Hello guys, I'm a newbie and I don't understand the speaker impedance rules well. I wanted to ask you: My amp output impedance is 6-16 ohm and I want to feed it to speaker cabinet that consists of two 4-ohm mid speakers and one 8 ohm tweeter. Is it possible to do it without damaging the amp or speakers? And if it is, what is the best way to wire them? 
(The amp has 5 channels and 100W per channel)
Thanks for your help!

Mids in series to one channel, tweeter on another.
Make sure you've got a crossover in place, or the tweeter will not last long.

Sounds like a home theater amp.
If the 4ohm mids are wired in series and there is a passive crossover between those and the tweeter then the box has an 8ohm impedance overall and is safe to connect to your amp.. 1 box per channel.
