JK speakers component or 2+ way (wiring)

I am pulling the trigger on upgrading my sound system and was hoping yall could help me out with a question.

I am getting this head unit
JVC KW-XR810 (how come I cant post a link)
Now,
The stock system has 2 in the lower dash 2 in the bar and 2 tweeters. To my understanding the tweeters and the lower dash speakers connect to the crossovers which sends the highs to the tweets and the lows to the woofers?

So how should I configure my new speakers. 2-ways in the bar and just plain old component woofers in the lower dash and new tweeters? Or can I go with 4x2-ways and still be able to get the tweeters?

to run a nice set of speakers 20 watt rms isn't too much for a headunit that size.

to replace the sound bar speakers and tweeters you should look into a set of component speakers, they have a crossover to send a signal to the speaker and the tweeter so that they only put out the frequency they can handle.

you can get a set of infinity kappa components off ebay for a great price, as for the fronts just get a set of two way speakers.

and you don't have to get a factory size head unit, you can get a smaller unit and get a dash kit to make it fit($20-$30)

Thanks for the input. I am waiting a bit on the amp to see what it will sound like without. I want to avoid rewiring for power and what not if I can.
