    I'd toss my idea. Morel Maximo 69C coaxial speakers. Morel Maximo have reputation for good sq, specially if you can run them active, and for good sensitivity. I think they will sound ok of head unit power, just don't crank the volume too high.

    Well they are both made by Harmon and yes the tweets like my Perfects absolutely have to be attenuated. I have 2 pair of some 7 year old JBL 6x8's P6852(?) from the power series with that same cone material. One went bad so I dissected it. No attenuator on the tweet, cleaner but didn't do lows as good as my Pioneer TS-D6802'S

    The TS-Ds are just a great set for the money across the board. the 6.5" comps come alive once you remove the passive crossovers and run them active.

    Polk db691 are $85 on ebay and 93db sensitivity which is great for what you need.

    OP, if you MUST upgrade the rear stage first and you have $100....

    1)Get a cheap pair of planet audio, rockford, cadence, etc, etc, whatever, 6x9's for <$40(you can get some audiopipe ones for like $25). And do a good job installing.

    2)Then get a cheap 2 channel amp with high level inputs (or a cheap loc, too) for <$50(these are on CL, ebay, and here for that, everyday)

    3)Get some cheap power wire and terminals with what's left. Should be enough there.

    Just to add my 0.02... if i were to upgrade anything first, it would be the head unit. And then, the front speakers. Get that x396 in the classifieds(its $100), or another decent hu. Thats the best way to start, not with the rears. In fact, I uninstalled mine.
