Not an Expert opinion, but my take,

Pioneer 3190 - Must be around 6.5K
JBL GT5-S265 - 2.6K
JBL 947 - 4.4K
Mdf - 0.5K

Total - 14K

My recommended config is as follows:
  1. Pio3190 or Kenwood equivalent
  2. 6"/6.5" components for front(get the best you can afford)
  3. 6.5" coaxes for rear
Nothing else will do,my friend.

I am not sure if 6.5 coax will give you the same amount of bass as a good 6X9. Gurus any inputs on this?

True, Cone Area is less in 6.5". Also the size of enclosure (which is basically the door) makes 6.5" less 'bassy' if you call it that way.

On the other had, most 6x9 are placed on MDF, adding to the fact that in a hatch, the whole boot will 'act' as an enclosure (not in literal sense) and hence better bass than 6.5"

When you dont plan a sub, better go for 6x9 - Its worth the 'Bass'

Certainly get JBL 6x9 for the rear than 6.5s.
This is the stuff you should get-
HU-Kenny 5039
Frnt-JBL 608c
Rear-JBL 947/948

You can easily get the above stuff in 12-15k at the max.

Thanks guys!

3 years of continuous driving in USA made him unfit for driving in Indian condition. ICE is on hold till this month end as he is getting adjusted to "INDIAN" driving style.
