I could always go active using the xover on the Alpine 345:
Ch 1/2: TN52
Ch 3/4: KP100 4" & KBE165

Running two tweeters on the same pasive crossover will result in a change of resistance and therefore a change in the crossover frequency, if it goes to low it might damage the tweeter. Active would be the best way to go.

When bought my 100kp I didn't know that they work better off axis.

I'm going to have one set in the kicks and one in the a pillars.

I would rather use the existing tweets but plugging the hole in the existing kicks is the issue.

I don't mind more treble.

There's your answer zzzzzzzzzz
