Alright a couple months back i blew my 1 10" Kicker CVT, im finally about to replace the sub this week.

A CVT is gonna run me $70, I already have a box and a ZX400.1 to power it.

1 10" Kicker CVT (400 W rms) + Kicker ZX400.1 (400 w rms, monoblock)

so now im back at square one, and my system is in the original state of when i bought it.

now i wanna upgrade a little, first option.

do I add four new speakers, 2 4" KS400 coaxial speakers up front and 2 3.5" ks350 speakers in the back (Run me $70)

or do i add 2 4" CDT Audio classic 2 way component speakers (run me $100)

or do i instead go with 2 4" Diamond Audio CM3 Components (run me $130)

and what amp should i use to power them, should I use a 2 channel or a 4 channel? keep in mind I already have the monoblock 400 watt amp (also what wires will i need to wire up a second amp)

for the ks350 and ks400 speakers im looking at the kicker kx200.2 amp, would that be able to power all four speakers? some people have told me I should go without the 3.5" in the back alltogether but all my interior speakers are busted and i can replace them all for $70, or should I spend $100 on components and leave the rears as they are?

in any case if the kx200.2 amp isn't the best option, what can u guys recommend under $70 with shipping that could power either the 4 kicker coaxials or 2 CDT/Diamond components?

here are the stats on the speakers i am considering getting
