    Also I noticed some people are recommending 6X9 subs while others mentioning regular 6X9 speakers. It's my understanding that good 6X9 speakers with good power from the amp can provide decent (not earth shaking) bass. My concern is that 6X9 subs won't offer much range of sound from the rear except bass and will require more power...

    I have Boston coaxials on HU power for rear fill and they're as loud as my front 5.25 components on 60 watts. They play down to 45 hz with decent volume too.

    So, yes you can find 6x9s that play low and take some power.
