Finally doing sound system!! Speaker advice needed

Ok so Im finally doing it. Heres the rundown of what I have planned

Alpine CDE-HD149BT head unit
vtwin audio install kit with splash cover
Hawgwired 6.5 adapters
2 Soundstream 520D amps
Speakers in fairing(6.5), lower fairings(6.5), Hogtunes speaker lids(6x9), and tour pak pods with adapters (6.5)

Totaling 8 speakers. What should I do for speakers?

Deciding factor would be the budget. Whats your budget for 8 speakers.

EXACTLY! Here's my opinion on the matter.

1. Do you like your music? Like REALLY REALLY like to ROCK out?

2. Are you a guy who wants the best gear available and isn't one to compromise?

If you answer with an emphatic YES, then get the good stuff. IF you can't afford the good stuff, save your pennies until you can. Hertz and Focal have been suggested already. I own both systems. I have a buddy with an 8-speaker JL Audio system on his custom and would put the JL Audio product as a 3rd choice.
