Default Unhappy with my new ICE (Accent Viva)

Hi Audio Gurus,

Last week i upgraded Accent Viva's ICE (Budget).

HU : JVC KD 426 : Spec as below

MOS-FET 50W x 4
24-bit DAC
3-Band Parametric iEQ
Ready for Bluetooth® Wireless Technology*
Front USB Port (MP3/WMA)
MP3/WMA Compatible with ID3/WMA Tag (CD/USB)
HS-IVi Tuner
Loudness Control
2.5V Line and Subwoofer Pre-Out Level
RCA Pre-Out Terminal (Rear/Subwoofer Switchable)
Subwoofer Control
High-Pass Filter
Dual AUX-IN (Front/Rear)

I have put JBL comp GTO 6080c at front. and at rear i have pioneer 3 way co-axical 400 Watt speaker on wooden plank.

I am not at all satisfied with this setup. I get very bright sound from rear and i am not able to get that "warmth". I changed so many settings of HU bass...treble..mid levels but for some songs it works good for some songs it's too bright.

History :
I changed from polk DB691 to pioneer 400w co-ax. as polk was very bright. Then i changed Sony HU to JVC. But still same irritating sound when at back seat.

Can you please suggest where am i going wrong ?
OR shall i put same front JBL comp to rear as well instead of pioneer 400W co-ax and put small sub connected from HU. Please help me .

What sound i like : I dont like Bright and too forward sounding as well as too laid back sound signature. It should have decent sound stage, musical seperation and airy feel. The high should go real high but not sparkle. I like dome tweeters rather than piezo tweeter setup. Also I dont need more bass at the same time it should not be bass shy. It just need little more bass and little high. The vocals are too good for the price and midrange is excellent with reasonably better cound stage.

The entire list of equipment you have been shuffling between is bright, you have to make some different choices.

Polk DB, JBL GTO, Pioneer, all of that is going to sound bright / too froward.

If you want less up front / bright sound, you need to use other products

What i need is good music clarity something like Sound Magic PL30 earphones. It just need little more bass and little high.

@Blueraven: Can you shed some light what components are neutral sounding with HU combination. What is the sound signature of JBL X333 HU

What I came to know is Morel comps gives slightly warm sound and good silk dome tweeter. DLS comp will also give similar signature not sure about the price and availability. You can also check Infinity reference components.
