2-3 way is nice... what I think it means is your mid range, high range and lows

no need for 4 and 5 ways, dont really even need a 3 way
a 2 way is plenty good for stuff, only way i would get a 3-way is in high end component speakers, just go for a nice 2 way coax or 2 way component set, amp them better sound

Three-way, or triaxial, speakers take the separate woofer and tweeter from a two-way design and add a midrange driver for enhanced warmth and texture. Select three-ways use a supertweeter, instead of a midrange, for extended high frequency response. Four-ways combine a woofer, a midrange, a tweeter, and a supertweeter for even more detail.

hey boss let me know. i can get you some nice ma audio 6x8's or almost any other brand and i am local. http://maaudio.com/productview.cfm?pid=2569640 can do these for 135 picked up or 145 BTW thats for 2-pairs of speakers, 4 total. if i have to meet you somewhere around 1604. that price is for the pair. i have had great success with these either ran off a deck or amped. in fact i just did a system for my neihbor in his dodge with this model in a 6x9 and a 6.5 in the rear off a 100x4rms amp and they sound nice. the positionable tweeter really enhances the soundstage. i have dealt with RF/Pioneer/Sony/Alpine and for the price point i like these hands down. you will not be disappointed.

the highest i go would be a 3 way. Just for the fact you have you highs,mids,and lows. Basically all you need in a system. Add some components and thats 100 times better. As of now im running 2 way tho. All on personal preference
