossover for Sub and Tweeters?

I am new to the car audio world and I have just finished my first project. I installed two 12 inch subwoofers and an amp in my 2016 Camaro with Bose System. I'm now thinking I want to play around with adding tweeters behind the driver's seat (unpopular decision...Ik... but It would be cool to test). Anyway, I'm an idiot and bought a monoblock amplifier for my subs. It is an 1100 watt max amplifier with 825watt RMS @2ohm. See specs below.

Here is my question... what is the easiest/cheapest way to add two tweeters to my system. Is it possible to just use a passive component crossover and install it after the amp and connect the sub and tweeters to that? Or will that overpower the tweeters? Add another amp? Get a two channel amp? There is probably a better solution. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum!

I relocated your new thread to to the most appropriate forum, should get some good answers here. The analog forums are primarily for home hi-fi.

Hello Sai.

Congrats on your sound purchase, however, i would recomed you go for a 4 channel amp, 2 channels can be used for your subs and 2 channels for your tweeters.

the monoblock will work with your subs but the perfect recepie for dissaster is to connect tweeters to a monoblock.

tweeters dont present a huge load to an amp, so if you dont want to spendany more moola, u can experiment connecting the tweeters to the head unit direct.

You can't connect the tweeters at your new amp, because you must to set the low-pass crossover for your sub.
For to install the tweeters you need another amp.
You can take an amp with high-pass or it's possible to buy the tweeters with passive crossovers included.
