Help with components

I need some help with components. I recently purchased a 2013 RAV4 and wanted to upgrade the sound system. I installed a set of kenwood 709 components starting with my front stage. These have decent sound, but not much cleaner than the factory speakers. I then installed a clarion xc1410 amp and a set of morel Maximo's. These are very detailed and I can hear details in music that I typically can not hear. The issue I am having..... The tweeters are mounted in the factory dash locations and fire up at the windshield. There is no attenuation at the crossover and my ears are fatigued. I built an L-pad and tuned down the highs, however feel I am loosing some of the mix and the tweets are still too bright. I am considering a set of jbl p660c and attenuating the tweet at -6db. Does anyone have experience with the p660c's in a dash install? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Get more amp channels and run them active. It helps to have some dsp to set them, but even just having sperates gain controls for them helps a lot.
