If you're willing to spend $300 per set, you're going to have some nice options.

it all depends on your crossover.
if your speakers are crossed over at 60hz then its gonna be touch to keep up with subs
if your speakers are crossed over at like 150 then its easier for them to keep up
id say boston acoustics would keep up with them
or maybe a 3 way setup
im not a big fan of JBL its like sony

i personally like the sound of focals,polks,infinity,and pioneers.

what amp or amps are you going to use to run the 3 sets of components ? but if i were you i would take and buy one nice set... like some Focal 165 KRX2... or Hertz 165 MLK or some Boston spz60 , either of them with a decent amp to match should get plenty loud enough to keep up and sound good doing it..

I personally did not like the Boiston Pro 60's. The tweeter is too bright and is almost painful at high volume. I bet the GTI's would sound the same. Metal dome tweeters just **** IMO.

The ID ctx sets get loud and have a **** good tweeter for less than $200. Maybe buy the cx series if you want to spend a little more, but frankly if you are going to run 3 sets there is no good reason as you are not looking for SQ so really no need to spend more, IMO.

Additionally, it's very hard to read your post. Use a period, capitalize a letter every now and then, use the space bar and you would get more replies to your posts. Not throwing a rock at you, just some advice.
