. Please repost your question so we can understand what you are asking. Looks like autocorrect attacked your post.

You must know the RMS power of your amp before choosing the proper speakers.
Just saying Rockford Fosgate means nada, since they make so many different amps.

Also, you don't want to use max power when talking about the handling wattage. The RMS power of that Pioneer is 200watts. It's not really made for amplified speakers. It seems designed for just an aftermarket HU.
I would use 40-50watt RMS speakers with it, without extra speaker amps, and not high powered speakers. For high powered speakers you'll want a 400-500 RMS subwoofer, or basically, twice the power of that Pioneer Enclosure.

Basically, just throw some Polks on your aftermarket HU, leave out Rockford Fosgate, and you should have sufficient subwoofer power from your Pioneer.

Think of this as a formula. Five times the speaker power for the proper subwoofer power.
200watt Sub=40watt speakers
500wattsub=100watt speakers

You'll see that most five channel amps are designed this way.

If you want some powerful speakers for mid and tweeters, I would try the CDT's.

You need to decide whether you want components or coaxial speakers too. The CDT's actually come in convertible speakers, so you can use them as Coaxial or component.

The CDT's come in the RMS range of 90-160 watts.

You also need to know what size speakers you are looking for.

Coaxial CDT's - 5.25 or 6.5
CL-5EX - 5.25 - spec is 90wattsRMS, $89,CL 5EX
CL-6EX - 6.5 - spec is 110wattsRMS, $99, CL 6EX

Convertible CDT-5.25 or 6.5
CL-5CV - 5.25 - spec is 150wattsRMS, $149,CL 51 CV
CL-6CV - 6.5 - spec is 160wattsRMS, $159,CL 61 CV

For price, power and quality, CDT's are the best. IMHO.

I assume you are talking subwoofer, not woofer. It really depends on the power of your subwoofer amp, or whether you have a subwoofer amp.

If you are going with powerful speakers, then you need a powerful subwoofer.
You'll want your subwoofer amp to be at least 400-500watts RMS. 2-10" subwoofers will best fit that requirement. For the best subwoofer sound, most people will recommend 2-10" subwoofers.

I tend to think of it like this. four speakers @ 100watts per speaker, then you'll want a subwoofer of the same power as those speakers or 4x100=400 watts for the sub.

The Pioneer TS-SWX251 is only 200watts RMS, and really not enough power to compliment 4 powerful speakers.

It also depends on the vehicle in which you are putting the subwoofer.

If it is a JK, the best option that I have seen is the loaded low profile 2-10" subwoofer box. According to the seller, it can be custom fabricated to fit a TJ in the trunk. For space considerations, being that it is low profile, I think this is the best. Also, it is downfiring, which is great for retaining the sound, with the top off. There is also the Thunderform MTX 2-10" subwoofer box for a TJ. It is also downfiring. You may get a little better sound from this one because it has a larger resonance chamber. The sacrifice is your entire trunk. There maybe other subwoofer boxes as well, but these are the main ones that I am familiar with. I have the Thunderform in my TJ, and it sounds great. I paid $350 for mine, loaded without the amp. "Loaded" means that it comes with the subwoofers.

What are the model numbers of the amps and the manufacturer? I believe you said they were Rockford Fosgates, right? But, what model numbers?

Those Polks are not really amplifier capable speakers. They are only 50watts RMS. But, if you plan to use them with a 50watt amp, it might be okay. Plus, they are 4x6 speakers, so I assume you plan to use them in the front. It is better to use 5.25 speakers in the front with the Nalin adapter. You'll get much better sound from the 5.25 speakers, instead of 4" mid-range speakers. The 4x6 speakers use a 4" mid range speaker. According to Crutchfield, that speaker is discontinued.

Also, using different amps, front and rear, will ruin your sound stage. It is hard enough, trying to get a good sound stage in a Jeep, without complicating it, with different power amps. A 50watt amp in front and a 100watt amp in the rear, is going to make the front speakers nearly impossible to hear.

You really need to match your components properly(amps & speakers), instead of just wasting money. Believe me, I've done it, after not having installed an audio system for years since I brought my Wrangler. I installed 4x6 front speakers and I blew them out with my amp. Then, I matched my amps with the proper speakers and went with a better speaker in the front, a 5.25, as recommended on this site. The audio store where I brought them, didn't even tell me that the speakers were not compatible with my amp.
After realizing my error myself, and wasting money, I got the proper speakers for my amp(s).

I also don't know what year Wrangler you have, or where you plan to install the 6x9 speakers. I've never heard of anyone installing 6x9 speakers in the sound bar. Normally, they use 5.25 or 6.5 speakers. Some aftermarket sound bars use component speakers, but I've never heard of component speakers being used in the sound bar with factory sound bars. It can be done, but why 6x9's?

You really need to do the research, and determine exactly what you are working with, instead of just casually throwing away money.

For Example, Rockford Fosgate 150, and Rockford Fosgate 200, and a 750 with no model number or manufacturer means nothing.

