Should I purchase one? Will they be necessary? If I do, I would want a fosgate 400-4 or a fosgate prime 300-4. What *preferably JL, Fosgate, or Kicker* comps should I get if I do? thanks.

look around before you decide to buy jl, fosgate or kicker comps, yes having a nice set of speakers will & can make a difference.

if your set on those brands,( i would keep looking) make sure you use either the JL zr line or kicker ss line. Whats your budget? I would reccomend these:):)

4 what? Not 4 comp sets, right?

1 comp set for the front and coax in the rear.

not gonna get very good stuff for $120

but if your using the HU power, not gonna be much anyways.

Look into the SPS-600C on ebay, can be had for $79 bucks BNIB, and then find some coaxes for the rear, same speakers just not component for like $40

My max for an amp is 150. I will spend 130 on speakers. I've seen T1 speakers on ebay for 50 bucks before.

I can get a used P400-4 for 150 or a Prime 300/4 brand new for around 150-160

I don't have any JL, Fosgate, or Kicker recommendations in your price range (240 toatal for 2 pair).

A typical sub stage plays mainly around 20-120 Hz (& thats being generous), thats ~100 of the ~20,000 Hz distinguishable to the human ear. Having a good comp set/front stage is important, as it will handle the majority of the music you hear.
Music is recorded in stereo (2 channels, L/R). Meaning, rear speakers are playing the same information as the fronts. Rear fill is not needed whatsoever. I'd suggest putting all of your budget up front in one pair of comps. If you must have rear fill, your stock speakers on hu power would suffice.

I'd look into these sets within your budget...

I will always have friends in the back, so they need some bass relief too.
