I haven't figured that out yet! I was only using my son's CD while his car
('83 GTI) was waiting repair. I understand that the front speakers are
"glued" to the grill. I'm questioning whether it is worth the effort to
replace them.  As for rear speakers, I'm not sure how big I can go, I'd be
OK with a high quality 51/2" or 61/2" speaker. Probably will go with
Infinity when I do, but I've heard good about several other brands as well.
I listen to classical, blues & jazz so the big base iasn'e a priority for me.  

Good Luck
