    I think i know what you are attempting to do but it depends on how your crossover is wired, Speakers made to be bi-amped or tri-amped have seperate crossovers electrically isolated from one another and use jumpers at the terminals to connect them so one amp can be used (this is called a parrallel crossover configuration). In your case if you only have one pair of terminals on the rear then chances are it may not be a parrallel but a series or a combination series/parrallel configuration. in which you would need to completely rewire the crossover to electrically isolate each driver and most likely ruin a competent crossover design. (you dont mention the speakers so its hard to say). Please...put the soldering gun down slowly and back away...slowly... let the amps and speakers live!

    Go from the preamp to an active crossover 3 way stereo you can mono the sub if you want.This splits the signals to low,med,high. DBX makes cheap ones to very high end. then to 3 amps then to the 3 speakers. each speaker gets its own amp.
