    Sounds to me like theyre not gonna last long.... no "personal" experience w/ 3.5"s but you may want to dial the bass down on the headunit and cut off any bass boost/etc... also i would cut on the high pass filter if the unit is capable

    theyres no grinding noise or anything, it just pops every few bass hits.. happens if i have the car off with just music playing or if im driving.. theyres no pop when i first turn the headunit on or off its just while the music is playing... sounds almost like a rock hitting my windshield or something but i dont blast the volume because i figure its going to keep popping and i didnt want to blow the speaker yet.. lol..

    yep, you need a high pass crossover on them. commonly called "bassblockers" they are simply a non-polarized capacitor wired in series. the value of the cap depends on the nominal impedance of the speaker. google "bassblockers" and buy some rated for 160Hz.

    they are only a couple of bucks and they will protect your speakers. you'll loose midbass but what do you expect from 3.5" speakers?
