Most people that try only running front speakers end up liking that arrangement. It keeps the soundstage up front where its supposed to be. If you want some 6x8 though, heres 2 suggestions:

If you want rearfill, my suggestion is to get some adapter plates to fit 6.5s. Round speakers naturally have a little less distortion(compared to the equivalent oval). lowpass whatever you put in there to keep the high frequencies out and that will not pull the soundstage back as far and you will still have that feeling of being surrounded by sound. This looks like a nice deal on ebay if you catch it in time: http://cgi.ebay.com/ORION-MID-SET-UP-AWESOME_W0QQitemZ5809309346QQcategoryZ32819QQrdZ1Q QcmdZViewItem

I have the eclispe 6x9" 3-ways that sound good. Those would be a good buy for you. I am sure the 6x8" will sound about the same.
