I used a VIBE component speaker with a mid range and tweeter set up. I managed to fit the VIBE tweets in the same recess as the standard ones and replaced the standard grilles back on top.
The mid ranges required a little of fabrication to mount them but no dramas tho. I just drilled the rivets out for the alloy plate that the standard ones fit onto and used an MDF ring to mount the new ones. This allows for a better sound quality.

You can also put sound deadening material on the back of the doors whilst the speakers are off which again boosts the sound quality. If the Dynamat stuff is too pricey for you then try builders tar adhesive flashing tape. Its about a 1/3 of the price and does the same job!!

:D

After clambering round in the loft I found the box. Have a look at this link to the halfords website and that'll give you all the info you'll need.
I took the covers of the tweets and they fit fine.....
Mids are 6.5" or 165mm. Not sure about tweets but straight swap..
