I was wondering if i should even buy a set of 6x9's for the rear deck, or should i just buy 2 sets of components.

not many people have components in their rear fill, usually just in the front but its mere preference... if your looking for a pair of 6x9's I have a pair of eclipse 8495's that I no longer need anymore. Used for a little over 2 weeks barely at all.

Ok, i was looking at kicker KS6.2 for the front and the Polk MOMO mmc 650. How are those speakers?

It kind of depends what type of music you listen to and what your looking for..

i have a pair of rockford fosgate 6x9s that i am very happy with. previously i had decided not to get subs and went for the 6x9s, which actually gave some bass. hah well i thought what i was hearing was bass untill i got my subs in. the 6x9s still add beautiful highs and mids to the music, and if you dont have subs, appropriate bass.
i dont even use the stock components in the front because they degrade the system as a whole. my opinion is that if your just looking for great quality focus on a nice pair of full-range 6x9s. hope this helps in your decision.

Why not just throw a pair of 6.5's in the back and only run them off the HU ? I have rear 5.25's in my jeep cherokee, and I cannot hear them from the front with them run off the headunit. They are only there for passengers.

well i have a 15" XXX running off a modded mtx 1501D @1ohm. So they drown out my stock speakers....just a little. All i listed to is rap, and it kinda bugs when i can hear the words. Why would someone prefer 6.5 components in the rear deck instead of a pair or 6by9's?
