Options in my mind as suggested:

Front Components:
  1. Morel Maximo 6 6-1/2 240W 2-Way Maximo - ₹9,400
  2. Polk db6502 Series Component System 6.5" - ₹12,900

Rear Co-Axials:
  1. Focal-R-165C two way co-axial - ₹3,800
  2. Morel Maximo 6C 6.5" - ₹6,025
  3. Polk Audio DB651s Slim-Mount 6.5" - ₹8,750
  4. Rockford Fosgate R165X3 Prime 6.5" Full-Range 3-Way Coaxial - ₹6,905
PS: All prices are as seen on Amazon.in.

Amp is in second stage of upgrade. I am a TOTAL noob when it comes to audio.

Budget is Maximum ₹20,000
Unless you have a great priority for the rear seats, your priority should be the front components. Also, please do not skip the amplifier.

Keep it simple with the amplifier if budget is a concern. A good reputed 4 channel amplifier for the budget, which can take high level inputs will do the job just fine.

IMO - Give maximum budget possible to front component speakers instead. Next priority to the amplifier and last priority to the rear coaxials.

Also, as I had sent you in whatsapp, there are many fakes available online and the Morel listing you were looking at is a known fake seller reported in other ICE forums.

Would recommend that you go to a reputed shop and get the prices. They would not only have a wider variety on offer, buy you may get to audition the sound signatures of these speakers as well.

Get a descent set of front components as suggested above and also go for a good 4 channel amplifier, this way you are happy for few years even if you upgrade the speakers later.

When you get bored of this setup, add a sub-woofer to the scheme of things rather than adding rear speakers.

Have you auditioned any one of the listed speakers you have suggested in earlier thread ? if not do so and think what you desire from them i.e. clarity/details or only bass.

Also do keep in mind you will need to invest in good quality wiring & fuse to make this setup run properly and safely, so keep some budget for it too if not already.
