Default MegaCab Audio Question

I am thinking about running this setup in my 06 megacab. Tell me if this would work well or not. I am going to put a JVC head unit in, polk 6x9 in the front, and then here is the questionable part. I was wanting to put polk 6.5 components in the rear doors with the woofers in the rear doors and the tweeters in the dash. Trying to pull the sound stage forward some. I was wanting to know if anyone has tried something like this, and what opinions of this setup would be.

You should keep the woofer and tweeter of a passive component set within 12" of each other. If you are wanting rear fill, get some coaxials. If you are wanting to keep the stage toward the front, don't use any rear fill.

Now, if you are wanting to run an active setup, there are options...

I will be a passive setup, and the distance was my biggest concern. I may try and find some 6x9 components for the front instead. I just want good sound, I'm not concerned about rear fill. I just want good staging towards the front and a nice upgrade from factory.

Gotcha, if funds are limited, focus on the front stage, forget the rear for now. Try to source a small 2ch amp for the comps, that is a better option.
