    Components and rear fill look good. AMP THEM.

    Oh and Alpine head unit.

    Ditch the frear fill and get better fronts. They will have different sound characteristics and pull your ears to the back of the car not the front where you want it. Even if they are the same speaker this can happen. Amp them for sure but not that crunch. As for the HU, you need to listen to them yourself, every brand has its own sound, the Alpine is much better but you may not like it.
