Does your head unit have a high pass filter? If so you should be able to modify the settings so it doesn't send any bass audio to the speakers.

The possible bass filter on your amp is not a setting. It's a wiring option.
A higher bass cut off would still be fed to your bass speakers.


A two way or three way would be a speaker that has a speaker component for each range and it's own way of handling filtering so that the right frequency range is fed to the right speaker. So it gets a full signal fed to it. If it's fed by a signal that has already been filtered or cut off it will sound like a clock radio.

Lookup amplifier crossover by searching bing or google.

And you may want to look at the side of Alpine amp...
