Choosing Speakers??

Hello, I just signed up for this site and i'm not sure if i'm post this in the right spot or not. But yeah.

So, i'm looking at getting a sound system for my 06 Dodge Dakota. Had it for 2 years now and I think it's time for a upgrade.

I'm having trouble choosing on what speakers on want. I can't see if I like the sound of them or not, due to the fact i'm ordering them online and live in a small town that sells pretty much nothing.

The speakers i'm looking are:
Alpine SPR-17S
Diamond Audio D661s
Polk Audio MMC6500

They will be powered by a Kicker ZX350.2.

The rest of my system consists of:
Eclipse CD3200
2 Kicker 12" L7 D2
Kicker ZX1500.1
Box: 5.6 cu ft" @ 34Hz
Kinetik HC2000
Mean Green 200 HO amp *contacted them about 3 or 4 months about one and they made one for my truck*

I haven't ordered any of the stuff yet. Just picking it out right now.

That is all. If you guys suggest something different, then what I already picked out, don't be shy to tell me.

the problem with this is its so much personal preference. thats why no one has answered. Front stage is dangerous when suggesting to someone, its just hard to do. We all have different taste right and non of us want to tell you what to get and then you dont like it. for example many people use Alpine in the front and love it, i personally cant stand them up front because they are to harsh for my ears and musical taste (metal) but i use them in the back of my car. mid and high range are all about personal preference, it would be very much worth your time to take a trip to a bigger place and spend a day listening to speakers, you could go to visions alone and hear both the alpine and the polk then decide which you like better then go home and order them

The rest of your line up is great gear it will be great in your truck or anything else for that matter.

Yeah and 50 noobs a week on here ask "what stuff should I buy" or " is this stuff good" so chill out. You waited a whopping 9 hours, half during business hours, on a Friday, before your snot comment. Feel free to go elsewhere if that's your attitude.

Oh yeah, buying audio gear that you have never heard, online, is dumb.

I would have a serious look at these since not much information was given saying what you were looking for or price range.
