Default should I change my ID coaxials for my pioneer comps?

Hi, I'm currently running 6.5 Image dynamics coaxials for front stage off of a 100.2 mb quart amp. I have pioneer TS-A1604C components lying around and was wondering which would perform better in my situation? (mb quart claims 100watts rms per side for their amp). The ID coaxials are rated at 100watts rms each, the pioneer comps are rated at 50 watts rms each. Would the pioneers be better for me since I would be able to properly power them, or are the image dynamic coaxials better? I noticed the frequency range is broader on the pioneers, and obviously they are components which is generally a better design. They are in the doors of my grand prix. all opinions are welcome, here are links to the speakers at sonic

Kinda tough. The ID's seem like better quality. Comps will usually out perform coax's

You could always just try it out, if you don't like the comps more, just take them out.

what is better to you? The pioneers will likely be a tiny bit louder, while I suspect the id will still have better sq despite being coaxs. I've never been particularly impressed with pioneer, besides their hu's.

so, I tried them out. Didn't like them. They sound way too bright for my liking. I'll have to stick with the ID's for now. I will be upgrading in the near future though, and wondering if it's easier to achieve my goal of a "warm" sounding (sufficient midbass) from a decent component set , or to run a 3 way active setup with a designated midbass in door, and midrange/tweets in kicks
