I have room for two 4"-6" speakers...what combo would be most effective for good overall sound?
That would complicate the build somewhat - you would need a crossover, and also need to build a cabinet to isolate the woofers from the mid-range.

Two 6" FR units in same cab adjacent to each other - NO. There would be lot of "comb filtering" and that would degrade the sound.

Dub step with a lot of bass? Not ideal FR territory... specially in a small cabinet.

Larryldspkr suggested the CHR-70.3 -should work within the constraints you have. The bass champ when it comes to small FR drivers is the EL-70. Probably no longer available at CSS - you need to write to Planet10 to see if he has stock. This will need slightly bigger cabinets vs CHR-70.3.

But again, stuff like dubstep at loud volumes can stress a FR driver (specially a small one), and lead to driver over excursion if not careful.

Or you can go 2 way - small mid-bass like this might work mated with a tweeter:

Dayton Audio ND105-4 4" Aluminum Cone Midbass Driver 4 Ohm 290-212

There is an 8 ohm version of this driver too. No experience with these - so can't really say if good or bad.

I suggest you read around.
for dubstep, you could use a FR abut you need to add stereo subs to fill in the bass. you will get good sound
IMO, no matter what 4 inch, you will miss the bass, better either add subs or
you could simply build a known two-way design with a 6 inch midbass a 1 inch dome tweeter. but then again, you wont have 30 hz response, stereo subs would.

6"fullrange going to be any better?Would 2 midrange and 1 tweeter work well...what are some good tweeter and midranges?
Will the tweeter and mid ranges hook up to the lepai 2020?
If so, how?

Step up to the Mark Audio Alpair 10.2, they could work in that size enclosure! More expensive but killer bass as good as or better than most woofers that size! Also no need for a tweeter or crossover, so a simple solution. They take a little while to break in but a little patience will be well rewarded. BTW these are 5.25 inch drivers, well worth the extra cost!
