True, but most people like more bass, and in an open top vehicle, some bass boost is essential. And if it’s too heavy… just turn down the bass or adjust the EQ on the head unit (not sure what Sync 4 offers here, but it should at least have a bass adjustment).
Here's a question that I can not find an adequate explanation to on the web:

what's the acoustic/sound quality difference between a 2 way 4 inch speaker, and a Bullet 4 inch tweeter (assuming both have the same specs)? one vs the other, pros n cons, etc

If you install 4ohm speakers that are replacing 2ohm speakers and using the factory amp/radio, wouldn't that decrease your output?

My recommendation is 6.5 inch components up front. And 4 inch coaxial in the rear. Use an amp, they make small enough 2 channel and 4 channel amps to fit behind dash now.

My ideal system would be dsp, 6 channel amp for running speakers active, mono amp and one 10 inch subwoofer

My current plan is to just replace the stock factory speakers (non B&O build) and see if I'm satisfied before going for it with adding an amp and a sub.

Because of that, I'm going for speakers with sensitivity above 90. I'm probably going to get Hertz DCX speakers to replace all the factory speakers and then go from there.

Sorry but I don’t know what a bullet 4” tweeter is.

Just when i thought i had made my mind up selecting 4 inch speakers i came across these bullet tweeters .... apparently they are a class by themselves and mostly they come in an enclosure, with high sensitivity and decent Peak RMS .... the name comes from the aluminum center cone having a bullet shape. They are 4 inch but i dont know if they are strictly tweeters as the name suggests or if they can handle highs AND mid levels?

take a look at these

Bullet tweeters are made just for highs... if you’re into the type of BASS music that has the hi hat symbol tick to it. Not so good for mid sounds and most come with a capacitor to block most of the midrange anyway. Another issue with a lot of low dollar speakers is that they use a single or very small range of frequency for rating sensitivity... so kinda deceptive a lot of times. These are just from my experience, and it’s been a few years since I built any serious systems, so things may have changed.

I see. I would just put some quality 2-way speakers in the dash.
