Want new mid and highs in my truck. Need two pair 6.5 and two pair of tweet. Going full active, using my amps to crossover, Jl 450/4 and Jl300/4. Will have 4x150 for mid and 2x75 for tweet. Is that enough for my highs? I live in an area with zero sound stores so listening is not an option. Budget is about 700. I listen to ALL types of music. This is going in ext cab truck. I was planning on ruining my rear off HU with bass blockers. I have some cheap 4x6 there now. Any help and guidance is much appreciated! Thanks guys.

What truck ? And that's a bit much for tweets unless you get bullet tweets

Full size Chevy. 150 watts for four tweets too much?

75W RMS is fine for tweeters by the time you level match to the mids and EQ the peaks down, assuming you want your system to reproduce music like it should sound. There isn't a whole lot of energy above the usual 2.5k-3.5K range where tweeters get crossed over, which further reduces the actual power the tweeters will see.

Do you mean you want 4 mids and 4 tweeters in the front of your truck?

Yes sir, that is my plan, unless it is foolish of course.

And my 4x6 in rear run off HU.

With that many speakers in the front all powered by an amplifier those 4x6s aren't going to be contributing much at all. I personally would disconnect them. It's one less thing to worry about.
