Question Assistance with system set up

If you had to choose between the JBL GTO 608C and the MB Quart 216 FSB Which would you choose? I have not had the chance to listen or try out ether set. This will be my first system set up in years so I was hoping for some advice. I am also on a rather tight budget. Single income family and all. Here is what I got so far. The Head unit I have is the Pioneer 8300UB the amp is a Pioneer 4300f. The amp is putting out 40 watts RMS per channel. Four channel set up. The components would be going in the front doors of a 2003 Chevy Silverado. I already have JBL P6462 4x6s in the rear doors just need to choose the right 6.5 components for the front doors. Like I stated before and you can probably tell from my set up so far I am pretty new to this. Any advice or suggestions on going a different route will be appreciated. Thanks .

Update
Wow No response. No help. Lot of people reading the post. Don't get it. Not even a remark on weather the selection was bad. What is up? Maybe I should have asked what would be a good inexpensive set of components? I am not looking for ear shattering sound. Just something that sounds clear and full. I know the amp probably isn't the best choice. At lest now I know that. 4x6 in the rear doors is not the way most people would go. But that is what happens when you take a chance. I guess this is how people new to this learn. Funny I thought going on to a Car audio forum and asking for advise from people more experienced then I would be helpful. What was I thinking?

First, I wouldnt get mad at the people who you are reaching out to. Second, sometimes when there is a lot of posts things get lost in the shuffle and a friendly bump helps it come back to the top. Third, search is your friend. I am in the same boat as you and search search search for products I am considering. You'll find threads,opinions on virtually everything. Best of luck, keep us updated.

There's a strong sense of DIY in this forum and if you look around questions like these are often overlooked. If you search this forum I think you will find some good input on the models you have in mind. I have no experience with both of those so I can't help you there. Your suggested amp seems on the low side with 40 watt RMS /channel.
I started with a 4x50 watt amp and I am much happier with my current 4x 93 watt RMS and an extra 2x50 watt RMS.
I know the search function is lacking for new members (the wait inbetween searches) but you can use google with this site referenced like:
Code:
JBL GTO 608C  site:www.diymobileaudio.com
Just copy and paste that line in google and read up...

Sorry I can't be more of a help

1982 Porsche 911 SC, Pioneer P88-RSII active 2-way front + sub, Genesis Series III 4 Channel, 1&2 to Hertz ML 1600 woofers, 3&4 bridged to a JBL GTO 804 sub in the front trunk, Vifa XT25 sc-90 04 tweeters powered by a Genesis Series III Stereo 60.

I am sorry I just got done reading a post. Someone wanting to install 30 speakers in a Chevy avalanche. That person got 26 replies. I thought wow. All I was asking was which brand people thought were better. I did end up getting a good set of components for a descent price. Hi phonics Zeus 6.5 it has been a little while I think $55 or $60 with shipping. They sound good but I am over them now and need to do something different. I don't have subs yet. I know that would round out things better but the mid s do not sound as good as I imagined. Like I posted awhile back pretty new to this. I still do not understand some of the terms used in some of the posts. Like Active. For instance "Are the components you installing going active or passive?" I suppose you are right if I read more and sandbag some discussions maybe I will learn and get the answers to my questions with out having to ask any. Again I apologize for sounding mad or irritated.

50 watts per channel sounds about right from what I have gathered so far.

Passive vs active. Passive is when you utilize the crossover that comes with the component set and has pre-set eq curves. Active is when you use the crossover function on your amp, or an independant crossover/processor and manually adjust frequencies to "dial"in your sound.
