Ok I got a new car and I am getting ready to add new speakers.

I am set on hertz hsk165 or 163

on eather set they are going to get around 100 WATTS each ch

the 2 ways are cheaper and bolt in

the 3way I have to make something for the 3in

how much differance in sound is there is it worth all of the hassel to go 3way

I've only heard the 2way set which to me sounds really nice for the price.
I heard that the 3way isnt much better.

Where would the two ways / three ways go?

they look good,
Try the 3ways out & let us know
I did hear the new 2ways & thought the mids sounded really nice.
the tweeter is ok, to me.

I would stick with 2 way. Its easier to setup and in your case, a lot less hassle since you can bolt it in (no fabrication). Try the 2 way and see how you like it. I have heard 3-ways that sound great but its a LOT more work to get things right. More amps, more wiring, more crossover frequencies to mess with, etc. Keep it simple.

why Hertz? Alpine Type X are better to me.

I'd have to say no to that kevin but I guess each person has a different pair of ears for a reason :). To answer the OP, it really depends on you man... It you feel like you can properly set up the 3 way set, it will yield spectacular results.. At the same time, if you don't, it will sound exponentially worse.
