Play with the hi-low freqs to get a good "blend" between the speakers and the sub if applicable.
Reference "how to set gains" in the how-to section to make sure your getting the most from them and the amp.
Do you have a dedicated battery for the stereo or just one battery?
What size power cable is going to the amp? 8ga, 4ga etc.

There will be a slight reduction in sensitivity between the coaxials and components. The separate components will have an insertion loss due to a multi-component outboard crossover where as the coaxial is strictly 2nd order highpass.
However, the component has a full 1-inch dome versus a 3/4-inch dome. And, because the midbass cone has a solid dustcap (without a tweeter mounting post) it has more surface area. This more than offsets the moderate efficiency difference.
Try bringing the tweeter on the components up to zero dB and gain the coaxials down a bit on the amplifier to bring these speakers into balance. Without photos and without all the particulars its hard to speculate, ie: positioning, phasing, acoustic isolation, etc. And numerous other considerations. Also, check to see if both front and rear amplifier active crossovers are set the same (either 'fullrange' or very low just for protection since you don't have a sub yet).
