I say you would likely be better off with 2 tweeters... 4 just causes all kinds of nutty c2c issues and comb filtering...

I've always been a strong supporter of only 2 speakers (front) if you are after SQ... however if ya want more spl -- the more speakers the better... you can always fade front I guess for SQ and center it when you want it louder or if there are rear passengers :)

yeah since they each have tweeters in them already dont bother putting a pair of 1" ones in the dash? is that what im getting here? and also should i invest in bass blockers? i want my 2 eclipse subs to take care of the bass

you don't need 'bass blockers' your amp has adjustable highpass filters (a much better version of the typical bass blocker) -- 'bass blockers' are normally 1st order filters that don't do that much good till under the resonant frequency of the driver (big impedance peak)... unless the peak is corrected for and thatís never seen on crappy passive filters you get off ebay ;)
