"Best" Component Speakers?

hi, i'm still a newbie when it comes to car audio, so the search function was only half-helpful. i'm looking to spend maybe $600 for components. could you guys tell me which component speakers would be "best" - i know that "best" is by personal opinion - out of Diamond Audio (don't know which ones), MB Quart (Premium? can i afford Q-Series?), Focal Utopia, and whatever else you think would be good considering my budget. if i get these, what kind of amp do i have to run? i was planning to run a mono Diamond Audio D7, Soundstream Tarantula, Phoenix Gold Titanium, or McIntosh amp for my W7. do i have to get a multi-channel amp now, or get a whole new amp for the components? thanks for any help.

I strongly suggest you take a look at a set of DynAudio speakers... otherwise look at Diamond HEX series

thanks for the info. DynAudio does look pretty good. but, i figured out now that this would be in a C32. and a C32 stock bose system is good enough, and the removal/installation would cost too much - plus, i probably couldn't tell enough difference to justify the price. saving this money to go towards my other ICE like flip-up DVD or pexiglass enclosure... man, modding can be really expensive at times.

Whatever you get, make sure you have it mounted to the actual door, not the door panel. Huge difference in sound.
