i am running a pair of focal K2P 6.5" components in the front. i was wondering what to run in the rear. should i use components, coaxs or independant midbass speakers paired with smooth sounding tweeters ( bullets, silk dome or titanium).

x2..rear fill=no importante except when you have passengers, then you can fade to the rear a little

either none, or something simple on HU power.

When I switched to comps up front, I junked the rear fill completely.

I personally like a little bit of rear fill in many applications. Not enough to know where it is coming from, but just something about it sound better to me. In my truck, I can't tell my rear speakers are doing anything but it sounds better to me than all faded to the front. Mine are stocks hooked to HU. I run mine faded to the front about 3-5 clicks.

If they are filler, ( as I use mine) there isn't allot of sence in spending big $ / effort back there as you won't be able to really appreciate them. Havign said that, I tend to like Coaxials with just a bit more mid base than my front comps ( which I keep HPF'd). That way they compliment but don't compete with my front set-up. I'd say pick a decient set of $50-$100 coaxials to your specs and be done with it.