A Rockford Fosgate 150 could be this: Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2
Rockford Fosgate Punch PBR300X2 Compact 2-channel car amplifier — 100 watts RMS x 2 at Crutchfield.com

A Rockford Fosgate 200 could be this: Rockford Fosgate Punch P200-2
Rockford Fosgate Punch P200-2 2-channel car amplifier 50 watts RMS x 2 at Crutchfield.com

A "750" could be anything. Without any manufacturer, the "750" number means nothing. It could be a single channel, 2 channel, 4 channel or even a 5 channel amp. When a Manufacturer lists "750" they normally use a max number, which means nothing when matching the amp to the speakers. This is why you need the model number to determine the RMS power of the amp. My Power Acoustik Gothic 5-Channel Amp was a "2500", but that number meant nothing. But, knowing the model number and manufacturer, I was able to determine that it was a 100wattsx4 RMS, and 500watts RMS sub amp. Therefore, I was able to determine the proper speakers for it.

A "750" sounds like it is a mono channel sub amp. But, without knowing the manufacturer, you can't determine this for sure, nor can you tell what the RMS number is for that amp.

If you go about it so casually, I think you are just throwing away money. Maybe, you should wait until the summer time, when you have time to spend, when you aren't studying for classes, instead of just throwing away money.

If you have a 97 you have stock 4x6 up front and 5.25 in the sound bar.

Get you some nalin mfg brackets and put some Polk components in the front. For the soudbar get the matching coax Polks in a 5.25. If the bar is removed and you have 6x9 boxes get some coax kickers.

Look at the amps and get us some model numbers. Chances are we can make them work. If they are higher RMS set them with a dmm if they are lower set the gain a 3/4.

The question is, do you have the factory sound bar in your 98 Wrangler? If so, you want 5.25 speakers, not 6x9. And, yes, definitely get the Nalin adapters to put in the front 5.25 speakers, and match the 5.25 speakers, front and rear. If you are getting the MTX subwoofer box, then you DON'T want Polks. The MTX subwoofer box is 400watts RMS, and you'll want speakers that will compliment that much power. Polks at 50watts RMS will not suffice.

In Post #11, we talked about speakers.
In Post #15, we discussed subwoofers.

Chas have you ever used amped Polks? They get very loud and still sound good. They overpowered 2 8's on 800rms ported on an install I did until I turned them down.

2-10" Kicker CVX
MTX box built to fit behind rear seat
Rockford fosgate 1000x2 punch series
4-Cheap pioneer 5&1/4 components ($100 for all from Walmart)
MTX forward firing brackets in the dash

It's so crisp and clean. Beats 90% of headphone out on the market. Even the Walmart speakers, they just have no lows so you have to have subs. Bout to get some jk pods for tweeters on the dash and retrofit them on mine. Then I'll be done.

. This is wrong. The polks will get plenty loud with 50wpc and a 400w sub.

How do you know? Do you have a system with 50watt speakers and a 400watt subwoofer?

Even though you don't, show me a 5-channel amp with 50wattx4 and a 400watt sub channel.

5-Channel amps are built with the power supply that best compliments the speakers. 75watt=300watt sub, 50=200watt sub.

If Rockford Fosgate designed the 5-channel amp with 50watt and 200watts, clearly there is a reason for it. It is because 200watts is enough subwoofer power for 50watt speakers, and 400watts is way too much.
You'll get horribly balanced sound with 400watt sub and only 50watt speakers. You'll have all this extra subwoofer power that you can never use.

More information here:
Matching Car Speakers & Subwoofers Together Correctly - CarsDirect

Sound Compatibility

A third important issue that comes up often when attempting to match the speakers and subwoofers of a car stereo system is the sound capabilities of both. This is more an issue of personal preference, but is one that you should consider nonetheless. Do not plan to buy a super powerful subwoofer if the other speakers in your car audio system are of low wattage and cannot provide that much sound. The sound will be distorted and uneven. It's a good idea to buy components that are generally equivalent; purchasing a less expensive subwoofer to go along with less expensive speakers can be better than purchasing an expensive one.

I'm lovin' that MTX sub box.(hehe, I have one in my TJ) But, are you sure its front firing? If you look at the raised ridges, and, what looks like a small screw hole, that I seem to see on the bottom right(I could be wrong), it looks like its downfiring. Maybe you mounted it front firing to save space.

It also looks like you have Kicker 10" instead of the MTX 10". How do you like them? If I ever blow out my MTX subwoofers, I have always considered Kickers, so I'm curious.

A Majestic 700 crossover is a crossover, and not an amp.

If you will post the pictures, of your components, and then zoom in on the bottom with any written information, we can help you figure it out.

Then, post pictures, of your speaker locations, and we will know more about the speakers you need, for the best upgrade.

Let's do it right, so you will be happy, and satisfied with your audio upgrade.

Just trying to help you, my friend.

It's so crisp and clean. Beats 90% of headphone out on the market. Even the Walmart speakers, they just have no lows so you have to have subs. Bout to get some jk pods for tweeters on the dash and retrofit them on mine. Then I'll be done.
I wouldn't worry about the bass. Your 2-10" subwoofers, will handle the bass.
The problem is the Pioneers. They just don't crank out enough power, to compliment your powerful subs.

Tweeters, won't help. You need better speakers, and an amp for those speakers.

I'm sure you noticed that you are lacking highs, and mid range as well. But, that is because of the power, not the speakers.

I would ditch, the Rockford, and get an alpine(PDX-V9), to handle the sub, and the speakers. This way, you are only using one amp, for space considerations, and power draw.

Then get better speakers for your highs and mid-range, to compliment the powerful subs, that you are using.
