so for my front speakers i cant decide im really split

Pioneer - 5-1/4" 2-Way Car Speakers with Polypropylene Cones (Pair) - TS-G1344R
got them for 32$

or

Polk Audio - 4" x 6" Plate-Mounted Speakers with Poly-Mica Composite Cones (Pair) - DXi460p

I got those exact Polk speakers to replace my front speakers and although they sound lots better than the stock speakers, they aren't near as loud as the mid- price range pioneer speakers I put in the back. So I would vote for the 5 1/4 Pioneer speakers.

Every ear is different - I use those Polks in my front dash and love them for the clarity and separation. Kickers in the sound bar and stock sub in the console. I won't win any sound competitions, but I'm not trying to.

I have the setup that you describe above but with a 400 watt amp driving 1 10 along with those pioneers in the front and I hate to say it but unless I lean forward the sound from above and behind overpowers them. It does "fill in" the front though...
