A quick mockup I drew just to be clear, as I don't have much working electronics knowledge, according to the gentleman's calculation over on audio asylum.


Does this look correct?

I don’t see how this helps anything. The 12 ohm woofer is not going to get louder than it was. The amp will deliver a bit more power.

Oops, my bad. The A55G is 12ohm rather than 16.

I think you'll be ok with no modifications   to the XO    -take the DCR reading  of both -A55G  , they could be even lower than 12  Ohms -
