I have got Diamond 6.5 separates up front and they come with their own passive crossover. Should I also xover at the amp (100HZ maybe) or run the amp full range?


X-over the amp 100-120hz (high pass) if you have a sepatare amp with a subwoofer.
If not run it at full range.

If you crossover the amp using a high pass filter at 120 hZ, you're going to block a lot of the frequencies for your 6.5's. You should set it closer to 80hz, for a nice blend from your subs to your componets. Setting it at 80hZ, will cut out the frequencies below that, so your amp wont waste power on it. Ideally, you should find out what your passive crossover frequency is set to, and set your amp just slightly below that. (like 3-5 hz) so they get the full signal they want to send through to your mids first.
