Kids and highs? Or subwoofers? Subwoofers in my opinion are JL Audio and RE Audio. I have always had JLs and they are my opinion one of the best. Mods and highs... I like focal, Mb quart, and JL. I have pioneers in my truck they work real good and there the low grade series. Rockford fosgate is good from the one I've heard. Ken wood is always pretty good. You got 3 brand that are pretty close together. Look up focal. JBL isn't to bad they got good deals on those around the Internet. Try sonicelectronix.com they got everything. And there fast on delivery...... Good luck
And mid speaker with separate tweeter are always better, with cross overs and amps. And you'll be good.

So I think I'm going to go with JL AUDIO C2-570X for the front speakers and the JL AUDIO TR600-CXi for the rear seat side panels. I also already have a double din pioneer head unit installed. Besides wiring equipment do I need to purchase anything else such as tweeters, amps, ect? Very new at this. I do not want a subwoofer just planning on replacing speakers for now

Well if you want those JLs to perform at THIER highest performance an amp is good. JL amp to be compatible, 400watt/4 channel. And tweeters is up to you. You can get the mids with the highs in the middle their still great. And it's easier to install.
That pioneer double din is probably bad *** I love pioneer or alpine deck. Their the top dog I think. Make sure your power wire to your amp is good size to carry the power.

This would be the amp. If you can try and get speaker with all the same wattage and ohm put out for continuos power.

These speakers same size you chose, all the same watts and ohms though.

I understand about the amp, I have heard from someone that works with speakers says that the amp is usually strong enough in the radio to hold the power. It's a gift so I'm trying to not over due the price LOL. If I hold out on the amp now. Both the front and rear speakers will be good though? I don't listen to music to blow my ear drums out just loud enough that it bumps lol. Stock setup is horrible nd blown lol

Yes you'll be fine. I love my music so a jam it out! Lol but your good. Either way you'll be good. It just works your deck more. But if you don't blare your music you'll be just fine.

Ooh wow it's like a concert in your car prob even better. I decided to get an external AMP as well. Do you think I should take out the MACH tweeters or leave them in bc I don't nescarilly need them and I think they are making a small crackling noise

When I hooked my subs up I unplugged my stock subs in the doors. If I put in JLs.... Their crisp and I don't think you'll need any more high frequency. But try it first and see if you like the higher frequency some do. I like the bass more with equal highs not to much though. But you could leave them. More speakers more noise as my grandma says it....

No problem. Tell the guys who install it. To see how it sounds with the 2 extra tweeter in still hooked up. If its to much for you. Tell them to leave them in and just unplug them. That way theirs no empty holes in your trim. I think the tweeter will be good still hooked up though. Good luck. Enjoy that system! It's bad ***!

And you could always put in a nice JL W0 10", sense you don't like to much head bangin loudness. It would really even everything out. Subs $110, a box for $50-75, and you can get a MTX amp for about $175 their real solid amps.
I got an MTX to my 2 W0 10"... It's nice. Good luck again
