Default Need Speaker Advice

I have a 1999 F250 light duty and I am looking to replace the factory speakers in all four doors. I have a nice Pioneer head unit that I was initially going to use to power them but I think I have changed my mind. I have 2 Autotek Super Sport 200.2 amps that put out 75 rms x 2 at 4 ohms that I want to use to power the front and back speakers, I have them so I might as well use them. I really don't want to install a sub so I am looking for speakers with decent base response, I know I won't have earth-shattering bass, but that is ok with me, it just needs to be decent. Anyway, I am not sure what speakers to get. I know I don't want Infinity's, I hear too much about harsh highs and I know I do not want that. I am also curious if I can fit a component set of speakers, either 6.5 or 5.25, into the factory front door location with a adaptor without drilling a hole in the door panel for the tweeter. I will only have this truck a few more years and I plan to get a newer Ford truck, so I would like to move this system to my next vehicle as well. This would allow me a little better sound with a round driver in the front and since 04 & up model years have a tweeter location, then these components would also work in my next truck. (I know this last part may sound a bit crazy but 'm planning ahead.) Anyway, here is what I am looking at:

Pioneer TS-D6802R (maybe TS-D1720C for the fronts)
Polk DXi or db series
Alpine SPS-517 or SPR-68

Since speakers will be the only part of this system I will really have to buy I would like to spend not more than $200 for all 4, but will pay a little more for the right choice. Thanks for the advice in advance.

Yes they do. But most seem to power them off an aftermarket HU. Not sure how well they will perform with 75 watts.
