I'd forget about putting in rear speakers
and if you do, not pyramid

EDIT
Also for your front speakers a component set would be better
Amazon has some Phoenix Gold RSD components for $40 i believe.. great speakers for that price

Not having a rear fill is better for sound stage and imaging, so no it wont hurt sound quality. However, SQ really depends on how and what you are using the speaker for.

ok thank you so if i got that setup without the rear speakers i can bridge the front speakers on that amp (if i have been reading correctly) right? And is that all i would need to get for everything to work and to self install?

I would get components in the front. Those tweeters make the sound so much clearer. Instead of buying those Kenwood, I would buy the JVC from Walmart for $40 instead. Spend about $10 and get some tweeters. I had these sets and the JVC is so much cleaner sound.
I don't know where you live but I live in Fullerton, CA and recently bought some 10" Phoenix Gold clearance sub from Fry's for about $25. If you live near me, I'll let you have one for the price I bought. I bought 2 and only need one.

im pretty sure this guy isnt to concerned with staging with this set up

if you wanna run rear speakers do it, nothing wrong with it

The clarion head unit will work fine

You'll need Front, Rear, and Sub. Although some amps only have Front and Rear inputs, those model take from those signals for the sub. Also i would go with the Clarion. Clarion is much more of a reputable company then Dual. BTW, i don't think he's wasting his money. He's just alittle misinformed about car audio. There's nothing wrong with that. No one waste's money upgrading their cars no matter what they do. It's all about what you want and get out of it.
