tweeters in rear doors?

I have a 2004 ext cab. I'm thinking about putting in better after market speakers (which would bring me to component speakers) and I was wondering if it would be better to put tweeters the the back or just leave it to the regulars. I apologize, for I am not great on the terminology for audio. For now I am running 320 watt pioneers, which are three-way speakers, I do have the stock tweeters still plugged in, as well as a Pioneer GM-D8604 Class FD 4-Channel Bridgeable Amplifier and a DEH-X36UI head unit if that helps at all.

The best engine in the world is the vagina, it takes any size piston, it's self-lubricating, starts with 1 finger, and every 4 weeks does an oil change. It's a pity the ECU is so damn temperamental. -- Author Unknown

In audiophile terms, its best to run the rear system at a passband well below tweeter range. Example, crossing a rear fill from about 200hz through 6000hz would be about right. Reason: The very last thing you want to do is have the rear speakers drag the sound stage backward. If anything, the rear should provide a neutral fill. Stock speakers would be more than sufficient for this, IMO.

Contrastingly, putting all your efforts (money, time) into the front instead and making it the very best it can be, would be advised. Add a processor to your setup for instance, and you've got yourself a great system beginning. Another nice advantage of running a processor (and the right amp channels), you can run separate drivers (like separate tweeters you like, and then separate woofers you like) which may end up cheaper, and make them work together by picking their frequency ranges (crossovers.)
