connect 4ohm speaker to 6ohm amp, how can I set the crossover ?

Do not mod the crossovers. There is nothing you can do to turn a 4 ohm speaker into a 6 ohm speaker. You should contact the receiver mfr and ask if it can safely be used with 4 ohm speakers. You might be ok as long as you keep your volume low. If not, you can try adding a 2 ohm resistor in series with the speaker, but then you'll be losing amplifier power.

What kind of receiver? I have an onkyo and I did just what Gene suggested--contacted the manufacturer and they said it's fine with 4 ohm speakers. I had planned to add a separate power amp but as long as Onkyo said it was OK I just left things as-is.
