Default new front stage (pics) and a question

I had some extra compent speakers laying around, and I got bored. This is what I came out with:

I need to paint the tweeter screws black (visible in middle pic), and get some more speaker screen to completely cover the opening. My question comes, as to what I should power them with. The compents can handle 65W max. The 4x6'* can handle 120W. My options are this:

Compents to headunit, 4x6 to amp
or
Compents to amp, 4x6 to headunit

The amp will send 60W max per channel, and the headunit is 52W max per channel. Which setup would sound the best in your opinion

you need to give RMS ratings, not max.

also, what size are the comps? why not put both of them on the amp?

-Sony 4x6'* can handle 30 rms
-Sony HU gives 17 RMS
-Compent sizes: 4" and 1.5" (rms unknown)

The amp is a 2 channel, 120W max amp built for 4-8 ohms. If I run both, it would bridge it down to below the safe level correct?
