Default ICE for my VW POLO

I got my Polo 1.2 comfortline last week, since then researching for a good ICE.After 7 days of tbhp readin...am thinkin of the following setup.

HU-Pioneer fh8000bt 2-din-with bluetooth n ipod connectivity.
Front comps- HERTZ DSK 165
Rear comps- HERTZ DSK 165
amp-JBL 75.4 (for front comps n sub)
SUB-JBL 12" with enclosure
amp n sub frm my old innova

pls suggest if this s ok n have som doubts,
1)the speaker slot looks small -does 6.5"comps fit on polo?
2)does the combination of pio n hertz be too bright, i dont like highs too much, prefer better midrange/vocals and tight bass.i listen to all kinds of music-(heavy metal to bollywood to classical)
3)and pls suggest other/better comps for a budget of around 6k/pair.
4)and shud i damp my boot, i dont want echo of the boom frm the sub (sorry i dont kno how else to put it), which pains the rear passengers of my innova.

I doubt if JBL 75.4 is still available? IIRC, it was phased out around 1.5 yrs back.

Hertz generally provides a good laid back sound so you have made a good choice here. But why components even in the rear? If you are going to be driving then front components are enough. Ask the dealer for the exact size of the speaker housings or else if you are OK to cut your doors then no need to worry. Damping will definitely help. Damp the doors too but I think the Polo is a pretty well built car so maybe you could avoid a lot of damping.

The polo does support 6.5 inches if i remember correctly. or use a spacer and add the hertz grill.
