Yep, pretty much.

I have a set of Focal Utopia 6.5" components to run from the 4 channel amp. The mids are going in the front doors, tweeters in the A pillars. Having the woofer and tweeter so far apart can cause some issues, so to compensate I'll need to be able to do separate time alignment for both the left/right and between the mid/tweeter, which is why each component needs a dedicated channel.
