Anyone Heard or Installed These Speakers?

I am looking to buy a Christmas gift to myself and looking to add to my stereo upgrade. I am looking for some door speakers and found these Rockford Fosgate R1652-S speakers. They are component speakers, but they look to be pretty new. Has anyone installed these by chance or have any opinions?

I am in no rush, just trying to weigh my options before I pull the trigger.

Is it better to use the 5x7's and 6x9's or convert them all to 6" coax or separates? The owner of a stereo store in town said that you get better sound from round speakers.

Yea i'd go with a component set. Just be sure to buy the adapter plates and seal all the holes for better mid-bass.
