I like Infinity personally. The Alpine's are good too and would compliment your Alpine Receiver. I own Infinity Reference coaxials and from my experience and others they offer alright bass for aftermarket coaxials. I would run the coaxials off your HU and only get an amp for the comps.

I would get comps in the front and coaxs in the rear. Run the rear speakers off your HU and use the 2 ch amp to power the comps.

DO NOT get the Chaos amp, they are horrible. I would not even get the power acoustik amp. I would check out soundstream or MA Audio for amps if your on a budget. Etronics.com is a good place to search for one.

yea but if get the components, installation will be harder\expensive, and i cant afford components and rear speakers. either four coaxials, or two components, those are my options. i actaully did find a cheap soundstream amp alternative that i am using.
