Default Noob/Neo needing sound advice...

First I'd like to say I'm new to the forum and would like to preface what advice I will be receiving from the forum members with a Thank You.

So I've jumped into the diy head first and am trying to figure out if I can use component speakers in a floor-standing build. I've read up on the cons of using car audio speakers in a home build (air space issues, designed for small listening area, not magnetically shielded, etc...). But I think would going with a higher end component speaker set would alleviate some of that. Would it not? I was looking to use a pair Kicker QS652's for a center channel (- 1 tweeter) just to see what would happen. I'd bi-wire the set up of course (Audioquest Rocket 44) and use the given crossovers that come with the speakers as I am not tech savvy enough nor do I have the software to develop a crossover.

Power is provided by a Pioneer Elite SC-37 which is known to handle 4 ohms with ease even though it is rated for 6. It'd cut off before any major issues were to occur anyway.

Any advice you all could give would be much appreciated and I'm happy to be a part of the forum.

I've never really looked into it, but if those are the "best" cons you've found offered I wouldn't be worried about the speaker plans you have. Generally speaking, I never noticed a distinct difference between home and car speakers. What you have in parentheses are some awfully pitiful attempts at segregating audio drivers into "home" and "car". But this is only my opinion. I'm all for you going ahead. You appear to have a plan in place, which is the first step. Run with it, and let us know how things turn out.
