I have almost no experience with car audio, so please don't talk technical, help me out by explaining and using links.
I ordered some PYLE PLG64 6.5 in 300W Mid-Bass woofers - I know they're cheap, but because I know little I figure they are a good start. They'll be mounted in the rear mounts (over the trunk). Here are the specs:

Yellow CD P.P. Cone - Magnet Weight: 30 Oz
Specially Treated Rubber - Impedance: 4 OHM
Edge Suspension - Rubber Magnet Boot Cover
1.0'' High Temperature - 300 Watts Peak Power
Aluminum Voice Coil - Mounting Depth: 2.84"

I'm using a Pioneer AVH5700DVD deck with these specs:

Power Per Channel 50 Watts x 4 Channels
Pre-Amp Outputs 3 Channels
Input Connectors RGB x 1, AV x 1, AV-Bus x 1, Camera x 1
Output Connectors AV x 1

What do I need to get the low frequencies out of these speakers? Do I need an Amp? If so, what should I look for?

You will only be getting around 17-20 watts tops out of that deck... I'm sure that for the sound you will be wanting you will need to run a decent 4 channel on the midbasses

I would start at around 75rms at the most from a decent amp...

you realize they are midbass speakers not midrange right?
