That's an open ended question.

Your budget and how your going to setup your system what your going to put it in will also help get you some answers

I think you have a great start. Those are really good sounding speakers, although a little inefficient 89.5 dB. But you have an amp that will push them well.

With the different power ratings your 450/4 amp puts out (channels 1-2 vs channels 3-4) tuning and equalization is going to be very critical.

IMO...if your headunit does not have a good equalizer, it might be worth your investment to add one.

I would also invest in a professional installation and "Tuning"

There are a lot of really good installers, really good tuners are hard to find. There are people that really have the ear for it, I'm not one of them, so I get help on critical tunes

I am in Texas.

I prefer the 2-way, I can get everything I want out of quality 2-way components.

IMO...Less coin, less work on the install, less to tune and setup. Powered correctly they will blast you out of the car or off the bike

But. I have a couple of pure audiophile buddies that are the 3-way or no way. Their setup's are SIC, They both run Digital Sound Processor's and are so deep into this stuff it just blows me away. Total redneck nerds. One is an ex Navy Seal, so I only call him a nerd on the cell phone...LOL

Buddy, you gotta do whatever it is that is going to make you smile, that's why we are all into this stuff...to crank it up and make us smile

it depends on how deep your pockets are.....

the JBL 660gti components ( re released as the 670gti ) are a 2 way
component set that will eat and crap out almost any 3 way component set
at 3x the price

I really like the Focal #7 component set but they come with a massive price tag
and they will not handle anywhere near the power of the 670gti's
