I have narrowed it down to 3 component sets given my friend's budget:
RF FNP2614 - $70 including shipping
Kicker K6.2 - $100 including shipping
Infinity Reference 6000CS - $100 including shippin
Please do take in consideration that RF's are $30 less, so if the difference is negligible he'll take the 30bucks. Thanks all.

Hey Oleg, here's my list in order of preference. RF ($60) is your first choice cause of price and performance. It has SN of 89.1db, with 40Hz - 22Khz. The only down side is the power, it's only 50W rms.
2nd choice is Infinity 6000cs. It has the best SN 92db, highest power 90W rms.
Kicker is last for having SN 88db, 75W rms and high price.
If your friend needs more power, then Infinity is your first choice.
Hope that helps.

Hey JW, that's not a bad system. However, Oleg says that he can get Infinity 6000cs for $100 including shipping. That is a much better bargin.
The only thing I didn't like about Crystal is their frequency response. It's 80hz - 21Khz. You're losing out on low mid bass. Most are around 40hz - 50hz.

Isaac, are you sure that below 80Hz is necessary for mids? You'd probably want to set the HPF even higher than that, no? I tried to get my minds to play those frequencies and all that did was produce some weak bass that duplicated the subs...didn't sound too good.

Hey Oleg, you don't need bass below 80Hz for the front, but I was just stating the spec of the speakers, that's all.
The Crystals are not that much cheaper compared to Infinity 6000cs, so since I have Infinity and they sound great, I'd go with Infinity.
I think I have my fronts set around 100Hz.

I've listened and tried Pioneer/Sony/Kenwood and few others. So far Infinity beats hands down. The music is so clear in my car, it feels like home stereo. I have Infinity all around, front and rear.

If I buy a 4 channel amp and hookup the 2 tweeters and 4 door speakers... can the amp that came with jeep grand cherokee be used to power an external sub? Can it be crossed over?

That'll depend on the amp. If it's powerful enough to power a sub, then sure. If not, you might as well get a 5 channel amp instead.
