Audio specialist needed!

I have a 4 channel amplifier hooked up to replace my stock non-HK amp. My front left tweeter and front left mid-base are connected to the front left port on the amp. Somehow my tweeter is putting out bass and I don't want that to happen, because when I turn it up, the tweeter is giving out a lot of noise. By the way, I am using BSW Stage 1. Is there any way I can stop the bass? Thank you!

we need more info...what your saying is impossible, the problem lies in the way you wired it, so, provide pictures/diagrams.

Actually if you used the search button prior to installation you would have found your answer. The factory amp is a 10 channel amp. It filters each channel specifically for each speaker. So when you swapped the amp you are now sending full range to each speaker. In order to fix your problem you can do one of 2 things. Build your own passive crossover for each speaker. You can find everything you need (Most of the time) at radio shack or Ebay (Never Fails) Or buy some. Making your own crossover isnt that difficult if you are good with a soldering iron. But its gonna take a while. Buying 2 3-way and 2 2-way crossovers may be expensive. If you want to try your hand at building crossovers let me know. I can send you the link I use. It also has the calculators so all you have to do is plug in the actual impedence of the speaker and it will give you the values of the capacitor, inductor and/or resistor that you have to buy.
