    For 120x4 amps, either a SoundQubed Q4-120 or a Crescendo C1100.4.

    Why not a couple of 3.5" full range drivers up front. That's what I would think about doing if I had 8's in the doors. You could probably put a couple in the back but unless you attenuate them out of your front stage you'll get some interference.
    If my thinking is off someone just chime in.

    Whatever comes off that windshield is gonna be loud anyway. Reason I say 3.5" full range drivers is because they can cover a wider frequency range than tweeters can, and considering your using 8s in the doors you may need something that can pick up where the 8s leave off.

    What is in the cruiser currently?

    first off imo I wouldn't get a two way driver, just get the woofer. And the diagram is showing your stock speaker ohm specs. You need to decide what speakers you want to replace your stock with and find an amp that satisfies your new speakers requirements. I can't make any suggestions maybe someone else can.
    @neo_styles ; wanna chime in on what's been said so far

    Sorry, Caleb, never trained myself up on Pro Audio as it's never been something I'd considered for myself. Have to pass this on to someone else.

    OP, you'll probably get a better answer from SMD than here for what you're looking for.
