Default Focus ZX3 front stage

I am about to install a JBL MS-8 in my 05 focus and will be running the front and rear from the MS-8's internal amp. I have the fronts narrowed down to a old school Fosgate Punch Splits 5.25" component set run active or a pair of old school MB Quart 5.25" reference coax. I could if needed disconnect the tweeters on the MB Quart and still run them active but in the coax config. Last choice is a set of MB Quart Premium components with the 6ohm tweeter mounted coax as well.

What would you all do?
Thanks for any and all opinions!
David

Thanks for the input, I love the idea of the JBL but I have so much gear on hand it would be idiotic not to use it. I will probably go with the Mb Quart Components as I love the sound of the old school MBQ.

Good call I know back in the day when I was just starting out I got to hear a bunch of MB Quarts old school stuff and didn't even realize what it was. Should've bought them when I had the chance.

I am already running one in my BMW.
The MS-8 in my BMW is running 5 Harmon Kardon mid and tweeter pairs and a par of Harmon Kardon 8" under seat woofers with a MS-A5001 on a single Sundown SD1v2 sealed. Sounds amazing! I had to relearn all of my music!
