Components in parallel?

Ok here's what I got. Two sets of PPI DCX 650s (Precision Power 6 1/2 Components). Since I got 2 sets I'd like to have one set in factory location (92 Civic doors) and put the other set in Q-logic kick panel enclosures. I plan to run them off an Orion HCCA 225. Here's the question: Can I parallel these speakers from one crossover? (2 tweeters and 2 woofers crossed from one crossover) Or can I hook up the speakers normally (one tweet/woof per crossover) and hook both sets of wires at the amp? And would this setup achieve a 2 ohm load? (actually these speakers are 3 ohm, so I guess a 1.5 ohm load- most of you know hcca 225 can easily handle 1.5 ohm load). I'm not sure if the crossover can handle the kind of amperage to run 2 tweets/woofers from one crossover. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

load doesn't matter to the crossover. only the amount of power it is rated to handle.
you should be fine.
