|Me... I understand fully, too many projects, it is that easy !
I was going to say, since you don't have or want an amp, which would clean things up some, just a small one, but the speakers, my plan is as follows and is based on the fact of two things, 1) the Cab size, mine is a std-2 dr Cab, and 2) my age, I just want nice clean music.
The first things is as I state an amp, get a small unit, but a good one, the music will sound better, cleaner.
Next the Speakers, you need decent speakers, 6 x 9 Coaxial for the rear, they will keep the music in the rear coming in a little lower in tone, and the front... two speakers, one is a Coaxial Mid-Range Round Speaker, the largest you can fit in the Doors with sound boxes, sound boxes not only keep the speaker drier they help the speakers create better sound but the Kicker in this case is... get a set of Tweeters and mount them in the corners of the Dash or high on the door pillars but point them at you.
The front should be the best speakers you can afford, these will be the loudest speakers and should be able to reproduce the sound to the highest level, the rear speakers as good as you can, but the rears will be filler speakers and you can set them through an amp to be a little more bas-sie , and they can be a little lower in price !
Always spend your money on your speakers and amp, then buy the best Stereo you can afford, with speakers setup for quality in the front with tweeters, and decent speakers in the rear for filling out the music, you should be very happy with the Music.
I was never so surprised to hear tweeters sound off when I installed the Pioneer/Explorer Speakers in my '95 and used an iPod as a delivery system, once the new system is installed (parts are in house), I am hoping to hear more quality music than I have ever had !
Pioneer has a Matrix System on their Site and it allows you to pick and choose speakers and an Amp that will work together, and it is better if you have a Pioneer Head Unit but you can always pick one that has the same specs as your and go from there.
I used it to pick my system, head Unit, Amp Speakers, Bass, just need some time.
I for one need to select a sound system based on my hearing not what others thing is right, I have used Pioneer for years and have not been disappointed, although some of the reviews I am reading on the Web don't sound very good.
Good Luck, keep it simple, but good speakers and go from there, if later you think you need an amp make sure to buy speakers that will work with a small amp.
