Help choosing amps and speakers

Looking for some opinions on a great SQ set up for a 2006 Hyundai Tucson.

So far I have a Pioneer DEH-80PRS HU and a single JL Audio 12w6v2 in a ported enclosure. My dilemma is trying to choose a great pair of front component speakers and a front stage 4 channel amp and a mono sub amp for the JL. I am probably going to do without rear fill altogether. I would likely try to buy the speaks new and look for amps used. Budget is $1500-2000

Here are my choices:

Speakers (6.5 components)

I'm pretty set on Focal 165 krx2's; however would also consider
Audison Voce K6's (about $300 cheaper than krx2's)
Focal 165KR (also about $300 cheaper than krx2's)

Front stage amp

Audison LRx 6.9 (2-300 used)
Audison VRx 4.300
Arc Audio SE 4200 (probably about $200 more than the VRx)

Mono sub amp

JL audio HD 1200/1
JL audio 500/1 v1
Alpine MRX-M110
Alpine PDX 1.1000

I listen to mainly rock, electronic and hip hop but also have a fair bit of hi-rez audio (jazz, vocal, pop, rock). I listen to pretty much everything so want a set up that is versatile. I would like something as neutral as possible but I tend towards the warmer side of neutral vs. bright and analytical.

So, again keeping SQ in mind and getting best bang for buck, what would you choose and why?
