In need of speakers (Urgent)

So as the title said I am in need of some speakers like now. As some of you know I have just installed a 4 chan amp into my truck and about 2 months ago I installed some kenwood speakers.

Well either them amp and speakers are not compatible or I did the adjustments wrong on the amp settings but I followed the guide step by step. Anyways my speakers are fried. Either listening to my Alpine on volume 6 is to loud for the speakers, or the amp was to powerful or something else. All I know s I am now in the market for new speakers once again.

So I am thinking about getting some 6x9s this time to put in the front and rear. I just want to get some opinions out there and make sure the speakers and amp will be compatible cause I don't have a whole lot of money to be wasting.

Here's the speakers I currently have
Amp I have
Headunit I have

Here are some speakers I am thinking about getting cause they're in my price range and look to be compatible with my amp

Amazon.com: Kenwood KFC-6982IE 6-Inch x 9-Inch 500-Watt Max Power 5-Way Speaker System: Car Electronics
Amazon.com: Pioneer TS-A6992R 5-Way 6-Inch X 9-Inch 460-Watt Speaker: Car Electronics

Make sure you don't use the gain as a volume ****. It is not as pretty much everyone is unaware. Look for a tutorial on how to set a gain properly.

Yeah I set it according to the manual that came with the amp. It pretty much said turn the gain all the way down, turn the volume on the head unit to 3/4 of its max volume. Then turn the gain up until the music becomes distorted.

that's a decent amp. you have plenty of clean power available to have a good sounding system.
don't blow it with 6x9s. for one they don't fit 2) they would likely cause your doors to rattle 3) you don't need 5 supertweeters on anything that's just silly..

I suggest you buy your self a low priced set of component speakers (just one set), and a basic subwoofer+box.

Amazon.com: Phoenix Gold RSD6.5CS 6.5" Radial SD Series 2-way Component System: Automotive

Amazon.com: Atrend E12S B Box Series 12-Inch Single Hatchback Enclosures: Car Electronics

then add your choice of low power handling sub..
example R1S410 - Rockford Fosgate PRIME 10" Single 4 ohms R1 Series Subwoofer

You obviously seem to want more bass... the speakers I abouve are a perfect starter set, they are known for their massive midbass output and clean highs. a sub will pickup where those leave off. forget about the rear speakers. I guarantee the above setup will louder and better sounding then just putting 4 new regular speakers in.

you will absolutely need to figure out how to set gains and crossovers on your amp...
