If your running the rear doors off the stock amp and front off a Hertz amp, the rear is not really going to be noticed anyway, so go as you please. C2's would probably be the go for the rear if you are never going to run them on an aftermarket amp.
You have higher risk with grey market items (no factory warranty) hence the lower price. I just bought some Polk's from an unauthorised dealer and whilst I haven't installed them yet, after a detailed inspection of the item and the packaging they all look 100% legit.
