Need new speakers, Your thoughts

I've been needing new speakers for some time now and have never been happy with the stock ones. I still have the factory 6-disc HU and really dont want to give it up at this time. For now i can only replace the front speakers.

I was looking at some 2005 Pioneers.

SPECS

PIONEER TS-A6880R

6x8" 240 WATTS 4-WAY SPEAKERS



FEATURES:

Power handling 240watts max
Power hanling 50watts rms
4-way speaker
Sensitivity 91db
Response 30Hz-30kHz
Impedence 4 ohm
Mounting Depth 2-1/2" (62mm)

I've heard sensitivity is important when using a stock HU with low power like ours. Is that true?

I've been looking around and I think I'm going to settle on either Diamond D661i (6.5 convertable component system) or Alpine SPX-137R (TypeX 5.25").

I want some that:
1) Are Bi-ampable
2) Can handle 100W RMS
3) That will fit in the doors...ha....ha.....

Those are all nice, but since college will start for me soon i cant see myself spending over $100 for just two speakers.

both my buddy and I ended up buying a set of MB Quart DSE 216s from onlinecarstereo.com and they were only 80 bucks. I used them for rear fill in my ext. cab, as he used his for the front of a mercury mystique. They sound GOOOOD!!!
