Why full range over component speakers?
Being the stock setup doesn't mean it was right for the vehicle. Don't get me wrong; components have their place but as mentioned above, why hamstring yourself to specific frequencies when you can have them all and adjust them to optimal volume levels for your particular music taste and your particular hearing.
Now if you don't get a DSP ( which IMO would be a mistake ) then a passive x'd over set of speakers is fine but even still I'd be willing to bet your HU you choose probably has active Xovers anyways again making the passive set moot - it's just extra stuff that has to be stuffed into the door ( or w/e ) and more wire. Passive Xovers are old school.
Real issue is alot of people buy equipment, get it installed, and then get the "itch" for more and if you properly plan then you provide yourself with a platform that is ready to be improved upon as your $$$ and desire sees fit. The alternative is to start over. Like alot of things, spend a little extra now so you can save a lot more later.
