Ok, my bass is just about where I want it to be and the next step to my system is highs and lows. I go to look on the internet to see what i should buy and realize I know exactly nothing about it. I have about 300$ to work with and I need a set of coaxials, and some door speakers (I think). I have an x-cab truck (97 gmc sierra). So given the 300$ budget for spkrs and amp, help me out???

do you want a component set or are you looking for coaxials, or are you gonna use coaxials for reare fill and then put comps in the front doors?

It really isn't necessary to have rear speakers in order to have a great system. You may be better off devoting the entire $300 to front components, an amp, and possibly deadening the doors.

But if you do feel the need to have rear speakers, I would only devote a small amount of money to them. Something like this might be okay:
